Politics is a great subject for anyone who wants to know just what is going on in the world. Why do people have such low opinions of politicians? Why does the Prime Minister have the power to declare war without consulting Parliament? Why are fewer people bothering to vote? Has Barack Obama changed the face of American politics? What is a hung parliament? Will the Liberal Democrats ever taste power again? Should the legal age of voting be lowered? Are you argumentative? Do you challenge the things you are told by your parents, your teachers and the media? You may think that sounds bad, but we like these sorts of students in politics! You will succeed in this subject if you enjoy debate and argument.
