The series of events in Post-referendum Britain will be shifting at a radical pace, once Article 50 is invoked. Britain will be set to negotiate a new deal with the EU, in which it must complete the official terms of its divorce and attain a new agreement with the European Union. Evidently now, with the two sides taking polarized propositions for the deal, complex negotiations could be treated acrimoniously and perilously.
Peace in Cyprus, has the opportunity to show the world that there is another way. We don't always have to point fingers and seek out a scapegoat. Even where there is little hope, and after 42 years, many Cypriots had lost hope, with determination and drive, anything is possible. I wish the leaders and those involved in the final stages of these peace talks endless luck. If they are successful, it will not only mean a great deal to my family and fellow Cypriots, it will also mean a lot to a world that at times feels like it has lost all hope.
IMMIGRATION was and is a big issue in the Leave campaign. I have been reminding everyone for a long time that even within existing EU rules the UK ha...
Few things have corroded the relationship between working-class people on the one hand and their leaders in the Labour party and trade union movement on the other than the obstinate refusal of those leaders to treat concerns over unlimited immigration with the legitimacy they deserve, and to instead resort to boilerplate and patronising slogans.
People detained administratively and indefinitely occupy a dark corner of this nation. Shining a light on their desperate plight is more important than ever. The time has come for our Prime Minister to be held accountable for presiding over countless human rights abuses in detention centres while she was Home Secretary - and to put an end to the cruelly indefinite detention regime that we have in this country. Unlike the rest of Europe, our Government does not put a time limit on immigration detention. Alternatives to detention have proved successful in countries like Sweden and Belgium, but the UK continues to routinely and indefinitely strip people of their liberty for administrative convenience.
After a chaotic week of school holidays, I am hastily dumped at the train station. I have to go to Bristol to take the IELTS - The International English Language Test. My partner has been offered a job in Toronto, and we both need to fulfill the Canadian visa requirements.
Casting our minds back to 24 June, it was hard to ignore the split between London and the rest of the country for Brexit. With 59% of London's population voting to remain, this in turn triggered calls from members of the public and some business figures for London to declare itself a separate "state" to the rest of the UK.
The words of the Indian journalist should haunt Theresa May: "You want our business but you do not want our people". The EU is clearly not the only place where this UK perspective is going down rather badly.
In the last year, Brexit and Donald Trump's election victory have made it very clear that people both in the UK and US are angry and frustrated at the politicians who have served us of late. In recent years trust towards our elected representatives has sunk lower and lower, so can it really come as a surprise that a majority of people are now voting against the status quo?
The first 100 days will be key to figuring an image of a Trump White House, parallel to the Trump Administration lineup of secretaries and advisors. The road to the four years ahead will be very new and sensitive. Many polls, analysts and critics are questioning their evaluations of these elections. Eyes are now on Trump and how he will act based on the policies he pledged.
The Daily Mail seems to be doing it's usual bit towards xenophobia and racial hatred in the UK. As has been reported - the printed Daily Mail yeste...
Theresa May's government needs to work with the HE sector to decouple international students from the question of immigration. It should also listen to the British public and recognise that international students are very valuable, temporary visitors who make an enormous economic and cultural contribution to the UK.
The United States of America is a vast country. It is inhabited by over three hundred million people and it's arguably the most diverse country on ear...
It is a quirk of democracy that the achievement of power often diminishes your ability to speak freely. Luckily I am neither famous nor dependent on the votes of those who disagree with me, and so I can say what Gordon Brown could not...
When Amber Rudd recently announced that she would be continuing the purge of international students started by Theresa May, my heart sank. Brexit has already damaged universities and their ability to attract students and staff... To continue to include students in immigration targets would be to pursue an economically damaging, right wing ideology, based on dodgy evidence, against expert advice and without a mandate. Surely Brexit has enough of that already?
We know that some opinions will never be changed, but we also know that there are millions of people who are shocked and disturbed by the divisive and dangerous politics, and we urge them to join us on February 20 and make One Day Without Us a day to remember.
