Withdrawal negotiations will be taking place into 2018 which will make things a lot more clear in terms of the exact implications of what will come when the UK ceases to be a member of the EU and is no longer subject to its treaties.

The War Has Begun - Choose Your Weapon Wisely

A lot has changed in two years and Theresa May has said it herself, the biggest threat to pursuing a hard Brexit is a coalition of these MPs. The battle front has significantly changed since 2015 and it's time the tactics of young people reflected just that. My weapon of choice? As a moderate Labour supporter, I hope to be campaigning for some great Birmingham Labour MPs who have worked tirelessly for their constituents over the last two years and will continue to hold the next government to account on Brexit.

Perhaps with some of the points made above there is some hope that Britain can get the flexibility it wants while still having as much integration as would benefit it and reduce some of the harm a cold, hard Brexit would cause.

Following Brexit and Trump's victory in the US, many feared Europe would fall prey to Eurosceptic, nationalist, and protectionist populists. The coming French elections should be regarded as the most important populist test and the defining European political battle this year.

Trump's Assault On Climate Change Is Capitalism At Its Worst: Civil Society Must Resist

Ewan Somerville

The beast of capitalism has slid under most noses for too long, but now it is exhibited within the White House for all to see. Trump and his team are not 'maniacs', the world has not 'gone mad'. No these people know exactly what they are doing, and they love such escapist labels. It is precisely us, civil society, that must stop them in their tracks with this loud and clear message: you may have ruled the world until now, but no longer.

The Dutch Election Was The Latest Chapter In The Death Of European Social Democracy

Ben Cullimore | Posted 16.03.2017 | UK Universities & Education
Ben Cullimore

Central European social democratic parties haven't been so lucky, however, and PvdA's dismal defeat shows the grim future facing the centre-left in multi-party systems. With PvdA set to spend the next parliamentary term away from the action on the backbenches and the French Socialist Party likely to suffer a similar fate in the upcoming presidential and legislative elections, social democracy has collapsed into a deep hole from which it may never be able to escape.

The Euro Will Collapse Soon, Let Us Hope It Is Orderly

Diane James MEP | Posted 14.03.2017 | UK Politics
Diane James MEP

Can the Euro collapse? It is my opinion that it is inevitable that the single currency will break apart. This is not any Eurosceptic wishful thinking, nor do I relish the havoc that this would cause. I do believe, however, that the internal pressures within the Euro are unsolvable and this will lead to its collapse. And it is all down to the bond market.

The indisputable future impact of Brexit on the Scottish economy - on investment, jobs, and on Scottish society - cannot simply be wished away in obeisance to an EU referendum result that has only succeeded in kicking over a constitutional hornet's nest.
