Politics students chat & discussion thread

I have totally not stolen this idea from the wonderful @Puddles the Monkey. :mmm:

However, it would be lovely to create a general discussion and chat thread for politics students (and people in general just interested in politics) at all levels. So, please, come in! I think this thread would be useful to find people who do the same exam board as you, in order to exchange study tips etc.

Level: N/A as of now, will be studying AS Level next year
Subjects studying: ^
Favourite period of politics: As a few have said, the 2010-2015 Conservative-Liberal Democrats coalition. The fact that it was the first coalition government in a while, and how Nick Clegg's political career plummeted due to the whole tuition fee situation is really interesting
