The UK has to recognise the special relationship it has, and to some extent still will have, with the EU. Creating a rigid border between the UK and the EU is a) impossible b) will have a negative impact on labour supply, quality of education and convenience of movement. Therefore, there’s a pressing need to maintain some agreements already in place, such as freedom of movement for educational purposes. Also, the UK should continue using the international resources such as national databases...

We don't have to surrender Freedom of Movement when we leave the EU. To do so would be a severe blow to workers' rights and the principle that migrant labour is beneficial to the UK Economy. What if we could provide freedom of movement on the terms of labour and not capital? If we can get nations to unite over regulations such as corporation tax then we could prevent private companies running off to exploit cheaper labour or lower tax rates. In this way, labour would no longer be obligated...

Of all the talks about what Britain's borders need to look like after exiting the EU the most important issue that doesn't always get the most coverage in the media is what will happen with the border between Northern Ireland and Ireland. Being the only actual open border between the United Kingdom and an EU country it should really be taken centre stage in the debate on borders. With the recent rising tensions and talks of secession or reunification in Northern Ireland after their vote was...

Nice thought

Terrorism and the threat of more attacks will inevitably be a very important topic in the debate on BREXIT with the recent events both in the UK and Europe as a whole but it is important for all those involved to recognize that border security is not an issue related to it. For the most part all of the attacks in Europe have been perpetrated by citizens or residents who had already been living in the country before being radicalized. Fighting terrorism is going to be a very important issue...
