Campaigning Officer 2013-14
A member of the party since 2011, Tom was heavily influenced by the views of his MP, Steve Baker, whose association he is active in. Consequently, Tom believes strongly in classical liberal values; of the virtues of the free-market, personal freedom and the night-watchman state. He reads Economics and Political Science, is a member of the Freedom Association, and takes a keen interest in the Austrian School of Economics.
Tom also serves as the Member of Youth Parliament for his hometown of High Wycombe, and writes regularly for the BUCF, Conservative Companion and Conservatives for Liberty blogs. An ex-cadet, Tom has strong military values, and currently intends to train for a Territorial Army commission upon completion of university. He hopes to either enter journalism or teaching.
