I've made my last speech in the European Parliament, of this session at least - my 78th since 2004 I think.

I returned to the Israel-Palestine issue, pointing out that the near total blockade of Gaza continues and amounts to collective punishment of innocent people.

"Enough is enough," I said.

Israel's behaviour is shocking. Far from upgrading the EU-Israel agreement we should be suspending it entirely.

Absolutely Chris - all power to you and all that you do. I hope I may be joining you to offer some moral support in the next term!
