Mrs May: Acting against the national interest?

Published on by

Prime Minister Theresa May is determined to take Britain on a course to Brexit, but only six months ago she said it wouldn’t be in the country’s interest to do so. Mrs May, then Home Secretary, said in a pro-Remain speech in April 2016: “I believe it is clearly in our national interest to remain […]

It’s not undemocratic to challenge Brexit

Published on by

There is nothing else like it on the internet: the unique and growing portfolio of over 300 graphics and articles continuing to present the case every day for Britain to remain in the EU. I started the Reasons2Remain Facebook Community Campaign on Monday 4 April 2016. With a small team of supporters, for the following 11 […]

The Brexit Bodge: What they said

Published on by

  The EU referendum was only a week ago, and already the false claims and promises of ‘Leave’ campaigners are painfully unravelling. THEY SAID that outside the EU, Britain could control migration. This would relieve on public services. – BUT NOW they’re saying that leaving the EU can’t radically reduce migration and that fears about […]

100% sovereignty means Britain losing power

Published on by

The definition of sovereignty is ‘supreme power or authority’. Only one country in the world has that. North Korea. But whilst North Korea has cast iron sovereignty over its nation and people, in the outside world it has very little power, authority or influence. In the modern, rational, democratic world, countries recognise that sharing some […]

It’s their country they want back, not yours

Published on by

‘We want our country back!’ is the clarion cry of many who want Britain to leave the European Union. But whose country do they want back exactly? Your country? My country? Or really, just their country? Before we leave the European Union and possibly change our country forever, we need to have an idea what […]

The problem with Brexit

Published on by

A straightforward comparison between Britain remaining in the EU and leaving isn’t possible. That’s because we know what ‘Remain’ in the EU means – it’s the status quo and we’ve experienced it for four decades. But Leave? Nobody knows; nobody can say for sure. Even those campaigning for Britain to leave the European Union cannot […]

What they really want: End of the EU

Published on by

So now the truth is out. The ‘Leave’ campaign don’t just want Brexit – they want to see the end of the European Union. Justice Secretary, Michael Gove, said as much in his keynote speech this week for Vote Leave, the official campaign which he leads, fighting for Brexit in Britain’s EU referendum. Mr Gove […]

Boris Johnson’s big blunder

Published on by

The mayor of one of the world’s most pro EU capital cities has announced that he wants Britain to leave the European Union. Boris Johnson, MP and London’s Mayor, made his announcement after apparently agonising over the decision for hours and following the pleas of Prime Minister, David Cameron, for him not to abandon the […]

Facing facts about the EU referendum

Published on by

It’s often said that truth is the first casualty of war, and it seems that’s also the case with the way the EU referendum is going so far. Facts, stats and data are flying about all over the place from all sides, and it’s not surprising that many people are confused.

Wrong answers on BBC Question Time

Published on by

One of my biggest frustrations on watching BBC TV’s ‘Question Time’ is that when UKIP representatives make incorrect statements about the EU, there’s usually nobody on the panel or in the audience to correct them. Take last Thursday’s broadcast of Question Time. Among those appearing on the panel was UKIP MEP, Patrick O’Flynn, who made […]
