James Smith gave a talk on the Forum stage at the Secret Garden Party festival about his experiences of standing for election in May, and why he did it.

Talk Description

Our democracy has to change to be fit for the 21st century. Frustrated by the lack of decent political choices, James started a wikipedia-style manifesto project, and formed a new party to stand for election in May. This is the story of what he did, why, what happened along the way, and what happens next.
