Facebook’s recent crackdown on the use of so-called dark ads in Britain was one of the most visible signs to date of the growing concerns about online manipulation of voters. In October, the social media giant announced it was changing its policy on advertising, after finding itself at the centre of inquiries into the role of online political advertising in the Brexit referendum. UK advertisers wanting to advertise on Facebook now must confirm their identity...

As the United Kingdom hurtles towards its self-set March deadline for leaving the EU, there are growing concerns about what Brexit will mean for its greenbelts and protected conservation areas. Under current arrangements, the UK’s conservation sites are protected under EU Regulations and Directives. Many of those opposing Brexit fear that once Britain leaves the EU, it will no longer have to abide by these, or similar, rules. Greenbelts are patches of land, often surrounding...

With Brexit looming, many independent enterprises fear they will be among the first to suffer when Britain leaves the EU – especially in the event of a ‘no-deal’. Warning on Wednesday that a no-deal Brexit could impose “a very severe disruption to trade”, the Bank of England published an 88-page document depicting worst-case-scenario blows to the economy. The predictions suggest that in the “disruptive and disorderly scenarios”, by the end of 2023 UK GDP will...

Though the March deadline is now finally in sight, Britain’s journey towards leaving the European Union seems to be anything but smooth sailing, contrary to what was promised by the Leave campaign in the lead up to 2016’s divisive referendum. Quite the opposite, in fact, as demonstrated by the vocal opposition Prime Minister Theresa May faced in the House of Commons as she presented her draft withdrawal agreement in mid-November, from both opposition parties and...

November 14, 2018 could go down as the day a Brexit deal between the UK and the European Union was finally agreed. However, the reaction from British MPs suggests the deal is far from concluded, with calls for a second referendum increasing. Even while Theresa May ardently defended her Brexit deal in the Commons on the November 15, ministers outside Westminster warned that it was unlikely to be supported, and the likelihood of a second...

Archaeologists in the UK fear an inhospitable climate could drive skilled EU workers away, at a time when they are more in demand than ever.  Since the referendum in 2016, concerns over the future of the NHS, economy, and business have dominated Brexit discussions. Meanwhile the effects of Brexit on the heritage sector, a significant and cherished part of British culture, have been overlooked by both politicians and the public. This is a worrying oversight,...

The UK and the EU may have negotiated a draft Brexit withdrawal agreement, but it is still unclear how they propose to manage the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland following the transition. The Irish question is arguably Brexit’s stickiest, as British Prime Minister Theresa May seeks both to satisfy Brexiteers who want to leave the customs union entirely and to reassure those worried a hard border could threaten the hard-fought-for peace...
