About Me

My name is Matthew Cowley and I am a second year Politics and Economics student at the University of Southampton. I’m a keen debater and public speaker, and into all things politics or Southampton FC.

Matt’s Musings will mainly be my views on politics and the world, which started with my first series ‘Musings on Europe’ and has since branched out into lots more interesting subjects.

I was the 2016/17 President of the Southampton Debating Union, and am an active member of the Conservative Party – having been the 2016/17 President of the Southampton University Conservative Association. During the EU Referendum I founded Southampton Students for Britain (@SfBSouthampton) to campaign for a ‘Leave’ vote. Please find my 140 character musings at @matcow7.
