Today at the European Movement Conference in Helsinki we had an inspirational talk from Alex Stubbs, former PM of Finland and now Vice-President of the European Investment Bank. He likened our abandoning the EU to abandoning the Internet, an extraordinary act of self-harm in the contemporary world!
I followed with a talk about all the actions we are taking as Lib Dems in fighting for the UK to remain. There is enormous concern in Europe about the implications of Brexit for both ourselves and the EU, and huge support for Liberal Democrat policies.
This brief visit made just after Helsinki's first winter snowfall has been an ideal preparation for the rigours of canvassing the streets of Tonbridge and Malling in the first December General Election in my lifetime! Full of slush but nonetheless very bracing!
