Thousands of Brits have put their name to a Valentine’s Day
card to the European Union.
People wishing to demonstrate their love for the bloc have
signed the online card leaving handwritten messages to send to representatives
in the European parliament.
Receiving the card on behalf of the European Union is German
Green MEP Terry Reintke who last month set up the EU-UK Friendship group aiming
to forge closer links with the UK as it ceased to be a member state of the EU.
The group has over 70 members at its inaugural meeting,
which at the time represented over 10 per cent of the European parliament.
You can contribute your signature to the card by visiting alliwantis.eu/sign

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
