In the event of a 'Leave' vote, Britain would be divided, with a new Prime Minister, a surge in political awareness, and big questions to be answered about our future out of the EU. The only way for the country to move on from this divisive referendum, and grant democratic legitimacy to those negotiating Brexit, would be to hold a proportional general election as soon as possible after the result.
With the EU referendum now on the horizon, and polling data fluctuating wildly, it is vitally important that as many people as possible take the op...
AS one of the few political pundits who predicted the results of not just the Scottish referendum but also the last General Election, I find it astonishing how much credence is still given to the blizzard of referendum polls.
I've lived in the UK for 15 years - nearly all my adult life. I came here as an 18 year-old student because it was easier to study in my field of choice. I did not plan to stay. But I got used to multiculturalism, queuing, and apologising for everything. I got used to pubs, parks, self-deprecating jokes and endless varieties of tea. I fell in love with London, the only city I can now call home. So I stayed.
Stronger In have made the mistake of putting an entire generation of angry and disenchanted young voters into a box labelled "Remain Voters". That could be a big mistake... We're engaged in a different way, far from the prying eyes of pollsters and politicians. The EU referendum is being discussed in our private Facebook and Whatsapp group chats.
Whatever the outcome, entrepreneurial activity will continue to improve the lives of individuals and communities across the country. The government must put policies in place to ensure that our entrepreneurs continue to prosper - In or Out.
He has lost his credibility. He does not act in the best interests of Britain. That is simply not acceptable in a modern democratic society. Cameron must go as PM because he is operating a scorched earth policy against his own people.
I wasn't sure how to approach the news that 'Master of Lies' Jean-Claude Juncker has been drafted in by David 'Scourge of Pensioners' Cameron to make a major intervention in the referendum campaign next week. Why would the Prime Minister call in his boss, the President of the European Commission, a man with a less than exemplary reputation?
Cameron cannot be surprised that the anger of his victims is uncontrollable, and having unleashed it he is unable to point it where he wants. The furious won't be harnessed, but their jobs may disappear to the EU if they vote to leave.
Yesterday's 'shock poll' revealing that Leave has soared into a seven point lead over Remain was just that - a shock. The palpitations calmed somewhat...
If you're planning to vote remain, please take a moment to read this article. It may help you reconsider the most important political decision of your life. Most people I've spoken to say they're planning to vote leave, but of the few who say they'll vote remain, these have been the most common reasons...
It's far too early to tell if the latest opinion polls suggesting the people of Britain and that little bit of Ireland will vote Brexit next week. Pol...
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.
The constant bickering between and within the great Houses, led by the Brexiteers, could in the end result in the devastation of our economy to the massive detriment of everyday people, while the main characters continue to enjoy their extravagant lives.
The referendum vote will change British politics whatever the outcome. Putting to one side the longer-term ramifications of a potential Brexit and what it would mean for unpicking the relationship between the UK and the EU, neither Cameron or Corbyn will be sitting comfortably after the 23 June. So what are some of the potential outcomes that we should be prepared for?
The second category of treaty is one where there is mixed competence. These treaties are negotiated by the EU, but are then sent to each of the member parliaments for ratification. Any one nation state can prevent a mixed competence treaty from being ratified, effectively exercising a veto and killing the treaty on the floor of its national parliament. The treaty is then dead EU-wide.
