#zrodlo


By far, more of Britain’s exports and imports go to and come from the EU Single Market than any other area in the world. It’s our most important, most lucrative, most vital international market for transacting business, upon which our country’s wealth depends. Nearly half of our exports go to the EU Single Market, and […]

At times this week it’s been hard to tell whether the flapping sound one can hear is that of England trying to avoid the build-up of excessive expectations, or of hard Brexiters fanning the flames of their ire.* Since Friday’s Chequers meeting, numerous individuals have been working themselves up into states of apoplexy about things […]

Brexit is reversible

Every day Brexiters tell us Remainers that we are undermining democracy by campaigning to reverse Brexit. ‘Are you going to campaign until you get the result you want?’ they ask us, with disdain. ‘Yes,’ is our answer. ‘That’s how democracy works.’ Our aim is not to undermine democracy, but to use the democratic process to […]

It’s time to bury Brexit

The resignation of Brexit Secretary, David Davis, and other Cabinet members, shows that there is no real consensus on what Brexit means. There is a jagged oozing fissure right through the Conservative government and party, just as there is across the country, because Brexit is as enigmatic as ever. And if the politicians, and the […]

First published by UK in a Changing Europe, 27 June 2018 In the classic American musical, Guys and Dolls, the cast sang the praises of Nathan Detroit, the man who ran The Oldest Established Floating Crap Game in the City of New York.

The Conservative mode of making Brexit decisions

Perhaps the most infuriating questions to ask a young child is “what you do what to be, when you grow up?” Well, I found it infuriating, at least. The question supposed that you knew what the options might – did I even know that ‘social media pundit’* was a thing back then? – and that […]

Ten days after the win for Leave in the EU referendum, Remainers were in a state of shock. And we still are. On 3 July 2016, I published an article called, ‘What next?’ I wrote then: ‘Nobody knows what will happen next, not even those who so strongly campaigned for Brexit. ‘We now know they […]

Women’s long journey to win the right to vote

It was 90 years ago, on 2 July 1928, that women in Britain finally achieved equal voting rights with men. But it took almost 100 years of losing vote after vote before women won the right to vote. Every day Brexiters tell Remainers, ‘You lost the referendum. That’s the end of the matter. Give up! […]

The Strategic Use of Government-Sponsored Referendums in Contemporary Europe

The recent wave of government-sponsored referendums in Europe should be read in light of the upsurge of populist movements, argues Cecilia Sottilotta. Based on her recent article in JCER, she analyses the way in which the governments of Greece, Britain, Hungary and Italy strategically used referendums between 2015-2016, and debunks the political risk calculations.  Greece in […]

The reality of Brexit is now sinking in fast. But here’s the oddest thing. The UK government is negotiating to leave the EU, just so they can negotiate another arrangement with the EU to give us as much as possible of what we’ve already got, but on considerably inferior terms. If we don’t get what […]

Perhaps the least remarked aspect of this week’s Parliamentary shenanigans has been the distraction from the loss of another week of time to reach an Article 50 deal. Important as a meaningful vote in Parliament is, it does not intrinsically produce an increased chance of a deal being reached. Indeed, the confirmation of a push-back […]

The recently published Europe’s Brexit: EU Perspectives on Britain’s Vote to Leave concludes with several key themes about how the other 27 Member States and EU institutions approached and continue to handle Brexit. As should be more than clear to many by now, the story of Brexit cannot be told from a British perspective alone. Nor […]

With the pound so much lower following the Brexit vote, many more Britons are now holidaying at Britain’s seaside resorts. And it’s thanks to the EU that 95% of our beaches are now clean enough to wade out into the sea. It wasn’t always like that. Back in the 1970s, we used to pump our […]
