UK Political Stance:
Centrist-left


Politics in the past century has housed some of the most controversial and provocative issues that mankind has faced. Here I'm provided with a platform to convey my personal interpretations and opinions on the happenings in the contemporary political climate. I will do so with complete veracity. A new era in global politics is dawning upon us. Uprisings in the Middle East, developing economies in Russia, China, India and Brazil and increasing income and wealth inequalities bring politics to the very forefront of our society. If through this blog i can so much as get one individual to say or do one valiant act I will have achieved my aim.
