16-01-2020

The Brexit Party voted against this non-legislative resolution. Principally, the Brexit Party opposes the EU’s infringement proceedings against any sovereign nation. We believe that the governments of these nations, who were democratically elected, unlike many EU lawmakers, have the right to enact the policies on which they have been elected. For these reasons, we voted against calls for further hearings with Poland and Hungary.

16-01-2020

Brexit Party MEPs voted to abstain on this non-legislative, non-binding report. The European Ombudsman has done a decent job on investigating issues within the Commission and EU institutions. The report praises the Ombudsman and rightly calls for more transparency within the EU structure.

15-01-2020

The Brexit Party have voted to abstain on this legislative report. Whilst we support the principle of cooperation with neighboring countries, particularly when this concerns combatting serious crime and terrorism, we cannot support this being facilitated via the EU. As we believe these agreements should be conducted bilaterally, we abstained on this report.

15-01-2020

Brexit Party MEPs have abstained on this consent vote. This is a technical amendment to bring the agreement into line with EU rules, and therefore we felt it most appropriate to abstain.

. ‒ Although the Brexit Party opposes EU tax harmonisation, and does not support EU legislation over the UK, these provisions would reduce the scope of VAT and so we abstained.

15-01-2020

Brexit Party MEPs voted against this motion for a resolution. We do not support the EU spending trillions of euros and harmonising laws and targets. If Member States wish to achieve climate objectives, it should be on their own terms and not the EU’s. Brexit Party MEPs voted on a number of amendments in order to reduce the extent of targets and increases in EU legislation.

15-01-2020

The Resolution regrets the loss of freedom of movement and seeks to reverse the burden of proof for settled status, accordingly the Brexit Party voted against.

Roczne sprawozdanie za rok 2018 dotyczące praw człowieka i demokracji na świecie oraz polityki UE w tym zakresie (A9-0051/2019 - Isabel Wiseler-Lima) EN

15-01-2020

The Brexit Party voted against this non-legislative report. Whilst we respect the importance of the human rights issues raised within this report we are opposed to the European Union becoming involved. We are firmly opposed to the increasing use of serious human rights issue abroad as justification for the enhancement of the EU’s foreign policy apparatus.

Sprawozdanie roczne z realizacji wspólnej polityki zagranicznej i bezpieczeństwa (A9-0054/2019 - David McAllister) EN

15-01-2020

The Brexit Party voted against this non-legislative report. We are opposed to the development of the EU’s strategic autonomy and the further transfer of foreign policy decision making to the EU level.

Sprawozdanie roczne z realizacji wspólnej polityki bezpieczeństwa i obrony (A9-0052/2019 - Arnaud Danjean) EN

15-01-2020

The Brexit Party voted against this non-legislative report. We are opposed to the development of the European Defence Union. Defence of the realm is fundamental to nation-state sovereignty and should remain the responsibility of the member-states.

Stanowisko Parlamentu Europejskiego dotyczące konferencji w sprawie przyszłości Europy (B9-0036/2020, B9-0037/2020, B9-0038/2020) EN

15-01-2020

The Brexit Party MEPs abstained on this non-legislative, non-binding resolution. While there were elements in this report we opposed such as calling for transnational lists for EU elections, along with our concern this conference will just be an echo chamber for EU elites to convince themselves there needs to be greater centralisation of powers and spending of money at EU level, as the UK is leaving it was not our place to be part of those discussions.

24-10-2019

I voted against many of the amendments on this motion for a resolution concerning the effects of bankruptcy of Thomas Cook Group. Many of these are calling for more EU action to be taken and funds to be created in the event of similar events happening in the travel and tourism sector. Whilst I am of course sympathetic to those who have been affected by the collapse of Thomas Cook, more EU legislation is not the answer.

Porozumienie o współpracy między Eurojustem a Serbią (A9-0009/2019 - Juan Fernando López Aguilar) EN

10-10-2019

The Brexit Party have voted to abstain on this report. Whilst data exchanges and cooperation, particularly for the purpose of combatting serious crime, are very important we do not support this being facilitated at EU level. However, if the sovereign nation of Serbia wishes to participate it would not be appropriate to block their decision. Therefore, as we support the underlying principle of cooperation and data sharing to combat serious crime, but not the EU facilitating it, we felt that abstaining was most suitable.

Projekt budżetu korygującego nr 4 na rok budżetowy 2019: Zmniejszenie środków na zobowiązania i środków na płatności zgodnie ze zaktualizowanymi potrzebami w zakresie wydatków i aktualizacją dochodów (zasoby własne) (A9-0012/2019 - John Howarth) EN

10-10-2019

The Brexit Party voted against this budgetary proposal. We would have supported the original Commission proposal as it reduced the amount of money in a number of EU budget lines and would lead to a reduction in Member States’ contributions for this year, thereby saving British taxpayers’ money. However, the rapporteur UK Labour MEP amended this resolution to redeploy the savings, meaning it would be spent in other areas of the EU budget instead of saving taxpayers’ money, so we voted against.

Dostosowania kwot uruchamianych z instrumentu elastyczności na 2019 r. do wykorzystania w związku z migracją, napływem uchodźców i zagrożeniami bezpieczeństwa (A9-0013/2019 - John Howarth) EN

10-10-2019

The Brexit Party voted in favour of this budgetary proposal. The original Commission proposal was to reduce a payment plan for future EU spending in the field of migration and security. This proposal was linked to the Draft Amending Budget Number 4, which should have led to a reduction in Member States’ contributions; however, a Labour MEP managed to make amendments to reverse this. In this case, however, the proposition was to support the original proposal to cut EU funding, not the amendments by the rapporteur, so we voted in favour.

Sprzeciw na podstawie art. 112 Regulaminu: Substancje czynne, w tym flumioksazyna (B9-0103/2019) EN

10-10-2019

The Brexit party abstained on this motion for resolution on active substances including flumioxazine. The report criticises the Commission, as they continue to extend regulated acts on allowing this substance when there are concerns as to how safe it is. The Brexit party believe that the Commission should not act in an undemocratic way without being held accountable; however, we cannot support the motion as it also calls on the Commission to create new legislation.

10-10-2019

I voted against this resolution because it should be a decision made at nation state level and not by the EU for all 28 Member States.

I voted against this resolution because it should be a decision made at nation state level and not by the EU for all 28 Member States.

Zewnętrzna ingerencja w wybory i dezinformacja w procesach demokratycznych państw członkowskich i Unii Europejskiej (B9-0108/2019, B9-0111/2019) EN

10-10-2019

The Brexit Party has voted against this non-legislative resolution. The Brexit Party wholeheartedly supports free and fair elections, free speech and democratic accountability. These principles, in part, are integral in our cause to leave the European Union. We believe that reports of Russian electoral interference have already been exposed as baseless propaganda in order to shut down debate and discredit legitimate democratic exercises, such as the UK referendum. Furthermore, the Brexit Party voted against the third amendment because it maliciously – and incorrectly – stated that the Leave.eu campaign received funding from foreign actors despite the National Crime Agency clearing Leave.eu of these allegations in September.
