David Miliband

The former foreign secretary was born in London, grew up in Oxfordshire and attended St Paul’s school. He studied PPE at Oxford University, where he became president of the Labour club. Miliband is known for his prince-like manner and his passion for saving children from poverty through politics.

He started off as an adviser to Gordon Brown, working on international development policies before becoming head of policy co-ordination at No 10. He had a long history with New Labour until he quit politics to become head of humanitarian aid agency, International Rescue Committee. Most recently he has been teaching at Harvard University in Boston.

Ed Balls

British politician Ed Balls who served as Schools Minister from June 2009 to May 2010 and as Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer under Ed Miliband from September 2010 until his resignation in May 2015. He previously worked for Gordon Brown, when Brown was Chancellor of the Exchequer. On 19 July 2013, Balls lost his seat in Parliament after holding it for over 20 years.

After leaving politics he took up a role at Harvard University where he lectures part-time and contributes to some other political events. From 2013 to 2015 he wrote a regular column for The Guardian newspaper and is now a freelance writer, with articles published in The Financial Times, The New Statesman, Newsweek/The Daily Beast, Huffington Post and Politico Europe.

Rishi Sunak

Mr Rishi Sunak is a Conservative MP for Richmond. He was born in 1984, attended Haberdashers’ Aske’s Boys’ School and went on to study politics at Christ Church, Oxford. He joined Barclays Capital upon graduating before becoming an investment manager at Lombard Odier Darier Hentsch & Cie between 2010 and 2012.

Mr Sunak stood as a parliamentary candidate in 2010 and was elected to parliament in 2015, beating former home secretary Jacqui Smith by more than 6,000 votes. His main areas of interest are housing, small business, apprenticeships and young people. He has been appointed Parliamentary Private Secretary to Cabinet Office Minister Matthew Hancock MP – who also serves as Government Minister for Skills & Enterprise – following his first reshuffle in July 2016.

Gordon Brown

Brown became Prime Minister in June 2007, when Tony Blair resigned. Before serving as prime minister, Brown was Chancellor of Exchequer (also known as British finance minister) from 1997 to 2007. While he has been criticized for not being able to deal with economic crises well and for his involvement in both Iraq and Afghanistan wars, Brown is very popular in his own country and has expressed a wish to stay on in his position until 2010.

Nicola Sturgeon

Sturgeon is a Scottish politician serving as First Minister of Scotland since 2014 and Leader of the Scottish National Party (SNP) since November 2014. The first woman to hold either position, she is also currently MSP for Glasgow Southside and Deputy First Minister of Scotland.

She served as Deputy First Minister of Scotland from 2007 until 2014, Sturgeon was elected to represent Glasgow Govan in 2007 and again in 2011; both times following retirement from a previous career as a lawyer. She became SNP leader in November 2014 after her predecessor, Alex Salmond , announced his intention to step down. Following her election Sturgeon indicated that she did not plan to seek election to Westminster before 2020 .

Sadiq Khan

Khan was elected mayor of London on May 5, 2016. He won with 57 percent of first-round votes, becoming both London’s and Britain’s first Muslim mayor. His successful campaign brought together a coalition of voters including those who identified as ethnically British, as well as Hindus, Muslims and Sikhs. Shortly after being elected he stated that his goal is to make London one of the best cities in world by empowering communities around all faiths and backgrounds.

David Blunkett

The United Kingdom uses a multi-party system at both national and local level. Unlike most other European democracies, power is held by two major political parties, making it hard for small parties to gain traction with voters. At present, the two biggest parties are: Labour, led by Jeremy Corbyn; and Conservatives led by Theresa May. The opposition party – Liberal Democrats – is led by Tim Farron, while other smaller parties include UKIP, SNP and Green Party of England & Wales.

Andy Burnham

Mr Burnham, a former health secretary who came second to Mr Corbyn in last year’s leadership contest, said there was a risk of people turning their backs on mainstream politics if they did not feel they were being given real choice. Labour had to embrace political reform and embrace people’s desire for change, he added.

We should have learned from our defeat [in 2015] that we need to be seen as an open party that is ready for government: radical and progressive but also credible with it. This election may come down to one word: choice, he said.

Boris Johnson

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, is one of Britain’s best-known politicians. The former journalist and Conservative MP for Henley was elected to City Hall in 2008. His outspoken views on issues such as same-sex marriage, cycling and Muslim women in niqabs have both delighted and outraged politicians from across all parties.

He had not been expected to run for mayor but then became one of a number of potential candidates to enter. Johnson helped turn himself into a media personality during his time as an MP – he once wrote a column about news stories that referred to his private life under headlines such as Boris Johnson – Man Of Mystery while his comments on other matters were often made at press conferences instead of in parliament.

Nigel Farage

Great Britain’s current most controversial politician, Farage is a lightning rod for British discontent and has used his unique status to make a name for himself. Originally from Great Britain, he’s now leading anti-European Union movements in Sweden and has successfully deflected some of his nation’s discontent by talking about what unites people—being anti-EU.

He was recently named Briton of the Year by a major magazine after spearheading an electoral upset that cost Prime Minister David Cameron his parliamentary majority. But Farage is hated just as passionately: Opponents call him xenophobic, racist and even fascist—which only contributes to his appeal among many Brits who are fed up with mass immigration policies across Europe.

Conclusion

During UK politics in 2017 there have been many interesting facts about government policies that were announced, changes made and people elected into office. Here are some of our favourite moments to look back on with either awe or disgust (or even a little bit of both).

There have been serious strides forward for LGBTQIA+ rights and green energy initiatives, as well as worrying developments in national security and environmentalism. Either way, these are still important matters that affect all of us here in Britain and across Europe. Keep an eye out for more political developments throughout 2018 – it promises to be another eventful year.
