    It's clear Brexit issue is coming to a head, one way or another. There is another, even more vital, issue that's coming to a head, however. That issue is climate change, and it affects everyone. If we don't tackle climate change now, by slashing our usage of fossil fuels and drastically cutting our consumption of meat and dairy, there is a very good chance that there will be a global catastrophe within the next quarter of a century that dwarfs all but the most virulent pandemics.

    We're on the verge of destroying our planet. Climate change is very real, and we need to make significant changes to our lifestyles if we want to avert a climate catastrophe. One such change is we need to significantly reduce the distance that food travels from the farm to our plates. We need to buy local.

    Skills-based migration sounds like a great thing on the face of it. You make sure that anyone coming to your country contributes to the bits of your economy that the Government knows needs workers. You also make sure that those workers are highly skilled workers and that they won't be a drain on our safety net. We end up with enough bankers, engineers, and doctors without flooding the country with so-called cheap labour.
