Not your typical millennial Londoner. Trying to be as bipartisan as I can, I read/watch/listen to 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 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 and, after working in the NHS, am currently a medical student.
