Clarke holds both a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Theology & Religious Studies. As a young person, Clarke knows all too well the difficulties that many young people across the country face, whether it's low wages, struggling with private landlords or trying to save for a house. He believes that the UK's decision to leave the European Union will only worsen these struggles, unless a good deal can be reached between the UK government and the EU. It is because of this that Clarke is determined to fight for the right of every UK citizen to have the final say on the terms of the UK's departure from the EU. The people of h UK may have voted to leave the EU, but they did not vote to become poorer, nor did they vote to have a bad deal imposed upon them without any say.
Clarke spent three years working in secondary education and so understands many of the issues faced by both teachers and students. Education is a key area of importance to Clarke and he is determined to help improve the standards of schools across the constituency, and to fight against the Conservatives' plans to reintroduce selective grammar schools. He is proud of the Liberal Democrats' record on education, in particular the introduction of the Pupil Premium, which helps many students from poorer backgrounds.
Clarke believes in opportunities for everyone, no matter who they are or where they come from. Clarke's aim in entering politics at a young age is to change the direction of our country and ensure that younger people have a voice in the government. His aims are work for a society that provides equal opportunities for everyone, to make sure that all students have access to the same standard of education, to make sure that those who struggle to help make ends meet are given the support they need, and to defend and promote a country that is open, tolerant, and united.
