Register to vote in the EU referendum

I would like to encourage people, if they haven’t already, to register to vote in the EU referendum on the 23rd June.

The link is here:

Me and my wife (who, because she is a Finnish national, cannot vote despite the fact that she’s lived in the UK for nine years and is a taxpayer) both have strong opinions on the EU referendum, which I will talk about eventually. I just need to figure out a way of doing it that won’t get me into trouble. Either way, thoughts need to be put down on something at some point.

However, our main concern at this point is that people are actually able to vote. Whether we like of this vote or not, this is a referendum that could have huge ramifications on the UK’s place in the world, and it is to that extent that as many people as possible should be able to have a say. I can’t think of a single good reason as to why you shouldn’t vote.

The deadline is the 7th June. Please register. Now. Go to

In the meantime, could I please ask all politicians involved in this sorry state of affairs to stop bitching about other politicians and actually discuss the issues around this referendum? It’s so DULL. This is a referendum that affects so many people – more than you may originally think – and to see this reduced to a game of politicians slagging off other politicians is a real low point in modern politics. Or at least it is to me anyway,

A reminder of the link:

The above writing is nothing to do with any organisations that I work for or have worked for in the past. Just so you are aware.
