As soon as the results were decisive, UK tech sector representatives kicked in with some excellent and collaborative thinking about what steps can be taken to mitigate some of the potential fall out. As you would expect from a sector peppered with entrepreneurs, there is a level of optimism and belief that there is opportunity even in turbulence, that I find inspiring.
A few days ago a friend explained how devastating and depressed he was about the Brexit decision and the long term consequences for the country. I reminded him of some of the challenges the country has faced and overcame.
Every child, no matter where they are born, has the right to a healthy start in life, the right to an education and the right to a safe, secure childhood. But around the world, millions of children are being denied these rights, for no other reason than the country, community, the gender or the circumstances into which they are born. We cannot and we must not let this huge injustice continue.
I stayed in a hotel in the center of the sleaze. One of the first things I noticed was a sign on my bathroom door warning me to not bring children into the room for sex. A sign that I guessed had no effect as each day I watched old men coming in and out of the hotel with girls who barely looked 18.
When you have a baby one of the many things you don't expect to use indefinitely is nappies. You look in to the not so distance future and envisage *the joys of* potty training and eventually a nappy-free life.
Cecil's death must not have been in vain.
Welcome back to my musings on the beautiful area of the Basque country in northern Spain. The long wait is finally over to hear all about "the most a...
There's no tournament on earth like Wimbledon and, after winning here three years ago, I'm looking forward to returning with the home advantage and the incredible support of my fans, and giving it my best shot. This year I'm proud to be wearing Malaria No More UK's logo on my sleeve. I've supported the charity's work to end malaria deaths for seven years now... In the fight against malaria, when funding has been reduced or stopped many countries have seen the disease return with a vengeance. We cannot afford to stand still or let any ground slip when so many lives and futures are at stake.
We won't be given a referendum on fracking, protecting badgers and hedgehogs, where our sewage outflow pipes should go, or whether a habitable climate is worth protecting. But democracy is not suspended. Now is the time that your voice is most urgently needed to protect the things you love which cannot speak for themselves.
Last month, a fisherman in Lesvos, Greece told me that there have always been refugees coming. The past 16 years, they've been coming. The big difference now is that women and children are coming too. With women refugees come new challenges, one of which is pregnancy.
Leaving the EU does not mean leaving our historic and international obligations to refugees. In fact I believe outside of the EU we can continue to take the lead in our compassionate response to refugees and provide more support in cooperation with our European and International partners. I look forward on Thursday to voting to Leave the EU for more control and more compassion for refugees.
Up to three million British jobs are linked to the UK's membership in the world's largest single market. It's a market of more than 500million consumers, offering unparalleled opportunities for investment and trade while guaranteeing openness, transparency and security. EU trading partners buy 44% of all British exports, more than 300,000 British businesses operate in other EU countries and it provides great support for thousands of start-ups each year. I have yet to hear a convincing reason why the UK should give that up.
During the EU referendum campaign I've spoken with a number of politicians and campaigners on both sides, particularly on the question of disability rights; as the chairman of the youth council at a national autism charity and an advocate for disability inclusion in the workplace, this is something I naturally care about.
With the right opportunities and the chance to learn, children like Ali will no longer be pressured to work - giving him and his family the hope they need to rebuild their lives, and potentially their country, if or when it is safe for them to return.
When World Refugee Day was first introduced by the United Nations in 2000, it was a rare opportunity to raise awareness of the huge challenges facing refugees fleeing from violence, food insecurity and drought - a much needed opportunity to encourage the media to shine a light on the human stories behind the statistics.
As we collectively navigate this crisis we must consider the cost of failing to act. Essa, Danika, and Maria are living proof of how our society benefits when refugees have the opportunity to learn, to work, and to give. Acting on behalf of refugees is not merely altruistic. In Danika's words, "By saving refugees, we are saving ourselves, our future, our morality, and our civilization."
