British MEPs are packing up their offices to leave on January 31. We spoke to one of the longest serving members, Richard Corbett, about how he feels leaving the EU institutions he has worked in for more than two decades.


He is one of the most experienced British MEPs. Labour's Richard Corbett joined the European Parliament in 1996. This week will mark this last as a politician representing Britain in Europe. For this pro-European, Brexit is a political tragedy for his country and a moment of personal heartbreak. We spoke to him just days ahead of the January 31 exit date.
