Reject Theresa May’s bad Brexit deal because it fails to protect jobs and living standards, workers’ rights and environmental standards – or provide sufficient guarantees on national security Prevent the chaos of the UK crashing out of the EU without a deal Keep all options on the table to protect the UK from a no deal scenario, with a general election as the best outcome for the country

A social policy that the UK must continue to support regardless of the progress made on Brexit deals is Erasmus, the European Union student exchange program (cont.)

Majorities of the population in each of the nations in the United Kingdom identify primarily as English, Welsh, Scottish or Northern Irish first before recognizing their British identity. The 2011 census showed that 70% of the people of England ticked the “English” box but the vast majority of them did not also tick the “British” box, even though they were able to tick more than one. This case was much more likelier with white people than non-whites meaning that multiculturalism may have...

The proliferation of unsubstantiated claims and misinformation stemming from Brexit is no surprise. Many people will skew the truth in order to get their point across so that they can achieve the political goals that they would like to see to fruition. While some people may believe that we live in a post-truth society, I think misinformation has been part of the human culture for centuries. In the past in America, yellow journalism and smear campaigns were rampant during elections. They...

This interesting video ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWGMvmAlIvA ) discusses showcases varying viewpoints on the younger generation and how they feel about the British identity. Here are some quotes from the video: “Collective of countries together working together. We’re independent as countries but we work well together” “I’m Welsh, so to me it is like a collective identity. It’s nice that all of us being part of the UK is something that we can feel together as well as be...

While the Barnet case study is certainly important and interesting, I believe many will benefit from reading the other 4 case studies done in the similar format that has been done with Barnet. LSE presents reports on Ceredigion, Pendle, Southampton, as well as Mansfield, and they all show negative effects coming off of Brexit at the local level as well. These studies may also be more interesting because they are outside of London. Some of the negative effects include: decrease in direct...

According to police reports on hate crime in Britain, the number of hate crimes have increased by a shocking 123% since 2012, and records have noted “spikes in hate crime following certain events such as the EU referendum and the terrorist attacks in 2017” (Weaver, first link). This leads me to believe that Brexit has made minority groups feel uncomfortable if the referendum spiked hate crimes, especially when 76% of the hate crimes involved race. The increase in hate crimes is partially...

An LSE study has recently found that British citizens favor EU migrants over non-EU migrants. The influx of foreign citizens has undoubtedly created some extent of xenophobia in Britain; however, if the British favor EU migrants, then perhaps policymakers can frame immigration policies close to those of the EU.

Reading the LSE study is a MUST. Perhaps residents of the UK will be able to better understand the impacts of Brexit if they were able to understand how the policy will affect their local economy and town. Barnet faces a lot of economic turmoil in the wake of Brexit. The primary effects of Brexit have already been felt in the NHS services in Barnet with the clear absence of nurses. “The number of applications to join the UK’s nursing register dropped by 92% between May 2016 and May 2017,”...

One way that Britain seems to be ensuring multicultural values is through their settled/pre-settled policy. While Britain could become more populist and exclusive towards other nations outside the EU, I fail to see the actual consequences towards EU citizens post-Brexit. Any EU citizen is eligible for settled/pre-settled status, which does not curb immigration. A settled status will grant EU nationals and their families who have spent five years in the UK the same rights as British citizens...

The first treaty in the EU that even mentioned gay rights came from the Treaty of Amsterdam in 1999. On Page 26 of the treaty, there is a mention to “combat discrimination based on sex, racial or ethnic origin… or sexual orientation,” but this only refers on a ban for anti-gay laws in employment. The LGBT+ community, in many parts of the EU, remains largely unprotected from medical treatment to protection from homophobic bullying. The fact that half of the member states in the EU still have...
