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, and is a member of the Freedom Association, leaning towards the Austrian School. Tom also serves as the Member of Youth Parliament for his hometown of High Wycombe, and writes regularly for the BUCF, DASHTory and Conservative Companion blogs. An ex-cadet, Tom has strong military values, and takes a keen interest in defence and foreign policy issues. He currently intends to train for a Territorial Army commission upon the completion of university. In his spare time, he enjoys fiction writing, formal debating, and studying rhetoric, oratory and body language.
