    One of my main ambitions is onto atleast run for Prime Minister. I know that every little boy grows up wanting to be in charge of the country, but I want to change the country for the better. I want to take a party like UKIP and transform it from the racist party many people see it as today (I know it isn't racist) to a party that can implement a strict mixture of relatively radical right AND left wing ideas. Look at the state of our prison systems and emergency services, with nurses at the NHS being worked like donkeys, working all day every day for the good of our people. I can't say I was a firm believer in the Brexit win, but we need to accept it, and do the best we can. We should make people on Jobseeker's Allowance work in community service type schemes, cleaning up parks and in essence nearly cancel out how much money we pay them through their work. That will free up money to be put towards the disabled and OAPs, and whilst on the topic of OAPs, we will introduce more government funded homes for them, due to the homes costing a grand per week in some places. We will give tax breaks to large companies to set up their homes and warehouses in the UK, earning more money from the jobs that are created as a result of it. Those are just a few of my thoughts to start off with, so ask me anything else you want to know

    From what teachers have said, politics is considered a soft subject. I've read upon it, and there are mixed opinions, so I decided to play it safe with sure fire facilitating subjects

    Join the que OP, though it's good to see ambition.

    Can't say i expect the Kippers to be a major feature of politics in the long run. All polling evidence indicates that though Labour is bleeding, it is to the Tories and Lib Dems (not a shock since few people really want soft Brexit over remain vs hard Brexit). They may win the odd seat for a while but they'll struggle to maintain third place in 2020.

    Sorry, but UKIP will never be in power (and this is coming from a Brexit-supporter). I'd suggest trying to change the Conservative party rather than UKIP. Can't be PM without a strong party.

    Politics is on par with econ and more respected than philosophy (which is much more soft).

    From the Clare college, Cambridge, website:

    "The Russell group universities have produced a guide to post-16 study options: Informed Choices. Many university courses require particular subjects to be taken at A-level (or equivalent qualifications). The subjects which are most often required are sometimes called "facilitating subjects" and these are: Mathematics and Further Mathematics; English Literature; Physics; Biology; Chemistry; Geography; History and Languages (Classical and Modern)"

    "Economics and Politics were the top two choices outside the list of facilitating subjects."

    Isn't this one college ? I swear in the trinity list philosophy is in list A1 whereas politics is in B?

    If the tories do not deliver on brexit then UKIP would win a landslide
