Labour Shadow Cabinet Member to Speak at ‘Rejoin EU’ Conference

Yesterday European Movement UK Chair and Labour peer Andrew Adonis shared details of his new eurofederalist conference taking place later this month  – describing his event as having a:

“Great line-up in support of our campaign ‘step by step towards Rejoin’.”

Curiously, second on the billing is none other than Keir Starmer’s own Shadow Secretary of State for Scotland – Ian Murray.
