Lucky for me, Christopher Wylie, equally well-known (it seems) for his pink hair as the Cambridge Analytica whistle-blower, is here.” Guinevere recounts Wylie’s views on data privacy and its implications for democracy.

The People Behind the Policy

At TalkPolitics, we’re committed to changing perceptions of politicians. We believe that MPs and political figures are often unfairly slandered in the press, and ostracised by much of society as elitist, uncaring and, frankly, stupid – when in reality they are incredibly hard-working, incredibly smart individuals dedicated to improving society in the way they think is best.

In order to change these perceptions, we’re starting up our own interview series called “The People Behind the Policy,” which, whilst dipping in to current affairs and important issues, will focus mainly on the MPs as people, their backgrounds, entrance in to politics, and what they do in their spare time.

We believe that changing perceptions of MPs means many will be more willing to work with the government constructively, rather than immediately condemning potential legislation to the dustbin without proper consideration.
