John Bercow, Speaker of the House of Commons

I don't mean by that that it will necessarily at any stage be compulsory to vote in that way, but I think that the notion that, if it can be established as secure and reliable, people should have the option to vote online, will gain ground more and more and more.

Yanis Varoufakis, Former finance minister of Greece, is Professor of Economics at the University of Athens

agrees Basic Income

disagrees Robot Tax

James Duddridge MP,

agrees Brexit
Arguably Europe is no longer the big growth market. We need to reassert ourselves in the commonwealth and with the anglosphere. The future is bright outside the European Union and our destiny in under out control. It makes sense to leave and leave now.
