Political Views

Aston's perspectives on foreign affairs emphasize a critical reassessment of UK foreign policy, labeling it as "a hawkish and immoral litany of failure," particularly highlighting past engagements in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, and Ukraine.

In terms of the role of the state, Aston advocates for a minimalistic approach, viewing the state as "an inefficient, coercive, necessary evil" and supports governance focused on averting negative collective outcomes.

A strong Eurosceptic, Aston played a significant role in the Brexit movement, characterizing the European Union as akin to the Liberal Democrats but without the ability to be voted out.
