27/01/2021 | 11:25:31 President, Thank you very much and can I also join in the thanks to the rapporteur for her excellent report on a subject which is dominating our media and indeed affecting all our lives, which is why so many of us are not in Strasbourg today.

And the reason is very clear, the situation in the Council of Europe region is not improving. In fact, it's... 01/10/2019 | 10:40:34 Chair, it's a great pleasure to follow another United Kingdom delegate Mr John HOWELL, who is one of the few decent conservatives left in our country.
