Donna Edmunds is a free market advocate and Hayekian crusader. Her particular interest is in the effect of the internet on modern politics, and in 2012 she launched Freedom Matters, an organisation dedicated to researching the role of the internet in political campaigning.
Donna holds a degree in Zoology from the University of Cardiff, coming to politics a few years later through volunteering for the Conservative Party. Her first paid political role was as Assistant and then Political Advisor to Roger Helmer MEP at his office in Brussels, where she witnessed first hand the detrimental effects of the European Union and became a convert to libertarianism. This was followed by a year at Westminster in the office of Therese Coffey MP.
Alongside the research work for Freedom Matters, Donna writes for websites such as The Commentator, Conservative Home and the Freedom Association’s blog.
She is a practicing Christian and often spends long hours attempting to reconcile Randian Objectivism with the Bible.
Donna lives in Sussex with her young daughter and their cat, Io. When not writing, she and her daughter are often to be found on their allotment imploring crops to grow.
