Revolution boys do it again!

One of my favourite TV shows at the moment is the 'The Revolution Will Be Televised' (TRWBT). These political pranksters remind me of Dennis Pennis. In my opinion, any programme that can highlight social injustices to a younger audience is doing a fantastic public service.

Just recently, I received an email from Dan Iles from the World Development Movement. This organisation has teamed up with TRWBT to fantastic effect. Please watch the video - link below.
Dear Croydon Green Party

The stars of BBC 3’s ‘The Revolution Will Be Televised’ are teaming up with World Development Movement to launch a new film today parodying Barclays’ role in speculating on food prices.

This hilarious spoof is meant to draw attention to the fact that Barclays is making profits of £500 million whilst speculating on food prices. This speculation is driving up the price of food in poor countries and drastically exacerbating world hunger.
Check out the 3 minute film: here

If you liked the film, please make sure to take action and send an email to George Osborne. Follow the link to see how.

We are trying to get as many people to watch and share this film as possible. If you could share this on facebook, twitter or email that would be fantastic.

World Development Movement is an anti-poverty campaign organisation that fights against the policies that make poor countries poor. If you want to find out more about our organisation or sign up to our e- news please visit our website:

Best wishes,


Dan Iles
