By New Statesman

What do you do?

I am a childcare manager.

Where do you live?

Shepperton, Surrey.

Do you vote?

Yes always. Women fought to have the right to do so.

How long have you been a subscriber?

Content from our partners

Data on cloud will change the way you interact with the government
Defining a Kodak culture for the future

Not quite a year.

What made you start?

Research material for a college assignment.

Is the NS bug in the family?

Yes. My eldest son is now an avid reader, he’s a politics and modern history graduate.

What pages do you flick to first?

Anything by Kevin Maguire.

How do you read yours?

I love a paper copy.

What would you like to see more of in the NS?

I would like to see social media platforms taken to task. Fake news breeds discontent and causes anxiety.

Who would you put on the cover of the NS?

Priti Patel. We may not have the same political views, but I feel she faces a type of abuse that her male colleagues don’t.

With which political figure would you least like to be stuck in a lift?

Nigel Farage.
