Monday 

Today, I sent off my postal vote ahead of the EU referendum - and reminded everyone not to miss the deadline for registration. It is vital that we all take the opportunity to have our say in this important debate. 


Tuesday 

En-route to Westminster, I had the pleasure of running into Shetland cooking sensation Marian Armitage. 


Wednesday 

Today, I put it to Cabinet Office Minister, Matt Hancock, that hundreds of thousands of our fellow citizens have effectively been disenfranchised due to the process of individual registration and lack of electoral canvassing.

I then continued my point live on LBC with Ian Dale. 


Thursday 

Today, I debated the EU referendum at Oxford University with Baroness Jenny Jones, Lord Howard, Daniel Hannan MEP, Lord Heseltine and Vicky Pryce. Both sides were joined by excellent representatives of the University in Nikolay Koshikov and Dominic Hopkins-Powell. Pleased to note that Remain took the debate by 227-79. 


Friday 

I was in Derry today, continuing my EU campaigning across the British isles. Bumped into BBC Norther Ireland's Mark Carruthers. 


Saturday 

A busy day of campaigning included discussing the positive case for Europe at an event hosted by the Derry Chamber, and with the Belfast Telegraph. 

Even managed to fit in some singing, with a wee rendition of Annie Laurie.

 

 


Sunday 

I penned this column in the National yesterday, on why Tony Blair's scare tactics have no place in the Northern Ireland of today. 

The news coming out of Orlando followed. An awful tragedy to happen anytime, but especially during Pride month. Thoughts with all those affected.
