My name is John Wadsworth, I'm 16 and currently live in Leeds. I volunteer as a youth councillor to ensure young people have an influence on the decisions that affect them alongside encouraging as many people as possible to take part in our democracy. I have a keen interest in most politcal issues, especially how economics and politics interact. This is my first experience writing online about my political views and I am really hoping I can add something to the community here at omnipolitical.
In terms of political allegiance, I generally support the Conservative party but am strongly liberal towards issues such as immigration and civil liberties. Although I believe that the market economy is the best way both to maximise and distribute wealth, I have no wish to see a world in which our politics and government are up for sale.
Favourite political philosopher- John Locke
Favourite political quote- "If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich" JFK
