I'm not saying that leaving will mean that the UK becomes some kind of utopian nation overnight. But as long as faceless foreign bureaucrats with their self-appointed six-figure salaries have a say in how our country is run, I cannot have confidence that we can achieve our full potential as a nation.
So that's it. Mr Cameron's renegotiation of our EU membership is all but complete. And one thing is clear. There will be no reform. Our PM has returned from Brussels with 75% of what he was asking for. A good effort - if not for the fact he was asking for almost nothing in the first place.
They were bound to have a go, sooner or later. The campaign to stay in the European Union has resorted to fear and scaremongering on almost everything else, and in my experience there are a lot of staunchly anti-EU football fans, so a 'Brexit would hurt football' follows as surely as the playoffs follow the regular season.
With the referendum imminent, there are countless questions yet to be answered. However, with time running it will be crucial for the British public to receive enough information, which does not yet seem to be happening. The cards are in Cameron's hands, but it is whether or not he will leave enough time for campaigning which is the real question.
For those who've never been involved in the struggles that led us to where we are today, it's never too late. It might not always be obvious, but to repeat what Stonewall keeps saying - because ultimately they are right - there's still work to do.
Barely a month goes by without me hearing Labour politicians utter the same old discredited chestnut about how 'if we leave the EU, we might end up with tariffs being imposed on car exports'. I think it's time we shot that one down in flames.
You might conclude from this article that I'm a closet Little 'Englander, but I firmly believe that I'm a little 'Europer. So vote leave, protect roast dinners, French toast, Belgian chocolate and Danish pastries.
The case for the European Union is wafer-thin. It collapses almost immediately on closer examination. And don't forget, there are some brave Labour MPs - like Kate Hoey, Khalid Mahmood, Frank Field, Graham Stringer, Ronnie Campbell and Kelvin Hopkins - who recognise that the EU is against the interests of the Left wing of British politics as well as the Right. Fortunately, Jude Kirton-Darling's views are not universal in the Labour Party!
We're living in a technology-driven world. Calculations can be done in an instant; you no longer even need to reach for your calculator. A tablet, ipad, laptop or mobile telephone will almost certainly have a calculator function - you're never far away from something that will help you to deal with basic arithmetic if you can't do it for yourself...
Four minutes and 15 seconds was the length of the Prime Minister's pre-recorded New Year message. It was released onto the BBC website just sixteen s...
Jeremy Corbyn will still be leader of the Labour party and will be more popular (within his party) than ever. He'll try to move more mainstream and will do what he can to pull in moderate MPs to work with him, but his electorate will resist him and ultimately, he'll fail because it's not what his supporters want. While he gets safer...
Of course if Farage really wanted his critics to "put up or shut up" he should emulate another party leader who used those words - John Major in 1995. In an attempt to face down those constantly sniping at him, Major called a leadership election, which he won. Of course, if Farage had done the same thing in May instead of 'unresigning', he would not be in this position.
The real question here is: will anything change? Somehow, I think not. Farage will maintain control over a party that is shrinking and, very, very slowly, falling apart. We've seen that he is not prepared to let the power he holds over the small group of people he surrounds himself with go.
It is time to stand together: Muslim and non-Muslim, black and white, young and old. It is time to unite against the fanatics and the bigots. They want to turn us against each other, so our response - our only response - must be to come together.
What's wrong with us? Let's get a grip, stop appeasing terrorists, stop missing the point and misleading, stop blaming all Muslims for the actions of a tiny minority and actually develop a plan to deal with the ISIS threat to our way of life.
Oh, Oldham West. Poor, poor Oldham West. By the time you read this article, we might already know the results of Thursday's by-election. I'm already t...
