About the Natalie Bennett Interview

Hello Reddit! I’m Natalie Bennett.

If British people voted for the policies they support, according to http://VoteForPolicies.org.uk/, we’d already be running the country!

As our membership has increased by 62% in the ‘Green Surge’ of the last month, and our party’s policies are democratically developed by its membership, we’re becoming a strong vehicle for change in the United Kingdom! It’s an exciting time to be Green.

Policies: Our full list of policies can be found here— https://policy.greenparty.org.uk. (Short version here: http://greenparty.org.uk/values/.) For the coming election, we’ll release a manifesto in March that sets out how we can address our current economic, social, political and economic crises.

If you’d to get involved in policy development, join the party!— https://my.greenparty.org.uk/civicrm/membership/joining

And whether you agree with our policies or not - please make sure that you vote: https://www.gov.uk/register-to-vote

About me: After growing up in Australia, I lived in Bangkok for five years until 1999. The information drought there ended when newspapers started going online. As a journalist that was transformatory, and ever since I’ve been a moderately early adopter of technology: I hand coded my first website in about 1997 (before I knew about CSS!)

Ask me anything!

Edit: Thanks everyone for getting involved! I’m doing this: http://www.wired.co.uk/news/archive/2015-01/28/sky-facebook-leaders-debate, “Face the Leaders”, tomorrow morning so I'm heading off now - the hashtag for that is #asktheleaders if you want to follow up today's questions. I've enjoyed this and I'm going to aim to come back again before the election.
