    The European Parliament today voted overwhelmingly in favour of Catherine Bearder MEP's report on the EU's Action Plan against wildlife trafficking.

    The report to the Environment Committee demanded that wildlife crime IS included in Europol's 2017 SOCTA (Serious and Organised Crime Threat Assessment), upgrading wildlife crime to a "serious and organised crime" as they have with terrorism, human trafficking and arms smuggling.

    Speaking in today's Brexit debate in the House of Commons, Liberal Democrat European Union spokesperson Nick Clegg commented:

    "The Conservatives are reinventing history and ignoring precedent.

    "They say there was an overwhelming majority, but clearly it was relatively close.

    "They claim to have a telepathic ability to know exactly why over 17 million voted Leave, and that all those reasons are the same.

    I was honoured to be part of the European Parliament's observer delegation to the CITES CoP17 in South Africa. As a campaigner for wildlife protection I know the opportunity to influence protection at the highest level is rare.

    Before I headed to South Africa I voted in favour of a European Parliament resolution calling for all elephants to be listed on Appendix 1 of CITES (the Convention in Trade of Endangered Species) This would mean in effect a total ban on the international trade in elephants.

    Theresa May talked a lot about helping ordinary working people, yet she said nothing about reversing the most damaging legacies of her predecessor since last May.

    The Liberal Democrats have set out three things Theresa May should do to live up to her rhetoric: abandoning the cap on public sector pay, reversing cuts to universal credit and reversing the tax hike on insurance.

    Theresa May used to criticise the nasty party' - now she is leading it.

    Regardless of the rhetoric, the Conservatives have moved to the right. The Prime Minister's words about a pitch to the centre-ground are utterly divorced from her party's actions over the last few days. The Conservatives are reckless, divisive and uncaring. They are the fence-building, snooping-on-your-emails, foreign-worker-listing party and that is something that most people will be revulsed by.

    Commenting on plans unveiled by the government that businesses will be forced to reveal how many foreign staff they employ, Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron said:

    "The Government's plan on foreign workers is a nasty little policy that deserves to be thrown out on the rubbish heap. This threatens to further stoke the resentment that has seen increases in hate crime across our country. Only the Liberal Democrats are fighting to keep Britain open, tolerant and united.

    The Conservative Party has long claimed to be the Party of businesses -but, their track record since May 2015 shows that they are now anything but.

    Brexit represents a massive threat to businesses and jobs, but Theresa May's Government keep sending mixed messages about vital trade relationships and our Membership of the Single Market.
