Let's Hear About the Dream of Europe

Much of the political talk this past week has been of UKIP's ineptitude. The resignation that never was has now been followed by the sacking that never was, with Suzanne Evans unceremoniously dumped and inelegantly reinstated as a party spokesperson for the European separatists in the space of mere hours.

Is the Greek Crisis a Gift to British Eurosceptics?

For the Eurosceptic campaign, the Eurozone could be characterised as the next coalition of chaos, appearing messy and undemocratic. Cameron has been warned the referendum may turn into his version of the Maastricht Treaty, destroying his authority within his party.

Britain Should Deliberate Before It Votes on Europe

With the EU referendum bill racing through parliament, it is not too late to rethink fundamentals. Voters should not make their epochal decision on the basis of sound-bites and twitter-feeds. They should instead be given a day off from work to engage in a National Day of Deliberation on the basic issues at stake.

Following today's announcement, UKIP has become even more closely linked to the fascist bloc in EU Parliament by way of MEPs from Poland's Congress of the New Right party, whose members now sit both in Farage's EFDD group and the new Europe of Nations and Freedoms.

TTIP Debate - What a Farce

Ukip believes that TTIP and all trade agreements made on behalf of the UK should be signed by the UK government and ratified by the UK parliament alone. It is important to recognise that the European Union's interests are not necessarily synonymous with the UK interests.

Why a Vote to Leave the EU Would Be a Bad Thing for UK Science

Sam Crossman | Posted 09.06.2015 | UK Tech
Sam Crossman

Science is unlikely to garner much mainstream media coverage in the lead up to the vote, making initiatives such as Scientists for EU all the more important. EU membership greatly benefits science in the UK and it is vital that the wider public is made aware of this, before it is too late.

On My Ship If You Don't Follow Orders You Walk The Plank & David Cameron Is Right To Demand the Same Loyalty!

David Cameron is completely correct in laying down the law to members of his cabinet and other ministers, when it comes to them following orders and not campaigning for a UK exit from Europe.

What I Learned When I Became the Katie Hopkins of the Liberal Pro-EU Left (For a Day)

So far, so fun and games. No threats or violent language or anything. A light day at the office, really, for any aspiring Katie Hopkins of the liberal, pro-EU left. But on a more serious note, here are some interesting considerations that seem to me to emerge from the strength of the reaction and the nature of the criticism.

Dear Labour Party, The past three weeks have not been happy ones. As a previous life-long supporter of the party who voted Conservative for the first time on May 7th, I hope the following to-do list is constructive. A strong Labour party is vital to an effective, healthy democracy and to ensuring that the Conservatives deliver on their election promises. So here are five next steps:

Did the Conservatives Really Win the General Election?

Since the Conservative party "won" the UK general election on May 7th, people have taken to the streets across the UK in a defiant display of disenchantment with the electoral system and the austerity consensus of the major political parties. The prospect of 5 more years of crippling austerity has prompted many to reclaim the future of UK politics.

Europe: 'Non or Innit'?

Darren Hall | Posted 22.05.2015 | UK Politics

Yesterday, I asked my parents how they would vote in the EU referendum. Bearing in mind they were one foot out the door to go camping in France, I was somewhat taken aback by their ambivalence towards our membership. If they are in any way representative of the general ignorance about Brussels, Europhiles have a much bigger hill to climb than many would like to think.

The Truth About Europe: We're Better In Than Out

On Thursday 7th May the UK faces a stark political choice. A choice between a Conservative Government intent on withdrawing from the world, or an outward-looking Labour Government invested in shaping a prosperous and fair Britain that is at ease with itself on the world stage. The biggest threat to our future is not Europe, it comes from within.

The Myth of Immigration as an Election Issue

Scenarios must be in place to ensure integration is successful and immigration is efficient and responsible, to ensure the spreading of skills across a populace instead of a concentration. What good is a United Kingdom, if the people, it's most important resource, are not being shared?

A Tale of Two Cities: Amsterdam and Berlin

If being around really tall people is your kind of thing, go to Holland. The average man is 6'3". And that's without clogs on. As well as clogs, several other C-words can be ascribed to the Netherlands' capital city: canals, coffee shops and culture, for instance; all of which Amsterdam has in abundance.
