I've seen relationships affected by the vote. I think it was natural in a way, it was a vote which directly impacted peoples lives and people on both became passionately involved. I understand why people became upset. That being said, a year down the line, feelings have cooled. A little time has brought a bit more perspective. At the end of the day, politics is politics and life is life. Most good friendships can last longer than political squabbles.

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.

Right now the government has proposed that all EU citizens who have lived in the UK for the last five years will have the right to stay in the UK.

The government needs to continue to work towards helping everyone within the UK flourish, as well as showing the rest of the world that...

The European Union (Withdrawal) Bill was announced today. While questions of how this bill will progress over the months, human rights group 'Equality and Human Rights Commission' have realized the bill is an opportunity to solidify human rights law in the UK. Since the bill wishes to absolve all EU law into the UK law, and then review these laws later to see if they should stay or go, this mean EU human rights principles will become part of UK law. While these laws can be reversed later,...

It is true that Gibraltar is a touchy subject at the moment, but I wish news outlets would stop using 'war' metaphors to describe the situation. It is easy to depict rising tensions between Spain and the UK as a potential battle between the two countries, but this image is misleading. In reality Gibraltar is more clear. Gibraltar has declared it will leave the EU along with Britain, the UK is willing to support Gibraltar, and Spain understands that Gibraltar belongs to the UK. Yes it is true...
