Speaking at the pro-Europe rally in Newcastle
I was invited to be one of the speakers at the pro-Europe rally at Grey's Monument in Newcastle yesterday. I was on at 2pm, just before John Shipley, former Lib Dem leader of Newcastle Council and now a Lib Dem peer. My speech concentrated on the dangers to foreign businesses and jobs of Brexit and on the dangers of the Right using the referendum vote as a sign to take the UK back to the social conformity of the 1950s, rolling back the decades of the growing acceptance of diversity. Overall the speech seemed to go well. You can see it on the video above.
