“If all mankind minus one, were of one opinion, and only one person were of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one person, than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind.” – John Stuart Mill

This is the new, improved and revamped Political Union!

We are a friendly group that despite our purpose, don’t let politics get in the way of making friends and letting your voice be heard. We encourage all members to get involved so if you have an idea about what to discuss then don’t hesitate to ask we want different views. Debates can range from deep philosophical discussion to simple opinion based ideas.

We will hopefully be introducing more structured debating styles this year but we currently have debates which are open to people of all abilities which require audience participation. Free speech is the most important aspect of university life. University is where ideas should be challenged not reinforced and in this society we aim to open your mind to different ways of thinking. So if you have an idea please share it and remember there are no wrong opinions only less convincing ways of arguing.

We are planning regular socials that involve a lot of drinking, question time debates close to election time (nationally and within the union) and maybe even more published debates with other universities, the world is our oyster ladies and gentlemen and we plan to take it by storm!
