Politics refers to the interrelated sets of activities involved in the governance of a country. Involving various levels of positions of organized governance, modern politics is fundamentally about making decisions that will apply to a state of people. Typically split into separate political parties that collectively support shared positions and policies, a country’s government must deal with a variety of critical human issues from making laws, building infrastructure, and conducting trade to providing education, protection, healthcare, housing, and navigating war. In democratic societies, the government is chosen through public elections meant to ultimately represent the will of the people.

Every day, everywhere in the world, things happen. Sometimes these things or good and sometimes they are bad. Sometimes we don’t know if they are good or bad. When people report on these things, it is called the news. The news that we hear about in newspapers or on television are often extraordinary things, or things that affect other people. Politics, the decisions that are made by those in power, sometimes creates situations that are reported on in the news, and sometimes things happen affect political decisions. It sounds complicated but it really isn’t.

Why is the news important in our lives?

The news is important in our lives because it helps inform individuals within society about the public events that are occurring around them and may affect their daily lives. News is also often a source of entertainment and can provide a distraction from information. The news can also help create a social gathering space.

What is political science?

Political science is the subject that explores the theory and practice of the government and politics at the local, state, national, as well as international levels. Individuals who study political science are concerned to explore the understanding of institutions, practice, and relations that make up public life and promotes citizenship.

What is the journalistic code of ethics?

The journalistic code of ethics is the list of principles that journalists uphold to ensure that the information they are providing is accurate, fair, as well as thorough. Ethical journalists act with integrity. The journalistic code of ethics ensures that journalists seek truth and report it, are accountable, and transparent.

Boris Johnson
Series of dimensioned illustrations of Boris Johnson in a range of postures from standing to waving and walking

Boris Johnson, born Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson, is the current Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. He is a member of the Conservative party and has served in a variety of cabinet positions under different governments, most infamously as the UK’s foreign secretary. Inheriting the role from Theresa May, he is now Prime Minister during the politically turbulent time of the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union (for which he led the campaign to Leave in 2016). He has suffered numerous defeats in parliament in his very short time of being Prime Minister and undergone a series of controversies and political blunders, including the very serious and very British problem of having lied to the Queen.

Boris Johnson is 5 foot 9 inches (1.75 m) tall.
