This graphic shows the value of the EU single market & cooperation. Instead of being rule-takers, working together ensures European countries can help to define the terms of global trade & push for higher standards.

1.7 million people marched for democracy & freedom in this weekend. The greater the intimidation from Beijing, the larger the turnout on the streets.

In a world increasingly governed by autocratic, populist leaders who want to roll back rights & freedoms, this is a useful reminder of the progress we have made in Europe. Let's not take this for granted.

EU27 citizens contributing to the UK & those still wanting to visit, in the event of a catastrophic no deal, deserve more certainty & advance information than this. Another reason why a disorderly Brexit would be reckless & shouldn't be normalised.

July was the hottest month on earth since records began. As politicians & individuals we all face hard choices, but there can be no doubt, the threat is real & an immediate response is required.

"Radicalisation"? More like standing up for the European ideal, rejecting nationalism & taking responsibility for their children's future.

Violence & repression against democracy campaigners in is reprehensible. It is time for an independent investigation into the use of force by police, as the has already demanded.

Construction of the started 58 years ago today. After dividing Europe, it was torn down almost 30 years ago. A reminder freedom must always be protected & can never be taken for granted. The victims of the GDR regime will not be forgotten.

China's vast network of detention camps targeting mostly Uighurs are reportedly expanding, not retreating. The world must call this out for what it is - unacceptable.

My wish on ? That all young people from across Europe have hope & opportunities, regardless of where they are born or their backgrounds. My advice to young people? Be curious, challenge the status quo & reach for the stars!

The right to move around our continent is freedom. It is opportunity. It is progress & it should be enhanced. Great to see so many Europeans support it.

A huge turnout at protests in Moscow today. The more Putin clamps down on his people, the greater the numbers resisting his repressive mafia state.

May’s elections have been a moment of truth for us, and it exceeded all our hopes: you, Europeans, have massively supported us & demanded to ! As the will soon be back at full force, be sure of one thing: we'll make your vote count. We want Europe NOW!
