On hearing the Brexit result, my grandad texted me saying "Hopefully we'll find a way to fix things and make this OK". Like me he was shocked, disappointed and hurt that this was the choice made by such a significant proportion of Brits.
This Thursday, we will be voting either to stay in the EU or leave it and go it alone. Think carefully when making your decision as it will affect both your health care and your social care for decades to come.
I'm a scientist who studies memory errors. In particular, I study how people can come to believe they experienced things that never happened. I think that memory science can help us understand some of the starkly conflicting voices we are hearing in the Brexit debate.
Give us the facts. Give us warnings. But please-can we stop with the constant cloud hanging over our heads? If you believe some of the more extreme claims on both sides, depending on what we choose on June 23rd, it might be one of the last times we get to see the clouds, anyway.
The best thing for the country, in the aftermath of the referendum result, would be for the Tories to unite and show some true leadership-with someone who has proved he can lead at the helm. If a certain group of Conservatives choose to discount this in favour of pushing forward their own little agenda, then it is they, and not David Cameron, who will have proved themselves untrustworthy in this referendum.
I work as Chair of the Featured Artists Coalition, which has spawned the International Artist Organisation. Together we represent the rights and interests of European music artists and creators. The EU is currently working on the Digital Single market. This is essential to our future. It is the future. An artist's job is to break down barriers, tear down the walls that separate our shared humanity. We are intrinsically international. We have never thought of ourselves as being isolated from the rest of the world. Our innate desire is to bring people together, to create community and union. We are the modern day explorers and pioneers.
