As a current student of Politics at the University of York, I’m excited to gain some ‘hands-on’ experience within the political world. Having recently joined the Labour Party, I decided that it was appropriate to assist in building a fairer society in a time of great political turmoil. We face numerous challenges both locally and nationally, which threaten to undermine the quality of services provided to the many. Therefore, it is in my firm belief that only a Labour government can fully address these issues. In the era of debate on such ‘high political issues’ in which it is easy to forget the issues faced by real people, I look forward to helping resolve the daily issues faced by real people in Nic’s constituency.
As a member of York United Nations Association, I have a keen interest in international affairs. This, alongside my position as International Organisations editor for the York Politics Review leads me to be disappointed in the outcome of the 2016 Referendum on membership of the European Union. However, it is extremely important we respect the due course of democracy. Thereby, it is extremely difficult to find any support for the Great Repeal Bill, with the slant of due process and parliamentary scrutiny with the proposed Henry VIII clauses.
