Government and Politics

Government and Politics

Politics is an exciting subject because the vast majority of people do have political opinions, even if they think that they are 'not political'! It is also perhaps the most contemporary academic subject because of its newsworthy nature. If you watch any news bulletin there are usually one or two items that are either directly or indirectly connected to politics, i.e. the economy, education, war in Afghanistan, the health service etc.

Of course there are differences of opinion on these matters and this is what actually makes it such an intriguing subject to study.
