Tom Rollins

I grew up in the North of England, which has always defined my politics. I'm interested in class, free-market capitalism and Western imperialism, industrial relations and disputes, foreign affairs, international activism, and neo-conservatism. Since graduating with an English Literature degree from Cambridge last year, followed by a postgrad journalism diploma from the University of Sheffield; I now eke out a living freelancing as a political journalist in London, where I live with my girlfriend and 10 cats. I'm currently interning with PolicyMic from the UK. In the past I have written for The Guardian, ASLEF Journal, Northern Echo,, Trolls and Ponies magazine and Varsity, but I also regularly blog at Enlightenment Blues:
