I hope Ben Rogers gets to Parliament soon.

We need someone of his calibre in the Commons addressing human rights issues.

I just received a release from the CDU which is interesting so I will translate it.

The Belarus government must allow freedom of expression and assembly and end persecution of all democratic opposition...our friends in the democratic opposition ought to know that the CDU will always stand by their side.
