Brexit Lords have a cheek to complain about EU democracy | @nick_clegg
– It is ridiculous for a group of unelected British peers to criticise the lack of accountability of EU institutions –
[Excerpt] …With more than 800 members, the House of Lords is only second to China’s National People’s Congress in size and is about as undemocratic: unique in Europe, its members can revise and amend the laws of the land without anyone actually being elected…
Yet this obvious inconsistency appears to have escaped Lord Lawson et al when they berate the EU as “profoundly undemocratic”. I find what they do every day in the House of Lords profoundly undemocratic too.
Similarly, Boris Johnson, Michael Gove, Chris Grayling and the other Brexit ministers appear to be entirely untroubled that they serve in a Government that garnered no more than 24 per cent of the eligible vote…
… It took the EU almost 30 years, for instance, to agree a common definition of chocolate … A body that takes three decades to define chocolate can be described as many things — not least slow and bureaucratic — but an undemocratic conspiracy is hardly one of them…

Conservatives will stand up for Britain if the EU lets us down | @SteveBakerHW

– Opinium survey suggests remain camp has lost four points in two weeks, as Boris Johnson prepares to campaign on security –

Brexit and the union: Tug of war | @TheEconomist
– Brexit could lead to a second Scottish independence referendum. But the place to fret about most is Northern Ireland –
[Excerpt] …Remainers have tried to use the Scottish card to strengthen their hand in England by warning that Brexit would trigger a second independence referendum which…a resurgent Scottish Nationalist Party (SNP) might win…
…a month ago it lost its overall majority in the Scottish parliament… And even if she were able to call a second referendum, Ms Sturgeon cannot risk it… The example of Quebec suggests that two lost votes…for decades…
…Oil prices are half as high as then, so an independent Scotland would face even bigger economic and fiscal difficulties. After Brexit, the EU might be more welcoming to a Scotland seeking membership, but it would still object to its keeping the pound instead of adopting the euro. And if a post-Brexit United Kingdom ended free movement of people from the EU, that might mean erecting a border between north and south…
…Farming matters more in Northern Ireland than on the mainland, and it depends more on EU subsidies. Links to Ireland are crucial: it takes 34% of Northern Irish exports…
Ireland is the EU country most worried about Brexit. Irish ministers regularly state their opposition… Britain is Ireland’s biggest export market, and… Dublin to London is the world’s second-busiest international air route…

U.K. イギリス Vol.2(UK’s Referendum on EU Membership イギリスEU残留国民投票 Vol.1)

イギリスのEU残留国民投票(6/23)は、“Why the UK should stay in a reformed EU” 首相と国民との対話集会 でのキャメロン首相の定性的な主張の大筋のとおり、統計の精緻な分析に基づき定量的な説得力を持たせるというのが困難な性質のものかと考えられます。

確かに、EU非加盟国であるノルウェー(参考:Norway & EU & EEA)が国民一人あたりいくら払ってEU市場に入り、いくら売り上げていくら利益が出ている、EU加盟していればそれぞれの額はこうなっている、などと聴衆に訴えられればベストであったとは考えます。しかし、上記性質に加えて、そもそも本来的には、現状をひっくり返すと良くなる点を具体的・明確に示す証明責任はひっくり返したい離脱派にあり、できなければ “論理的には” 離脱派の負けです。

今月どのような動きになるか、そして、投票後に投票結果が及ぼす波状的・連鎖的影響も、適宜追って参ります。〔リンクは全てEnglish。UK’s referendum on EU membership | Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Ireland に残っている文書も参考になります。〕

U.K. イギリス Vol.1

イギリスは何と言っても、アメリカが握る前の時代に世界の覇権を握っていた国。今でも、英語という世界第一言語を筆頭に、英連邦(the Commonwealth、参考:realms(英語))やイギリス文化などの様々な遺産を有し、経済力・人口・国土面積それぞれ強大ではないものの大きな国際的影響力を維持しています。積極的な貿易や地域間交流などに加えて、EU残留国民投票(6/23、参考:英ポンド見通し(日本語))前後の政治経済情勢など国際政治に係る動静や思考も追い少しずつ掘り下げて参ります。 標題『イギリス Vol._』とは異なる場合も含めて、記事や報道なども適宜ご紹介します。その際、〔以下リンク:原則、English。Welcome to GOV.UKから政府各省や大使館などへ繋がっています。〕

なお、同政府のニュースサービスである @merrionstreet には良いレポートが並んでいたようですが、非常にセンシティブな状況のためかリンク切れが多い印象です。それでも残っているものもありますし、著者や所属機関が分かりますので、ご覧ください。
