Almost four years after its creation, the New European continues to grow stronger in print and online, offering a pro-European perspective on Brexit and reporting on the political response to the coronavirus epidemic, climate change and international politics. But we can only continue to grow with your support.

Speaking in the House of Commons, Charles Walker first took the opportunity to express his anger at the government’s restrictions on coronaviruses.

I am extremely concerned that we are imposing severe restrictions on peoples’ freedoms without any recourse to parliament, he told MPs.

He said if it was in the national interest he would vote for some of them, but felt it was right for politicians to have their say first, rather than leaving powers to the executive.

Walker also said he was defending a Corbyn for being able to protest without fear of being arrested and fined, in reference to the former brother of Labor leaders Piers Corbyn.

The 1922 committee chairman then turned his anger to Boris Johnson’s Brexit bill – saying it was the wrong move to put the country on the wrong side of the law.

I think we are being asked to place this country, the members of this House and our constituents, on the wrong side of the law before we have exhausted all other options.

I am not a fan of the EU, I was in every division lobby for Brexit, I think they are a pain in the neck.

But surely we have to exhaust all other options before pressing the nuclear button?

And I will not vote for this bill. Because if you keep hitting a dog, don’t be surprised when he bites you. We are all parliamentarians and we deserve to be taken seriously.

He urged the Prime Minister to listen to the concerns of the House and come back with a solution that would allow him to support it.

In a rallying message to his Conservative colleagues, he said: I believe the Conservative Party is the greatest political party of all time, and we must have the courage to live up to that greatness.

Cabinet minister Michael Gove could be seen nodding from his front seat as Walker spoke.

Twitter said it was another hit speech after Opening speech by Ed Milibands at the start of the debate.

You thought Miliband was at the box office but were you up for Charles Walker? journalist Jessica Elgot tweeted.

Another said: I turned on the BBC Parliament just in time to see Charles Walkers’ speech and it was not the take I expected.

Allie Renison tweeted: Charles Walker isn’t much of a surprise. Franchise track record across the board – first Tory MP to pitch the idea of ​​an election when May struggled to get the AO through last year.
