Saturday marks a milestone for the travel industry and for business people and holidaymakers alike. Mobile phone roaming charges are being slashed by almost three quarters. From 15 June 2017, there will be no roaming charges in Europe at all. And it's all thanks to the EU.
To leave the European Union now would be a golden opportunity missed - for Britain and for digital. Britain is by far the best positioned EU member to benefit most from the 500 million consumers the Digital Single Market gives access to, and our frontline techies know it.
The row about whether all schools should have to adopt academy status is an unwelcome distraction. You would have thought that the European referend...
Frank Field would do well to take a leaf out of Jeremy Corbyn's book. He should look at the EU of the 21st Century not the 1970s. Corbyn has changed his position, he has come around to the ideas that the Liberal Democrats have long been extolling. The current EU is good for the UK; not only that it's good for traditional Labour voters - something Corbyn has come to realise.
There are still eight weeks to go until the EU referendum, but we already find ourselves buried under an avalanche of claims and counter-claims of the...
This week, the man who lifted the lid on the cynical practices employed by large, profitable corporations to avoid paying taxes goes on trial. Through...
Come a few weeks time I, and many others, will be asked to trudge down to a local polling station to share an opinion on who we think should run London, followed by a vote on the EU. Many people across the country will vote on even more things, such as the Police and Crime Commissioner and council members. It's voting season.
The Tories and their media can be like a broken record in their questioning of Jeremy Corbyn's ability to lead the country. However, as David Cameron has already said he will not lead the Conservative Party for a third term, a more pressing question is which Tory is going to be able to take the reins from Cameron.
On Thursday 23rd June the people of Britain will vote on our membership of the European Union, an issue that will shape the future of our country more so than an any other issue. It has never been more important to make sure that you're registered to vote. I won't tell you how to vote but I will present the arguments to support staying in the European Union. I am of the opinion that the benefits far outweigh any perceived negatives.
Munching down fish and chips while enjoying a pint of Broadside is a must-do when visiting Southwold. Even if your face is more battered by the wind than your cod is by the fryer; and even if you're soggier from the rain than your chips are from the vinegar. In fact it all tends to add to the whole experience.
I've never liked his politics, but I've always thought Boris Johnson had a high level of native wit and no little intelligence. His attacks on Barack Obama's intervention in the Euro Referendum debate seem to suggest both have "gone south".
Whilst Brexit looms more ominously in the background, the next generation of data publishing is moving towards an ever-more collaborative and open place in which researchers can easily choose to make discoveries and data sets available across borders and cultures.
The Queen's 90th birthday week has produced a mixture of deferential reporting and, as can be expected for someone approaching a century, an opportunity to think about the times that she's reigned through - our current Elizabethan Age, as the cliché goes.
My new song genuinely came to me in a daydream, while I was trying to tune in my faulty DAB radio. I heard a snippet of news about this badly timed referendum* on staying or leaving the EU and suddenly it hit me hard how much I'd miss it if the UK, true to its tradition of recreational vandalism, managed inexplicably to kick itself out of this sophisticated European nightclub.
Technological change is happening fast. Very fast, actually. This week the European Commission presented a set of measures to support national initiatives for the digitisation of industry, public services and cybersecurity - and it will boost investment through strategic partnerships and networks.
Having spent time with women in these circumstances and felt a palpable sense of exactly how vulnerable they are, I am worried. Whatever side of the ship people are standing on it is essential to recognise the domino effect of policy change and where the last one falls it will hit the most vulnerable. Progress is giving the same rights and protection to everyone and leaving the EU could leave EU migrant women and their children destitute. This is gender discrimination and I'm sure you'll agree, is not a society we want to create.
