I am currently in my third of reading Politics at the University of Exeter. With age, I found myself centring to the middle of British politics, due to a number of influential figures in my life. These names include; the aforementioned Tony Blair, former President of the United States, Barack Obama and most recently, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
These figures have passed onto me some important lessons. I believe Parliament should strive for a strong economy, thus truly supporting vital parts of the UK welfare system, such as the NHS. The NHS itself needs a massive ground up re-structure, necessitating a bi-partisan long term plan. Education also needs to be reviewed, not only because it is woefully under-achieving, but due to the massive long-term impact it has on the public.
Where I truly categorise myself as a Liberal is not only my belief in a progressive world, but also a united one, in which we promote free-trade, free-movement and intergovernmental organisations.
In case you hadn’t noticed – yes, I am a remainer.
