Diocese features in Netherlands TV Brexit coverage

The Diocese has featured in the Brexit coverage of the Netherlands TV channel NOS (BBC equivalent).  Its main evening current affairs programme “Nieuwsuur” on 29 January followed the European Parliament’s approval of the Withdrawal Agreement earlier that day.  

The news item included interview comments from Bishop Robert, and filming at Holy Trinity Pro-Cathedral, Brussels.

In a piece focused on the emotional and practical impact of Brexit on British people working in the EU institutions, the Bishop said UK officials serving in the EU had “a sense of not being valued by their home country.”

The Bishop said he prays for “continuing strong and warm relations between Britain and our European friends, and for reconciliation and peace.”
