Thibagaran Baskaran

Not your typical millennial Londoner. Trying to be as bipartisan as I can, I consume articles, videos and podcasts published by The Spectator, New Statesman, and The Economist. I regularly read The FT, Private Eye and the London Review of Books.

My view on the purpose of ‘news’ comes mostly from Alain de Botton’s book ‘The News: A User’s Manual’. A choice excerpt: ‘We could sympathize with more or less anyone if their story was told to us in a certain way – and we wouldn’t necessarily be wrong to do so.’

I recently graduated with a degree in Philosophy, Politics and Religions. I’m currently working in the NHS before I go to medical school.
