Localism: Bringing the Politics Out of Westminster

"Politics shouldn’t just be about soundbites delivered with a shot of the Houses of Parliament in the background; it should be about engaging people in politics at a local, grass-roots level."

Discourse challenges students’ existing opinions and can indeed be unsettling, but TalkPolitics holds it to be true that it is ultimately beneficial for both the individual and our community.  When ideas clash and people challenge one another through rational debate, their inherent weaknesses and strengths become clear. From this, the good ideas can be sorted from the bad and social progress is achieved.
