There were many General Election hustings in Cambridge during the 2015 campaign. But this was definitely one of my favorites. Ultimately I achieved 4,109 votes for the Green Party in 2015 (7.9% of votes cast).
Media appearances and talks
This is the Media appearances and talks section of my website. Here you will find a collection of some of the public appearances, philosophy lectures, and television interviews that I have accumulated in my career to date.
Here is my talk at the Royal Institute of Philosophy on 24/10/2014.
The talk subsequently formed the basis for a paper of mine, “Wittgenstein and the Illusion of ‘Progress’: On Real Politics and Real Philosophy in a World of Technocracy” in Royal Institute of Philosophy Supplement 78, (2016): 265-284. The full paper can be accessed via my ResearchGate
Here is a video of the Green Party launching our Eastern manifesto for the 2014 European Parliamentary elections, where I stood as the lead MEP candidate. We were fortunate enough to have Green Party leader Natalie Bennett present for the launch, along with other Green MEP candidates on the Eastern list: Mark Ereira-Guyer, Fiona Radic and Marc Scheimann. In the end together we achieved 133,331 votes (8.5% of votes cast), which was frustratingly close to getting me elected to the European Parliament as one of the Eastern region's 7 MEPs.
Here is a video of me being interviewed by IntergenerationalTV discussing my proposal for "Guardians" for Future Generations. I subsequently launched a report about the idea through Green House think tank. You can access the Green House report here.
