My views on:

I support it, but I think it should benefit humanity as a whole rather than huge corporations.

I am proud of my country but I am not univerisally supportive of its past actions, such as the crimes committed by the British Empire.

A lot of the time this is not necessary and often done for economical rather than humanitarian purposes. I do occasionally support it though, such as the 2018 bombings of Syrian chemical weapons facilities.

I am a Keynesian capitalist, and believe that, although capitalism is a bad system, it better than all the alternatives and that it needs significant government intervention. Taxes should also be higher on those with the ability to pay more.

I am pro-choice and believe there should be abortion on demand within the first trimester and for extreme circumstances at any stage.

Only justifiable in a dictatorship or other authoritarian regime. I do not think it is usually justifiable in democratic societies.

I believe it should be legal with heavy restrictions and for persons aged 18 or over only.

I believe it is ridiculous and historically inaccurate to describe other cultures as 'savage'. We should all live in respect and tolerance for one another.

Welfare should not be cut, although I am against the UBI for the time being. Also, f*ck universal credit.

Legal Immigration assists the British economy and thus aiming to lower it is a pointless endeavour. (Yes, I'm looking at you, Theresa May)

I find nothing objectable about having state-financed media channels. But, private channels must never be prohibited.

We must never curb the right to privacy in order to counter terrorists unless by court order.

Democracy should be to hold the government to account, not the people making complicated decisions presented in a simple manner. I am against referenda.

Because of the estimated 4% death row innocence rate and its unnecessary costs that could be better spent on better causes, I am against the death penalty.

Whilst I agree some criminals can't be rehabilitated, rehabilitation should prioritise over punishment.

I believe men and women must be completely equal.

I believe God may or may not exist. We shall never know. I also believe in the complete separation of Church and State

I believe prostitution should be illegal as it objectifies women, but only clients should be prosecuted.

I believe that same-sex marriage should be legal but churches should have the right to refuse this ceremony.
