Brexit: Withdrawal Agreement vote sad day for Europe
Today, the European Parliament will vote on the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement, paving the way for the UK to depart the EU on the 31st of January.
Ska Keller MEP, President of the Greens/EFA group in the European Parliament, comments:
“Brexit was not our choice and we will never stop believing that we are stronger and better placed to solve the challenges we face when we work together. Today is a sad day for Europe and the UK."
"We will continue to support citizens' rights and the principle of solidarity. The ties that bind us run deeper than our political union and although the UK will for now embark on a separate path we will stay partners and friends. If the UK changes its mind in the future then we will leave a light on for them to return home."
