Both sides of the EU referendum campaign are behaving as though it were a general election. They are campaigning hard, fighting tooth and nail and us...
For young people with their whole future ahead of them it must be increasingly obvious that a vote to remain in the EU is a step back into the past, shackling ourselves to a constrictive Big Brother Leviathan that is so odds with the freedoms, innovation and internationalism that young people take for granted today. A vote to Leave on 23 June is a vote to expand our horizon and reacquaint ourselves with the 6.9billion of the world's population who do not have the privilege of an EU passport.
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.
If there is a Leave vote, there will be a period of uncertainty as Parliament tries to decipher exactly what a Leave vote means and how to deal with it. Whichever way Parliament tries to address the people's mandate, there will be loud cries of unfairness from all sides, and each cry of foul could slow down or derail whatever mechanism is used to give effect to the Leave vote.
Britain deserves a factual, broadly focused, debate featuring a wide range of voices: the voices of scientists and green campaigners, small business people and historians, pensioner advocates and youth activists, MEPs who can talk about the work they do and bureaucrats and campaigners who've worked in Brussels who can explain how the EU actually works. That's not what we've had up until now. But it isn't too late.
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...
It is only by recognising the anachronistic nature of the EU that we can truly recognise how important this referendum is. Yes, I registered to vote because I'm young and therefore will be directly affected by its result. But fundamentally, I registered to vote because I recognise that breaking away from the EU is the necessary course for any nation that enshrines the value of democracy.
The UK government's Investigatory Powers Bill will be read for a third time in the House of Commons on Tuesday 7 June. Before that the House will consider a large number of amendments to the Bill at the Report stage for which, unusually, two days have been set aside, in recognition of the complexity of the legislation.
In search of his country's Tsarist roots, Vladimir Putin has steered Russia on a course towards unforgiving political authoritarianism, buttressed by state capitalism and legitimised by orthodox religiosity and patriotism.
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.
On the very same day that Mr Hammond was praising all these Bahraini reforms a court in Manama was jailing Sheikh 'Ali Salman, the leader of the country's main opposition party. He got nine years, with an earlier four-year jail sentence supplemented by a further half-decade by the Court of Appeal.
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 good news is that if you're not yet on the electoral register to vote in the referendum there's still time - just. You're cutting it fine, but there are still a few hours left to register. Talking to young people up and down the country over the last few weeks I've been struck by the number saying they just want to make sure they get the facts and 'get it right'. They're right to be taking this seriously. The outcome of this referendum will shape Britain's future in the 21st Century.
We need to live in harmony with our environment; we need to treat people with respect, affording them dignity and security in work, not simply treating them as economic units to be exploited. Let us celebrate the diversity of our world, seeing the commonality that connects us all as human beings. It is gratifying to see that more and more of our young are embracing these values. In the words of my grandson "I see myself as a citizen of the world"
Instead of insisting that 'we can control immigration inside the EU' (BBC), the Prime Minister needs to stop lying to us and be clear on what the government can and will actually do to reduce immigration (as the Conservatives were elected on a platform promising to reduce net migration to the 'tens of thousands').
