The UK still seems to think that it has the upper hand in matters. The British government's belief in its own exceptionalism and exclusivity has gone a bit too far even the EU is appalled at the fact that the UK still thinks it has negotiating powers after making a blunder out of their relationship and a fool out of themselves. I find it ludicrous that the UK thought they could retain a British in the ECJ by retaining Luxembourg the role to protect citizens' rights in the UK. I mean, why...

Both sides should try their best to come to an amicable agreement on the costs involved in the UK leaving the EU whilst keeping in mind the close relationship the regions may share in the future. This may include the EU subsidising some of the "divorce" settlement if the UK continues to work on projects which benefits both regions, such as those concerning technology and healthcare.

The question of how much the UK has become so emotionally charged that effective decision making is looking unlikely due to the unpopularity that would come with it.

It seems that the main issues that have been identified as reasons for voting to leave the EU were concerns about mass immigration; about the amount of money the UK was paying to the EU; and a loss of sovereignty over UK laws. This means that when deciding which projects to continue funding and working on, we must not violate any of these concerns. However, these are not concrete. We need to have more voices telling us why they voted to leave, or which institutions they think it would be...

Having passed the 6 months anniversary since Brexit negotiation began and the 5th round of negotiations seeing only  "technical progress" being made on citizen's rights, the likelihood of the UK being free from its partner of 44 years, the EU by May 2019 seem to get slimmer by the day. One of the main, if not the main reason behind the slow progress is the divorce bill. With the EU Commission seeking a €60bn divorce bill, while other estimates ranging from €27bn-€75bn, who should pay for...

Britain has voted to leave the European Union, be that as it may, cooperation between the Union and the UK can still happen. People did not vote for an end of relations and projects, only for a divorce with the EU. The United Kingdom takes advantage of many of the European projects, a wonderful example is the Erasmus program, giving students the opportunity to study overseas. Many projects have been very successful, for instance the European Regional Development Fund ( ERDF ). Such...

With article 50 envoked there are some serious questions to be asked about farm subsidies. These subsidies are provided by the EU, contriting to farmers annual invoke and investments in their farm. The potential of loosing these subsidies will have a direct impact on these farmers live and their farming abilities. The government need to ensure they continue supporting this key sector within the UK.

Unfortunately the UK should to pay up, in order to minimize for potential fall out with the EU. Beyond this the negotiations can't really proceed on to a final stage of divorce without the UK paying money it owes back to the EU. Maybe they should get going with the payment plan sooner rather then later to get it over with? Or take their sweet time, and make the process a long winded one, so negotiations go on for longer and EU nationals manage to get to the 5 year mark for permanent residency!

Scientific information, its technologies, and research principles should not be divided post-Brexit. Last year, the opening of the Francis Crick Institute demonstrated the significant advantages of working across borders to develop research that is beneficial to all. As the biggest single biomedical laboratory in Europe, the Institute has discovered mutations in cancer and the immune system and developed new methods to fight malaria amongst many of its great achievement, all of which would...

Right now, the EU is planning to spend €6 million a year on a swanky new 'House of Europe' in the centre of Paris – plus €12 million making the place more plush for EU officials. Jean Arthuis, a French liberal MEP has said that this "won’t solve the issue of how we get citizens closer to the EU.” Of course it won't - it'll end up being a cocktail club for eurocrats.  How can the EU justify this when there are millions living in poverty in Greece thanks in part to the EU pushing an...
