It’s a fascinating debate usually with Joe public on one side and the government and policing services on the other.
This story certainly grabs the attention of the public as it’s covered by publications worldwide.

The Green Party has made another absolutely hilarious film highlighting the in-fighting, squabbles, party self-interest and unfair policies that other parties have, all while making a fantastic pitch for people to vote Sian Berry on May 5th to be London Mayor.

It’s a bold approach to break the old and stuffy way that party political broadcasts are usually handled.
