Welcome to my blog, where I plan to comment on the forthcoming UK General Election.
The catalyst for putting my thoughts to words has been several conversations with friends. Most are loosely interested in politics, and appreciate the importance of engaging with the political process, but are either completely switched off by modern politicians, and/or unsure where to start on making informed decisions. I’ve been asked for my opinion often enough that I thought I may as well make the opinions available in pixels! The other catalyst stems from a self-confessed weakness – I find it almost impossible to properly react in the 140 characters mandated by Twitter, and would like to provide better-thought and nuanced replies to the political news of the day.
While the blog is absolutely for everyone who wishes to read it, and I very much enjoy engaging with the readership, it will not take long for my own political preferences to become evident! I nonetheless hope that those who do read and comment (and I very much hope you will comment!) will do so in good spirit, and then even where one may disagree, we can do so without being disagreeable.
I am open to addressing any issue you would like me to comment on – simply fill in the contact form below to send me a request! As a rule, I will comment on applying political theory to present politics, and particularly would like to help Christians to engage intelligently with the debates surrounding the next election. I do hope that in some way my thoughts will be helpful to you.
