A piece for the Mark News:
Britain’s vote to leave the EU was supposed to help settle Britain’s ‘European Question’ instead, it has thrown up more questions than answers.

Forget independence for London – but the capital now needs its own devolved government more than ever
I wrote a while ago on the need to grant devolution to London. The referendum result saw London along with Scotland and N Ireland (and several other cities such as Liverpool and Manchester) vote remain. The result has led to calls for London to seek independence. That's not going to happen. But a devolved government for London can and should...

How is the EU going to interpret the British vote to withdraw from the EU? As Tim Oliver explains, the remaining members of the EU now face three challenges: finding a unified initial response, finding a reliable UK government to begin negotiations with, and reflecting on what it means for current ideas of European integration and unity.

Over the past few years I've written a lot on what a British exit might mean for the EU and so with the referendum upon us I thought I should list all my publications on this topic in one place.
Those of you who know me know my own political preference on this. It leaves me in the strange position of hoping that a lot of my work on Brexit is wasted!

In the EU referendum, London is the capital of Remain
Multicultural metropolis at ease with immigration and globalisation
...The referendum has crystallised a broader divide between the confidence of London and the worries across the rest of Britain in the face of globalisation.
“Overall, London or Londoners win — in England, in the UK, in the European Union and globally. That is not the case for all Londoners, but overall they are winning in the political, the economic and cultural competitions that take place at those different levels,” said Dr Tim Oliver, a professor of politics at the London School of Economics.
For some British “outers”, he argued, this distant and diverse London itself had become a rallying cry for the need to leave the EU. ...
