Brexit for Dummies (and Hope for Visionaries)

Just before the EU referendum I wrote this article about my struggles with how to vote and why I eventually ended up opting for Brexit.  It got an astonishing reaction being downloaded, read and passed on over 100,000 times.   I have written other things on this topic but never anything on that scale…until today.  I … More Brexit for Dummies (and Hope for Visionaries)

Letter re Dundee – City of Culture, the Scottish Government and the EU Commission

It was depressing reading the responses from our Scottish politicians to the EU Commissions decision last week to exclude Dundee and other UK cities from the European City of Culture bid.  They seemed more concerned about defending the EU and using the opportunity to political point score against Westminster, than defending Dundee.  So I wrote … More Letter re Dundee – City of Culture, the Scottish Government and the EU Commission
