In 1940, Churchill looked out on a Europe that lay at Hitler's feet, and vowed "We shall never surrender". But that's what a vote to leave is: in the end, exit is just running away.
Feeling confused? With the EU referendum less than a month away, I'd hardly blame you after all the misinformation of the last few weeks. As a business person who isn't in politics but has been campaigning to keep Britain in the EU I've been shocked at just how much rubbish is being spoken in this debate.
Is Jeremy Corbyn such an inept politician that after months of campaigning in the EU referendum it still feels like he doesn't give a damn about remaining inside the European Union, even if he occasionally whispers that he does? Or would it suit him and his Socialist cabal, currently in control of the Labour Party, for the Brexiteers to drag Britain back to an era of politics they understand?
Recent polls show the vote currently split down the middle, with approximately 50% of the public believing the bullshit sprouting out of the mouths of Brexit campaigners Nigel Farage, Michael Gove and Iain Duncan Smith, and a further 50% believing the gobshite of "everyone else".
It is time to nail another lie: Britain is not ruled by unelected bureaucrats in Brussels. So when Michael Gove says he wants voters to take back control from organisations that are 'distant, unaccountable and elitist', he is deliberately perpetuating the lie.
There's another way of remembering the dead of the First World War. The "Ring of Remembrance" at the new International Memorial of Notre Dame de Lorette near Arras bears the names of 579,606 soldiers who fell in the region. They are engraved there in alphabetical order - not by nation.
Give us the facts. Give us warnings. But please-can we stop with the constant cloud hanging over our heads? If you believe some of the more extreme claims on both sides, depending on what we choose on June 23rd, it might be one of the last times we get to see the clouds, anyway.
There is no arguing against the corruptness of the EU, the system is flawed and concentrates authority in a minority who are given the political and economic power to crush the sovereignty of countries like Greece. Yet right now, I believe Britain needs to remain in the union to be able to fight back with Greece but also to squash the re-emergence of the right, neoliberal branch of the Tory party, who are hell bent on propelling us back into a Thatcherite age.
A Leave vote does not have to be one to call for the borders to be closed, it can be a call instead to demand not just to allow free movement of workers in Europe, but also to allow in refugees escaping our bombs in the Middle East.
What if I told you that we could leave the European Union with little risk to our economy? That we could regain control of our borders without any ri...
Over the weekend my piece on why the UK government turned away more than 2,700 non-EU nurses was widely circulated on Twitter and Facebook, but after ...
The dressing used to cover the infected wound on the body of the Conservative Party is completely off now and the stench of inflamed flesh tells a fascinating and bitter story.
Welcome to the post-truth world of 'our own reality'. It is a world in which the UK sends £350million a week to Brussels (which it does not), has no power to stop Turkey joining the EU (which it does) and no control over its borders (which it also does). It is the world of Boris Johnson, Penny Mordaunt and Nigel Farage.
If we want to be the generation of change, first, young people have to be pro-active on voting day. Our age group is the most vociferous in favour of EU membership, but we are also the most apathetic about elections, with only half of 18-34-year-olds saying they would definitely vote.
The Leave-ers are very concerned about protecting Westminster's influence, because that's the small pond in which they feel important. Engaging in negotiations within the bigger institutions of the European Union is tough. it's a job for grown ups who know they they are talking about. Johnson need not apply.
The best thing for the country, in the aftermath of the referendum result, would be for the Tories to unite and show some true leadership-with someone who has proved he can lead at the helm. If a certain group of Conservatives choose to discount this in favour of pushing forward their own little agenda, then it is they, and not David Cameron, who will have proved themselves untrustworthy in this referendum.
