Healthy climate, healthy development—we can do both. #Cop25Madrid

Appeal to EP: You should be open to a long extension, if the UK wishes to rethink its strategy. 6 million people signed the petition, 1 million marched. They may not feel sufficiently represented by UK Parliament but they must feel represented by you. Because they are Europeans.

The extension request has just arrived. I will now start consulting EU leaders on how to react. #Brexit
