It's clear that there are still some serious questions still to the UK's Brexit position but I'd ask you to read the attached report by Swiss foreign policy think tank Foraus, who have identified a possible 'solution' to Brexit given the government's red lines.    They suggest a model based on the little known FIN-EFTA association whereby Finland had associate membership of EFTA back in 1961, a similar UK-EFTA association agreement would allow  restrictions  on freedom of movement as...

The UK leaving the EU will, eventually, radically change the political landscape, but the climate won’t sit by waiting for the Brexit-negotiations to finish. Today, August 2, marks ' Earth Overshoot Day ', which means that we’ve now used more resources than our planet can renew during a year. This day takes place almost five days earlier every year, but it's hardly something to celebrate, since it means that the resources used for the rest of 2017 are unsustainable . The UK has...

A big problem with Brexit is how much energy it takes up. Brexit's complexity is fairly obvious from all the news media, but all this white noise has drowned out the fact that while the Brexit negotiations continue life is continuing.  Our government's energy is focused on the massive Brexit task at hand, while there are many other issues take a back seat. The government needs to continue to work towards helping everyone within the UK flourish, as well as showing the rest of the world that...

I think we should continue to remain part of agencies such as Euratom because creating new versions will only create more and more unnecessary busy-work that gets in the way of actually getting anything worthwhile done. We already have the framework for cooperation so it seems crazy to let it go to waste.

I believe that if we want to imagine the best option for our common future, we should look at Norway. Even though it is not a member state, Norway boasts the closest relationship to the EU, being a member of the EFTA and the EEA. A deal delivering this kind of access to the single market would avoid undesirable economic consequences such as those would affect London's ability to sell financial services across Europe.

After Brexit, there should be a solid and close partnership between the UK and EU. This is important not only for potential financial and economic deals but also (and more importantly) for the many UK citizens across Europe and EU citizens in the UK. In this regard, the Brexit negotiations are key important also for shaping the future UK-EU relation.

Britain should not be punished, as it is very legitimate for the country to leave the EU. However, the rest of Europe is entitled to also want a brighter future once Britain exists the  Union. Europe should now get on with projects which Britain was blocking like a European army, and more political and economic integration. Europe needs to stop hiding, and become a strong world leader once and for all. For the EU to survive we need more EU, and this will ultimately be good for an...

Whatever happens, the democratic choice of the Scottish people to remain a part of the EU should be respected.  If Greenland left the EU and Denmark stayed in the EU, then why can't England leave the UK and Scotland stay in the EU? Either that or we need an Indy2 Ref.
