Being in the heart of London, we are a short distance away from Westminster, the heart of our democracy. The opportunity to meet engaged people, see more of the political landscape, and forge individual political views is immense. Conservatism can be seen as more than just a philosophy of preventing unnecessary radical change and keeping the choice elements society. It can be Libertarian in flavour, supporting individual and economic freedom, it can be Compassionate, stressing the improvement of the general welfare of society. The list can go on! We want to foster debate and discussion! Over the past year we've hosted events with politicians on both a local and national level, including the Science and Universities Cabinet Minister, Rt Hon David Willetts MP, the 1st First Minister of Northern Ireland, The Lord Trimble, and the UK's greatest living expert on Parliament, Professor The Lord Norton of Louth. If you wish to attend talks and debates featuring politicians, political commentators, and students from across London, the society offers unparalleled opportunities! This year's guests speakers include a number of Imperial Alumni such as Karen Bradley MP and The Lord Carrington of Fulham. We are an international university and hence the society is open to all; we do like a good discussion on international affairs! We are the most active political society at Imperial, and we are a welcoming group. Our aims are to promote political discussion, combat apathy and raise awareness of national and international politics.
