No matter what your view is on Brexit, it is important to listen to and respect the opinions of other people. As Brexit and the election of Trump showed, by not listening to one another unexpected political results are more likely to occur.  Too many leave voters are unwilling to listen to those who believe in EU membership and just brand them as ‘remoaners’, whilst many leave voters are wrongly branded as racist by remainers. Rather than being ignorant, we should listen and try to...

Yesterday, it was announced that university applications in the UK from EU citizens had fallen by 5%. Higher education in the UK is a key contributor to the economy, and a continued fall in applications is likely to harm it. The UK should make it as easy as possible for EU students to continue to study here. A key factor of this should be to continue to charge EU students at a lower rate than non-EU students. This shows us as Europeans and also sets a better tone when it comes to...

At airports, seaports etc. we should still continue to have separate aisles for EU passport holders.

Although it is not likely that this will be reciprocated the other way (e.g. British passports...

The immediate aim of the negotiations should be to protect the rights of current EU citizens in the UK, and EU citizens in the UK.

After basic and fair rights are sustained for citizens, the next aim of the negotiations should be other areas of cooperation, looking at a continued sharing of security and intelligence services. This would set a positive tone for the next...

A court that is representative of both the EU and UK (including people who believe in the exit from the EU) would be the fairest way to settle any disputes. It means that there is a non-bias among the court itself, and allows the settling of disputes to be independent. Leaving it to politicians will only lead to the risk of career politicians making decisions that they believe will benefit them personally.

The fairest financial settlement is for the UK to pay its maximum obligations to the EU, and for the maximum number of UK receipts to be calculated. This would mean that both the EU and UK are taking into account their full obligations and commitments. The EU would be able to show that it will take a tough approach to any other member states thinking of leaving the EU, whilst the UK would be able to maintain good relations with the EU.
