So it's gonna be June 23rd. The twitterati have inevitably focused on the clash with that annual celebration of yuppiedom - Glasto! More importantly t...
So here is a radical thought. Why don't the EU member states actually work together for once? Why not share the cost of processing them wherever they arrive and then offer a safe new place to live in any one of the 28 member nations based on existing population size.
Today we hope to see the completion of the prime minister's renegotiation package. This would make Britain even stronger in Europe and is something the country should get behind. When we do we will know what 'In' looks like... We will still be in the dark, however, on what 'Out' looks like.
The idea of a springtime in relations between Iran and the rest of the world is fanciful, a false spring no less. A new, slightly warmer relationship between London and Tehran might indeed lead to scheduled BA flights... but I'm unconvinced that anything fundamental has changed or is likely to do so.
To end this dispute, the prime minister, whose silence on this matter has been deafening, needs to recognise that sitting silently on the sidelines is no longer an option. His health secretary has become a hate figure for doctors, so it is up to David Cameron to lead from the top. Next, the government must come clean about the thousands of new staff required to provide a genuinely seven-day NHS. The public has a right to decide for itself whether it wishes to commit taxes to this manifesto aspiration.
Unfortunately, the people who want rid of the Hunting Act have friends in high places, and even this weekend we heard confirmation from a Conservative spokesperson that the Government pledge to repeal the Act remains on the table.
There is hope of real change. Some venues, notably the London Olympic Park, is now paying the London living wage of £9.70 an hour.
The gist among some already-weary progressives seems to be that Britain Stronger in Europe - the apparently monolithic representative of Europhiles - follows Cameron's renegotiations with either approval or complacence, while free movement, welfare and workers' rights are traded away.
In the end, bad deal or not, by opting to stay in the EU, voters actually know what they're getting. They will make a calculated decision on the basis of risk aversion. And voting to leave the EU, despite the wide reaches of its emotional pull, is just too far a journey into the unknown.
Mr Cameron and Mr Hunt - maybe it's time you took responsibility for this horrific mess. Turn to the NHS staff. Turn to the patients and relatives. Apologise, say you got it wrong and let's fix the most important thing this country has. You forget when the NHS is broken, it isn't just about headlines and careers, it's about lives. People are dying because of you. Time to stand up and face the music.
As both a patient and a medical student observing this junior doctor contract saga roll on, it looks like history is repeating itself. Hunt has repeatedly and unwaveringly misrepresented medical findings, and the results have been deeply concerning.
We're planning to stay here all day in protest at government plans to force fracking on communities across the country. Today we want to show David Cameron's government - this is what it feels like to have the shale gas industry pushed on you against your own will.
The arguments for a political system that's genuinely democratic, that produces a government reflecting the will of the people that encourages a more constructive, effective politics are overwhelmingly strong. Britain needs to do this. It needs to do it soon. That requires parties, campaigners - the people - to get together and demand the change. Today's one step in that process.
That the speech took place at all was much more important than what was in it - the policies announced are all fairly small-scale and will have little to no impact if pushed through without comprehensive sentencing reform.
Beware of big numbers. Thursday's London donor conference on Syria made all the right noises - they always do - but if past experience is anything to go by, the right noises rarely translate into ready cash.
Two weeks ago I sent the Prime Minister an open letter about the disgraceful retrospective hike in student loans. Those who started university since 2012 currently repay 9% of everything earned above £21,000 - this threshold was supposed to rise annually from 2017, but the Government has now frozen it.
