A Norway #Brexit?

As soon as the referendum was won for #leave you could feel the fear hitting their leading campaigners. They didn’t expect to win (As Farage admitted defeat and then changed his mind again within a couple of hours) and as has become abundantly clear they have no plan or any idea about what to do…

Where Next? 

It has been a long 72 hours attached to the news cycle and my social media feeds. It was therefore a welcome break to be at OpenHeaven this morning but talk about the referendum and the fallout was never far away. The danger of speaking out last week in the Loughborough Echo alongside Tory MP…

Labour Party Coup Begins 

Politics in the UK changed dramatically on Friday morning. Not just the referendum result itself but the ramifications for the leadership of the political parties. Clearly Cameron understood this and resigned as we all expected. The lack of leadership shown by Corbyn during the referendum campaign only led to further frustration with him from within…
