Liverpool is a liberal dominated city, politically set apart from the rest of the UK. The city has historically bucked the trend of national politics, having itself a distinct culture and therefore outlook, thanks probably to its heavy American/Irish influences and affiliation.

Contrary to the UK's general contemporary culture, political awareness is very high in Liverpool and many people have highly developed, perceptive views on political issues (that they're happy to share!) which can sometimes be surprising when those views come from seemingly unlikely sources.
