I am currently an undergraduate at University College, London. I’m interested in foreign affairs, politics, and literature.
The title, ‘Devil’s Advocado’, is perhaps a confusing choice of nom de plume, but I don’t mean by it to express a desire for a bipartisan, healing, consensual, decaffeinated political patois, in which no side is taken and no opinion remarkable, or remarkable upon. I am partisan: I care for rational, evidence-based analysis, and try to oppose the dreary cliches and ideological ukases of politicians, religious figures, and soi-disant intellectuals.
I am of the Devil’s party, as it were: the party of the Enlightenment; and this humble weblog shall attempt to provide for readers who feel themselves part of the same fraternity. We don’t have mottos — but, if we did, one might just be Non serviam.
If you would like me to write for you, please do contact me. I am currently a student, but very soon I shall be — and I find I must emphasise this – poor and jobless. Please direct your offers of jobs and inexplicably large sums of money thither:
