The Chancellor Forgot This Huge Brexit Promise In His Speech

Benjamin Butterworth | Posted 03.10.2016 | UK Politics
Benjamin Butterworth

Maybe it slipped the Chancellor's mind. He must have a lot to think about right about now. The long-term downward trend predictions for the British economy; the volatile dip in jobs and investment seen in July; the seven week low in the value of sterling today. Not an easy in-tray. But, in case he has forgotten, a few months ago some bold spending promises were made.

Why Women Are Just Not Into the EU

Jade Smith | Posted 13.06.2016 | UK Universities & Education
Jade Smith

We as a country are perfectly capable of advocating women's rights without help from anyone else, especially overpaid Eurocrats. We must lobby the MPs in power, stand up for what we believe in and always vote. Voting to leave the European Union is the safest choice for women.

Will Straw

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 EU's Status as Europe's Peacekeeper Is an Insulting Myth

Oliver Norgrove | Posted 15.02.2016 | UK Universities & Education
Oliver Norgrove

Achieving ever-closer-union, as it foreshadowed, has been the driving force behind the gradual (and often forceful) assimilation of law, currency and culture across the European continent. To many, it seemed a wonderful way of enhancing international cooperation, and promoting both peace and unity.

Paul Embery | Posted 09.02.2016 | UK Politics

Many union leaders favour staying in. But the wider movement is far from united on the question. Two unions have already endorsed a 'leave' vote, and a sizeable number of rank-and-file trade unionists want out.

Whatever You Do, Don't Mention the Euro

There is nothing new in saying that if the Eurozone is to succeed its members will have to surrender more financial independence. Everyone knows that. Until they do, however, its future will remain uncertain and those who invest in it will be taking a gamble. So, for the time being "chips", I think, will have to do.

What Is Europe Without Greece?

One thing is clear, that Alexis Tspiras must stand firm in sweeping waters and against the rising tide. Historians will often say that European man is Greek in provenance. As citizens of Europe we know that Syriza is making decisions in constrained space and time, and that they should be proud -- whatever the outcome -- that they have sought to represent a demographic that extends beyond Greece and touches the heart of Europe.

Europe: More Than Fraying at the Edges

The EU is teetering on the brink of Grexit as the two sides continue to play a momentous game of chicken. On Sunday, Greeks will be voting in their referendum on whether or not to accept the conditions the EU and IMF have put on giving the country another bailout - and the polls are so finely balanced it's too close to call.
