Madrid has it all, but it never forgets to show its visitors a friendly face, no matter the size of their wallets. If you're hungering for a city that actually sees some sunlight every once in a while, or if you're looking for stops on your cross-continental summer rampage, or if you're feeling a a bit priced out of Barcelona, or for any other reason, really, come here and you will find Madrid welcoming you with open arms.
This issue will affect all of us in this proud nation of ours, and millions of people around the world are watching to see what we do. The dizzying array of sums of money passing between the British and EU economy - in both directions it would seem - have left me rather confused. The claims and counter-claims of immigration have left me uncomfortable. Here's the truth. Immigration will continue to be a challenge, whether we remain or stay in the EU. In a more mobile, better connected world, the migration of human beings in - both directions - is only going to increase.
Although some countries have legislated against discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation in goods and services, this isn't universal across member's states. That's why it is important for UK influence to remain at the heart of the single market, to facilitate further anti-discrimination measures. It makes no sense for LGBT people to have protection at home, but subject to discrimination elsewhere in the single market. Retreating with a Brexit vote isn't going to change that unsatisfactory position.
I'm not entirely sure if Vice are winding us up or not. Regardless, though, I'm grateful the post is up. Because this just proves that the only response the Remain campaign seem to have for our optimistic vision of Britain is ignorant stereotyping and vicious personal insult. Doesn't bode well, does it?
Facts matter in this referendum. Yet politics has always been about feelings and emotion as much as statistics and experience. Why else, for instance, would anti-immigrant sentiment often be highest in those areas with the lowest number of migrants and fly in the face of most, if not all, of the expert studies that have looked at the economic impact of immigration?
I wasn't sure how to approach the news that 'Master of Lies' Jean-Claude Juncker has been drafted in by David 'Scourge of Pensioners' Cameron to make a major intervention in the referendum campaign next week. Why would the Prime Minister call in his boss, the President of the European Commission, a man with a less than exemplary reputation?
The fact is, I need the EU to keep my government in check, I need the EU to control the financial sector that is tearing Britain into unequal chunks of extreme wealth and poverty, but most of all, I need the EU so the British government does not continue to benefit for my generations political apathy, implementing laws that take advantage of our alienation.
If you're planning to vote remain, please take a moment to read this article. It may help you reconsider the most important political decision of your life. Most people I've spoken to say they're planning to vote leave, but of the few who say they'll vote remain, these have been the most common reasons...
Feeling confused? With the EU referendum less than a month away, I'd hardly blame you after all the misinformation of the last few weeks. As a business person who isn't in politics but has been campaigning to keep Britain in the EU I've been shocked at just how much rubbish is being spoken in this debate.
The second category of treaty is one where there is mixed competence. These treaties are negotiated by the EU, but are then sent to each of the member parliaments for ratification. Any one nation state can prevent a mixed competence treaty from being ratified, effectively exercising a veto and killing the treaty on the floor of its national parliament. The treaty is then dead EU-wide.
The United Kingdom is the fifth biggest economy in the world, the eighth biggest manufacturer. Our universities, judicial system, culture, and our historic values of equality and human rights are the envy of the world. None of this is dependent on being in a Cold War-era trade bloc, and it certainly isn't dependent on the abdication of our decision-making to an undemocratic political union.
Let's ignore the lies and nonsense about Turkey and about there being a magic pot of money left over after Brexit; let's reject the scapegoating of those who boost our economy: let's vote decisively to Remain and let's consign the far-right of the Conservative Party and UKIP, the country's lunatic fringe, to the dustbin of history where they belong.
