The EU And The UK - Parting Ways But Working Together

Martin Schulz | Posted 23.09.2016 | UK Politics
Martin Schulz

We cannot shape a new European future at such a time of fragility by indulging in nostalgia - none of us, including the UK, can bring back the past. The European Parliament and myself are committed to keep the European Union and its Member States fit for the challenges of the 21st Century: to increase citizens' rights, their freedom and their security. I believe a close relationship between the EU and the UK is instrumental to ease this task, but clarity is needed. The ball is in the British camp.

Benedict Rogers

For the first time in my life, I am a floating voter. I have four months in which to make up my mind. At this stage, I am genuinely undecided which way I will vote in the referendum on Britain's relationship with the European Union. My position right now is that I will listen very carefully to both sides, and make my decision when I have to - on 23 June.

Only With Fresh Budget Ideas Can the EU Meet the Challenges It Faces

Martin Schulz | Posted 25.01.2014 | UK Politics
Martin Schulz

Today's approval by the European Parliament of the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) 2014-2020 is an extremely important vote. It means much needed EU funds can be invested into programmes ranging from combatting youth unemployment, support for less-well off regions in the EU via the structural funds, to much needed funding in research and development and support for agriculture. However, the amounts available from the MFF are far from perfect...
