SHEFIELD (Somalilandsun) – British Somalilanders have honoured a member of the European parliament for continued support to the international recognition of their mother Somaliland as a sovereign country.



The honour in the form of a certificate was bestowed to EU MP Godfrey Bloom at a colourful event organized by British Somalilanders in Sheffield city in the UK where the MP reiterated his call to the British government to recognize Somaliland as an independent country.


After thanking the organizers for the recognition of his efforts MP Bloom informed that his Liberal party is which committed to the international recognition of Somaliland has plans to embark on public campaigns to not only familiarize Britons with the issue but force the UK government to action.


Said he, "During forthcoming election campaigns the Liberal party shall post somaliland recognition support adverts in the Daily Express newspaper which shall also be geared towards urging British Somalilanders not to vote for parties whose agenda does not include the recognition of Somaliland"


The Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire representative wondered how the various UK governments formed by the conservative and Labour parties have for 22 years continued to turn a blind eye and deaf ears to the plight of the Horn of Africa country that was its protectorate for over 7 decades.


Arguing that Somaliland's quest for international recognition deserves the support of the British people and government MP Bloom urged British Somalilanders to take action now rather than later by engaging expert legal counsel for engagement with the House of commons and #10 Downing street.


"I always wonder why Britain continues to ignore Somalilanders whose citizens fought bravely with British soldiers during the Second World War" said EU MP Godfrey Bloom in conclusion.
