What the EU does for you: Fighting Ebola

One of the most serious and important collaborations by European countries through the EU has been in fighting the deadly Ebola virus – through humanitarian aid, vaccine development and improving health systems.

It breaks my heart that Brexit could jeopardise British participation in programmes like this.

Vice-Chair of the Iran Delegation

I’m delighted to have been elected as the Vice-Chair of the European Parliament’s Iran Delegation.

This is a worrying time in the Persian Gulf. If we can play a small part in the European Parliament in promoting peace in the region then I think we’ll be doing something very valuable indeed.

If I can play a small part in that I’ll be deeply honoured and very proud to be representing Britain as an MEP taking part in the European Union as a real peace project – not just for peace within our own borders, but around the world.
