Nadim: @NadimMuslim

Hello, I’m Nadim. I attend Nottingham Trent University and study  International Relations with Politics.

It has been a number of years now that I’ve been supporting the Conservatives. Currently I am the Regional Secretary for East Midlands Conservative Future as well as Deputy Chairman (Membership) for Nottinghamshire. I see myself as a ‘Thatcherite Conservative’. The pursuit of free market economics, privatisation of state-owned assets (besides the NHS), the lowering of taxes and reduced social expenditure is what I’d like to see from a government. You may question why I exclude the NHS – simply it is because I am a firm believer in it. However, some aspects can be passed to the private sector, where tasks can be done more effectively.

 

Mark: @MrkParsons

Hi, I’m Mark! I’ve always had an interest in politics, my first real involvement was telling my mother to vote Labour in 2005 because Michael Howard scared the crap out of me – slightly ironic I know, but at that point I was more interested in being a kid. Since 2008 I’ve taken much more of an interest and come to realise that I am a Classical Liberal.

I believe the most important thing a government can do is uphold the liberty of each and every individual it serves.

Gareth: @GarethJAnderson

Hello there! I’m the oldie here, and an occasional contributor. I joined the Conservative Party in 1995, when John Major was Prime Minister and we were welcome on few doorsteps, but, being a Tory who hails from Liverpool, I rarely do anything the usual way. I won my first council seat in the industrial town of Ellesmere Port in 2002, and have remained a councillor ever since, beating off various Labour assaults at 3 elections since then.

I spent almost a decade teaching and recently returned to university to study law. Politics and a love of democracy have been an obsession since I was 9 years old and watched that lone man face down a line of Chinese tanks in Tiananmen Square, an earthquake of an event soon followed by the fall of the Berlin Wall. Beyond politics I can frequently be found on stage, behind a camera, grappling with a steering wheel or playing PS3 games exceptionally badly.
