ABOUT EDWARD MCMILLAN-SCOTT
Edward McMillan-Scott campaigned for the European Movement in the
1975 Referendum and was elected a pro-European Conservative MEP for
Yorkshire & Humber in 1984. He was leader of the Tory MEP group
1997-2001 and was elected a Vice-President of the European Parliament
four times 2004-2014. Edward protested at David Cameron’s split from the
mainstream European Peoples’ Party in 2009 and then sat as a LibDem. He
lost his seat in 2014. In parliament he founded the EU’s Democracy
& Human Rights programme, the world’s largest. He is one of eight
Britons on Putin’s visa blacklist – “a badge of honour”. Edward
regularly speaks on the Rise of the Right and its links with the 1930s.
Edward McMillan’s address and question and answer session will
be followed by light refreshments and an opportunity to chat informally
with Edward and other members of the audience.
