In case you missed the enormous banner, my name is Nick Thornsby. I graduated from the University of Manchester in June 2010 with a degree in ancient history (where I wrote my dissertation on classical Athenian banking). I then spent a year studying for the Graduate Diploma in Law (what’s known by normal people as a law conversion course) at the College of Law in Manchester. I am now completing the Bar Professional Training Course at the College of Law in London, which is a pre-requisite to being called to the Bar of England and Wales.
I consider myself a liberal, and as such I’ve been a member of the Liberal Democrats since 2007. I have a lot of time for, among others, Nick Clegg, David Laws, Chris Huhne and Steve Webb.
I supported the formation of the coalition in May 2010, and continue to support it now. I think David Cameron is largely proving himself an effective prime minister (even if he does have the odd barmy idea), and I think the coalition is (most of the time) a good advert for the plurastic, co-operative politics that I support.
I don’t like Ed Balls.
If you want to get in touch you can do so by various means, which you can see HERE.
