The European Parliament and the UK’s renegotiation III: President Schulz

President of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz, spoke at LSE last Friday. Here's my take on his speech for the LSE's Brexit Vote Blog.

In a speech on Friday morning to the LSE, the President of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz, set out his case for why Britain’s referendum debate should not overlook the wider European and global challenges facing both the EU and the UK.

The Brexit vote blog has been setting out views from the European Parliament, which can be found here and here.
