UK’s tech entrepreneurs remain concerned over Brexit despite the government’s recent investment guaranteed on the Spring Budget. Talent access Jack*, a london-based tech entrepreneur, said that he is to launch a startup company, but is concerned over Brexit. He told Westminster World that he fears the hiring cost of his business would spiral because of a “hard Brexit deal”. The 29-year-old will create a digital publishing platform where consumers could be engaged by various visual content. He said: “Especially for digital startups, their employees have never had to think about residential opportunities here, whether they need visa or not. Even if Brexit is not here yet, for many of them it would make no sense to take jobs in the UK if after a year they will have to apply for certain

How can the Left regain support after the Brexit vote?

Outside the Supreme Court in London this week, two groups stood opposed: the Brexiters and the Remain camp. They were positioned on opposite sides of the court entrance, and supposedly, on opposite sides of the political spectrum. “Brexit is racist,” claimed one group. The other chanted: “The people have spoken.” Although they disagree on issues such as sovereignty, these groups have more in common than they acknowledge. Still there are wide social schisms across the country. In such circumstances, how will Labour regain support? Fifty two per cent of voters wanted to Leave the EU and 48 per cent voted Remain. The divide over Brexit doesn’t bode well for the electoral prospects of any political party. The Secretary of the Labour Party constituency of Chippenham, Andy Newman is well

French President François Hollande has warned Britain that leaving the EU could result with “consequences” for both UK’s economy and immigration matters. President Hollande has highlighted his hopes for Britain to stay in the EU during a summit with PM Cameron. The French president warned that Brexit might mean “consequences” for the UK, including the prospect of a border relocation. Earlier today, French economy minister Emmanuel Marcon threatened that France might be tempted to tear the agreement made with the British border police in the case of a vote to leave during next June's EU referendum. Le Touquet agreement is a bilateral treaty made with France which allows British police to operate on the French side of the border. It is aimed at avoiding immigrants from travelling

Another Europe is Possible is a grassroots campaign mobilising undecided voters to stay in Europe in order to change it for the better. A throng of people loiter in a former brewery-cum-music venue in Brick Lane. Six red fireman poles punctuate the charcoal-coloured interior, and the only light in the room is that reflected off a disco ball. Just across the road in a different corner of the Old Truman Brewery, a similar gathering was held at the launch of Britain Stronger In Europe a few months ago. Tonight, a grassroots campaign, Another Europe is Possible, is pushing for a vote to stay in the European Union (EU). While the two ‘In’ campaigns may be close in origin, they could not be further apart in their vision for Europe. Another Europe is Possible is not seeking to be an

Cameron has succeeded in securing a UK deal to stay in the European Union with unanimous support from all 28 member states. Prime Minister David Cameron has finally reached a deal with European Union leaders following two days of negotiation at the EU council summit held in Brussels. The discussion was key to Cameron’s decision to campaign staying in the EU or opting out. As a result, the British people are due to vote to stay in or out of the EU during a referendum scheduled June this year. Cameron’s proposed UK deal and reforms reportedly include: Changes to EU migrants’ access to benefits in the UK with a seven-year emergency brake on migrant welfare. Child benefits curbs to claimants from 2020, the right for Britain to opt out from any ambition to a “ever closer union”

Cameron’s EU package of reforms to keep Britain in the EU had its first test in the House of Commons today. During Prime Minister Question Time in Parliament, the debate revolved around the EU-UK deal with Cameron defending his plan aimed at keeping Britain in the EU. The PM said: “My plan is to bring welfare, immigration, and bail out powers back to the UK. This will make us stronger and better.” The European Union has recently denied Cameron a full four-year ban on EU migrants’ right to claim benefits. Britain will be only allowed to offer the chance to gradually increase them over the four-year period. Cameron stood by his draft EU deal and tried to persuade MPs to back his proposal which will lead to an IN/OUT referendum that could be held on June 23rd  2016. The PM fa
