The formal negotiations of the UK’s leaving of the European Union began yesterday in Brussels. Given the current state of UK politics: the election that didn’t quite go as planned and the tide turning strongly against a hard Brexit, there is uncertainty about the outcome.

Last week I had the great pleasure of visiting a farm in Llwyncelyn, Rhondda. During my time as an MEP, I have done many farm visits in different parts of the country and to different kinds of farms. This was the first time in my home area. People don't generally connect the Rhondda Valleys with farming, but of course there are farms on the mountains. Farmers I met from the area explained how farming the urban fringe brought particular problems, but their broader concerns mirrored those of their counterparts across Wales.................. More.

Last year I went with Liz Saville Roberts MP to the refugee camp in Calais and saw at first hand the desperate situation of the people, especially the children.
