I am an English and Magazine Journalism student in my third year at Southampton Solent University. I’ve always had a keen interest in politics and have a hot headedness about me when it comes to opinions. However, i feel a bit like my opinions on politics are a little…. unsupported, when my general political knowledge hasn’t exactly been stretched much further than CBBC’s news-round.
After deciding to take Political Journalism as a module, this blog is the first assignment. I’m hoping that through research and opening my mind to the wide world of politics, I will be able to jump down from the ever so cliche fence that i sit on, and have a proper ‘winge’ and moan about the political situation that I am subliminally confronted with every day of my life!
