General Election 2015: Get Ready, Get Reading!

General Election 2015. Get Ready! Get Reading!

The UK general election is fast approaching. Despite current Prime Minister David Cameron’s assertion that he wants to see the job through, this election looks set to keep us guessing to the last, with both Conservative and Labour parties seeing mixed success in recent polls.

From austerity to Europe, education to equality, there are many national and international issues on the agenda this election. We asked environmental economist Dieter Helm, author of Natural Capital: Valuing the Planet, to introduce one key election theme, the environment, in this short video.
