Ed’s Day – 27 June 2019

Victoria Derbyshire’s live tv hustings has been covered here, but here’s Ed’s take.

Here’s his opening pitch.

And talking again about climate change:

Slamming Boris on immigration:

Immigration has been a great thing for our country. But politicians like Johnson have vilified those coming to help build and contribute to our great country for their own political gain in the Brexit debate.

Yet businesses across the country are already having to deal with acute shortages of staff thanks to the Brexit uncertainty, and this proposal from our potential next PM does nothing to solve that. If implemented, an Australian-style visa cap would only make it worse.

Johnson is only pandering to the likes of Farage, who has long pushed for this kind of unfair system. Nigel Farage ought to be the last person a potential Prime Minister should be looking to for inspiration on how to run a fair and effective immigration system.

Then off to the Gatwick hustings;

    After the Andrew Marr Show (10.00-11.00) BBC1 splits into regional programmes.
    In the Southeast Ed Davey MP was shown as saying that the MP for Eastbourne would take the Liberal Democrat whip again. He keeps his promises. He is a Liberal Democrat.
    On the show Antony Hook, Southeast MEP, said the same. https://www.libdems.org.uk/antony-hook
    Antony Hook was also asked whether he would stand for the Commons. He said not while he is an MEP.
    On the same show was a Faragist MEP who said ‘Yes’, she has a constituency in mind, but refused to say which one. Challenged on a range of policies which would be relevant to an MP she did not have substantive answers.
