Politics colours everything, and anyone who wants change is necessarily political. As an environmental campaigner more or less since I left school in the early ’90s, I have always been involved in lobbying, campaigning and pushing for changes.
Zac Goldsmith is the MP for Richmond in London, a member of the Environmental Audit Committee and this week was part of the panel of MPs who pretended to interview Tony Juniper ahead of his confirmation as the next Chair of Natural England. Zac’s contribution, when his fellow Tory MPs were niggling away about vegan breakfasts and £50 donations to the Green Party was priceless. And also demonstrated what real independence looks like.
