    Hey i don't have a clue about politics and when people discuss the news with regards to the political issues it makes no sense to me.

    How and where do i even begin to learn about the issues in the news ?

    Id start off by keeping an eye on the news, watching it regularly and going to the BBC website to read about issues explained in a basic way. I'd also go to the websites of each political party to see what they stand for and make a judgement on which one you most associate yourself with. I'd avoid going to mainstream newspaper websites apart from the guardian or the independent as most of them are biased and will give you a one sided viewpoint of issues.

    My best advise would be to keep an eye on the political headlines, do a few of those political compass tests (google them) they'll give you a good idea of your views, visit places like

    Reddit.com/r/ukpolitics to get a good idea of whats going on right now.

    Watch programs on the BBC like "the big questions" also start watching question time every Thursday, it'll help you have a good idea of what people are currently thinking, they often have people to argue both sides on that show.
