Donnachadh McCarthy Reveals All About UK Politics at The Bohemia

PUBLISHED: 11:41 23 May 2017

In the run-up to the election, the Barnet Green Party is inviting key speakers to entertain and inform audiences at free events open to the public. The first is Donnachadh McCarthy who reveals all about what really happens in politics. McCarthy is the author of the new book 'The Prostitute State – how Britain’s Democracy Has been Bought'. He will be speaking at The Bohemia, near Tally Ho Corner in North Finchley on Monday December 8th at 8pm. McCarthy is a former Deputy Chair of the Liberal Democrats (and is no longer a member) and uses his insider experience at the top of one of Britain’s 5 major parties as evidence for his thesis that due to the fact that four major pillars of British democracy are increasingly in corporate hands, that we no longer live in a democracy but in The Prostitute State. According to McCarthy, the pillars of this state are: a corrupted political system, a prostituted media, a perverted academia and a thieving tax-haven system. McCarthy is a long-time environmental campaigner, author of two eco –books How to Save the Planet without Costing the Earth & Easy Eco-auditing, former eco-columnist for The Independent and appears frequently on national and regional TV & Radio commenting on a range of eco-issues. His Victorian terrace home in Camberwell was London’s first carbon negative house. He was the person who was being arrested at the peaceful Occupy Democracy protest who Green Party Baroness Jenny Jones was seeking to help, for which she also got arrested. He also runs an independent environmental consultancy 3 Acorns Eco-audits. There will also be a chance to meet the Green Party candidates for Finchley and Golders Green (Adele Ward), Chipping Barnet (AM Poppy), and Hendon (Ben Samuel).
