So what exactly are Corbyn's views on the EU? It's worth reminding ourselves, as even some passionate Corbyn supporters seem to have forgotten.

For vulnerable people like Leyla and Ahmed the road ahead is fraught with danger, and until refugees are provided with safe passage across borders the threat of violence or abuse will shadow them at every turn.

Women Need Tax Justice More Than Once a Month

Osborne must realise that genuine tax justice for women is not a once-a-month occurrence. It must cut across all tax and spend policies, universally, and help rather than hinder the fight for gender equality.

Enough of the Stats, I'll Be Voting to Stay in the EU on Principle

This is an amazing chance for everyone, from either side of the debate, to have a say and send a strong message, to not only Europe but the whole world, about what the British people value the most. So I will be voting to remain in the European Union this June. I hope you use your principles to guide you and do the same.

Panama Papers Reveal the Rotten Heart of the British Financial System

Our current system means we all get the politics that these users of tax havens pay for. It's now up to David Cameron to break with that unholy alliance - to announce an end to the secrecy regimes in all British-controlled territory, to use the summit he is hosting next month to demand matching action from other nations, and to say that the Tory Party will no longer accept money from donors who use tax havens in their business or personal affairs.

Why Britain Should Be Looking to Lead Europe, not Leave

Jude Kirton-Darling

I say a vote to stay in is a vote of confidence in our country and the great people that live in it. It is a vote to say that Europe can have a better future and at the head of that future will be a Union Jack. We should lead, not leave.

Young Death, Selfish Politics and Terror Strike the Heart of Europe

Aldwyn Cooper

In the last half of March 2016, three separate but interrelated events have served to heighten concerns about the European venture: The deaths of young people studying in Spain, the self-serving behaviour of some British politicians, and the horror of the recent terrorist attacks in Brussels.

It Will Take More Than Solidarity to Defeat This Terrorist Menace - We Need an Effective European Response

Guy Verhofstadt

Until now, we have been spared a major attack on Belgian soil. Sadly, the sickening events of 22 March abruptly changed that. Brussels now joins the growing list of European cities that have been targeted for mass casualty attacks: Madrid, London and Paris. But this week's slaughter wasn't just an attack on Belgium. Maalbeek metro station, where so many innocent men, women and children died, is a key transit hub for the European district. We now know at least 40 different nationalities were caught up in the attacks. This was a strike at the heart of Europe. More than ever, it's clear we are facing a European challenge.

The EU Referendum Is Not an Obvious Choice - Stop Pretending It Is

Ben Parr | Posted 21.03.2016 | UK Universities & Education
Ben Parr

The vast majority of students are expected to vote in favour of Britain remaining in the EU, and I am becoming increasingly uncomfortable with this fact. Why? Because I have no idea how I am going to vote, and I find it surprising that the demographic I belong to are already so sure of themselves.

The EU is a highly undemocratic organisation ratcheting more and more power with every passing day. It is impervious to public opinion. The people who matter in the law-making process are unelected and therefore unaccountable...

Why Leaving the EU Would Be Bad for British Science

Martin Rees | Posted 11.03.2016 | UK Tech
Martin Rees

It's not surprising that the scientific and technological community is overwhelmingly positive on this issue. Some of Europe's greatest technical successes - in particle physics and in aerospace, for instance - have required multinational collaboration. Such achievements show that Europe can fully match the US if its expertise is coordinated optimally. Bodies like CERN and the European Space Agency, for instance, are underpinned by international treaties: they aren't directly linked to the EU. However the EU has been an important 'facilitator' of collaboration across the whole range of 'wissenschaft'.

Why the EU Is Key to Embracing Asia's Growth

Whether we're in politics, diplomacy or business, we all know that risk and opportunity are two sides of the same coin. Some commentators are sounding the alarm about the Chinese economic slowdown, and the impact this might have on other economies in the region and further afield. This does not change the fundamental fact that Asia is now - and will remain - a major engine for global growth, and one with which we must continue to engage.

Winston Churchill, who let's remember was one of the first to have a vision of a united Europe, once reputedly said "if Britain should have to choose between Europe and the open sea, she should always choose the open sea". I get it. But we don't have to choose. Thanks to David Cameron we can stay in a reformed EU that works for us and help shape the future of our continent for the benefit of generations to come.

Compared to the Scottish Referendum, There Is Too Little Time to Transcend This Rigid EU Debate

Patrick Garratt | Posted 24.02.2016 | UK Universities & Education
Patrick Garratt

Instead of an expansive political vision of what Britain may look like either within or out of the European Union, the British public have been thrown into a debate, which although should transcend the petty politics of self-serving Conservative ministers, has nonetheless been obscured by it.
