When we decide on how to vote, on whether to leave or remain, let us be bound not just by the economic implications of our choice, nor only by fears about immigration, but let us consider the statement we are making to our neighbours and the impact it could have on our relationships with them. And let us send a message to the continent and wider world that we extrawursts are proud to be Europeans, too.
Unsurprisingly, we must look to Silicon Valley for the new, cutting-edge innovation. Or more precisely, to the hills overlooking the bay, which are home to San Quentin, California's oldest prison. To put San Quentin in a UK justice context, it would be a category A prison - it's home to 699 death row inmates.
It is clear that Boris Johnson has caused a storm in ignoring the PM and advocating Brexit; however, regardless of motivation, I am in support of the concept of taking a leap of faith and giving Britain the chance to negotiate its own independence and economic growth, instead of bowing down to pass on decisions to another party.
I feel the need to blame someone for the EU referendum imbroglio, so I'm going to blame Margaret Thatcher. She injected a poison into the Conservative party, and it has now spread to infect the entire body politic.
This new deal marks a clear break with the past, and real change to our membership of the EU. For the first time it is clear in law that we will never be part of economic and political union. Other countries may advance in that direction if they want to, but they can't take Britain with them, or discriminate against us if we refuse to follow.
The Conservatives' immigration policy is a disaster. But Cameron persists in using dehumanising language about immigrants. The government continues treating people who deserve to be allowed to stay in the UK like dirt. Do they seriously think the British people won't see through their squalid actions? Have they no shame?
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.
