Political Outlook: Although a Free Marketeer and a Wet, Miles is characterized by his loyalty. He has never voted against the party whip in his 11 years in Parliament, and is usually willing to follow the leader's talking points, even when the leader is on his or her way out. Behind closed doors, Miles advocates a liberal worldview of social liberalism and monetarist, free market, Austrian-school economics.
