At this moment, European Movement UK is putting in place the building blocks to face the challenging times ahead.  As we introduce our new team members, Laura Sandys and Richard Corbett, we are also introducing our new logo; symbol of our new focus.  It’s a crisper, modernised rendition of the old one, which strengthens our link with the broader European Movement International.

Modernisation of the website will follow as we focus our efforts on what the European Movement is uniquely positioned to do:  Engaging with grassroots people across the UK to set the record straight about the benefits to Britain whilst helping shape our future at the heart of a peaceful, prosperous and fair European Union.

European Movement cross-party letter on a possible referendum

Ahead of the Prime Minister’s speech on the EU, Labour and Liberal Democrat members of the House of Commons, the House of Lords and the European Parliament have come together in support of a European Movement letter, published in yesterday’s Guardian, advising against putting in question Britain’s membership of the EU. Pressure is mounting from all those who believe that Britain’s future lies firmly within EU. Just like their Conservative colleagues last week, Labour and Liberal Democrat members of the 3 Chambers have come together to support the EM’s long-standing argument that Britain should remain intimately involved in continuing efforts to further improve the way the EU operates and get the European economy out of its current predicament.

“The European Union is more important to Britain than ever, which means that the European Movement is too.  The case for Europe needs to be put loud and clear. Join me in the European Movement to put the pro-European case.”

Rt Hon Charles Kennedy MP, president of the European Movement
