The '45ers' will travel to Florida in November during the final week of the Presidential Election to experience the excitement around American politics once more, compiling our findings upon our return in order to produce our legacy report which will outline our suggestions for British political parties as to how they can increase youth engagement.
There is no arguing against the corruptness of the EU, the system is flawed and concentrates authority in a minority who are given the political and economic power to crush the sovereignty of countries like Greece. Yet right now, I believe Britain needs to remain in the union to be able to fight back with Greece but also to squash the re-emergence of the right, neoliberal branch of the Tory party, who are hell bent on propelling us back into a Thatcherite age.
While our own Prime Minister benefits from an offshore fund established to avoid tax - one of my grandparents is lumped with a backdated tax collection totalling £2500, and has to take out a bank loan to repay it. This is our economy. This is the system that we operate within and, frankly, it's on us to do something about it.
If you genuinely care about the victims of ISIS then don't just care for the white dead ones. Care for the ones washing up on the shores of Calais, for the ones seeking asylum across Europe and for the ones our government will strike as 'collateral damage'. Don't bullshit with white washed sincerity and empty paragraphs that are little more than a jump on to the bandwagon.
What encapsulates all of Corbyn's shortcomings in yesterday's PMQs is a lack of drive and ambition. He seems quite content to remain as a critic, rather than a leader, to react, rather than seize initiative, and to create a socialist movement, rather than a socialist country. He is Labour's accidental leader. As if he went out in search for a Cheeseburger and ended up dining at the Ritz.
On Wednesday morning I was met with a somewhat unforeseen and uncomfortable scenario: defending Jeremy Corbyn. Whilst this is not a position I intend to make a habit of, the onslaught that has followed his silence during a rendition of the national anthem has rendered me with no option but to plead for the defence.
New Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has promised a new kind of politics. He has promised to build an inclusive party that engages with those who have been turned off politics. Moreover, he represents the forefront of anti-austerity politics. Britain under Corbyn would reverse cuts and engage in a new round of public spending.
The back-and-forth drama between politicians is unlikely to decrease anytime soon and in the current political climate, perhaps we need all the humour we can get. And who knows-picturing Cameron, Clegg and Miliband setting up their own cafeteria rules and sashaying down a hallway to Missy Elliott might be just what we all need.
Certainly, the upper house needs reform in a number of areas, not least to ensure that numbers do not balloon to ridiculous proportions.The answer though certainly does not lie in stripping away all that is good about the House of Lords and replacing it with a room full of elected, whippable Lords, who will do what their party tells them.
