Generation 2015 profiles: Billy Orton

I live near Hay-on-Wye on the border between Herefordshire and Powys.

I am 18 years old and studying towards my A-levels, with hopes to go on to higher education.

I am a humanist and a secularist; I am a firm believer in the separation of Church and State and feel that any government decision or legislation created should be based on science rather than religion or faith.

I am in favour of the legalisation and taxation of all drugs and a firm supporter of the following: reform of the voting system to one of a more proportional nature, a more progressive tax system, greater investment into alternative nuclear power e.g. thorium or fusion.

I support a more equal and caring society and feel that greater social mobility should be encouraged.
