At the time of writing, it has been exactly 3 months and 5 days since the UK voted to leave the European Union. And in that time our previous Prime Minister stepped down to be replaced by a new (and unelected) individual, who went on to appoint the weakest government in recent history, to try to navigate one of the most complex constitutional changes of all time. It has also come to light that we will have to hire constitutional lawyers from mainland Europe to help us through this process, as ours are grossly under experienced (the irony would be hilarious if it weren't so terrifying) for £5000 a day, and that President Obama and President Abe stated that the UK would be “at the back of the line for trade negotiations” post Brexit and that Japanese firms would likely move their European HQs out of Britain post Brexit, respectively.
Despite this, our glorious leader has not given any further information on what path we will take during the upcoming negotiations, other than the odd non-statement that even the most esoteric of buddhist monks would be perplexed by. The most likely reason for this is that she doesn't actually know what to do. I don't think anyone does - other than the likes of Hannan and Farage of course, who feel it would be best to just trade under WTO rules and “get on with it” (a concrete plan if ever there's been one) - which is probably the key reason why no one actually planned for the catastrophic mess we are currently in.Read more

On the Parliament website it states "You should always contact your local MP first to raise an issue at Parliament. However, if your campaign is of general or national importance, you could also contact other MPs who may be interested in supporting you."Read more
We all know the saying “when the going gets tough, the tough get going”.
It was in this spirit that, having taken in the tone of both the official campaigns, everyday people on both sides of the argument took to the streets of their neighbourhoods to convince their fellow citizens of how they should vote on June 23rd.
On June 24th however, one side of the argument was busy celebrating their victory, while the other side was left worrying about their future, that of the generations to come, the political stability of their continent and their national identity.
As the social, economic and political shockwaves started to settle over a very much divided United Kingdom, each day that passed set a new political precedent. Ultimately, the pursuit of the control that this nation so marginally craved resulted in a new cabinet, appointed by a leader who was elected by none of the electorate.Read more
