About Us

The Backbencher is a libertarian leaning politics website. Started in September 2012, the site has dedicated its time and efforts to cover British politics, technological innovations and progress.

Our world view is simple: we believe in free markets and free peoples.

The site originated as a student venture; an opportunity for young writers to gain an experience of what journalism was all about, and ultimately, to better understand how they could become a success in a tough industry. But moreover, the Backbencher was coined to promote unorthodox politics: to highlight the issues facing Britain, promote the libertarian cause, and maybe change some minds and opinions along the way.
