Emily Thornberry comment on US VP Mike Pence visit

Emily Thornberry MP, Labour’s Shadow Foreign Secretary, ahead of Prime Minister Boris Johnson hosting US Vice President Mike Pence, said:

“Boris Johnson must finally show the backbone he has lacked in all his previous dealings with the Trump administration. The Prime Minister must stand up to them on Climate Change, on the Iran nuclear deal, and their wilful worsening of division and humanitarian crisis in the Middle East, but also stand up to Mike Pence personally regarding his abhorrent views on the LGBT+ community and the reproductive rights of women.”
