Show Notes

On this episode of It's Bloody Complicated, Frances Foley is joined by another great double bill – this time Peter MacFadyen who has inspired the Flatpack Democracy movement and Indra Adnan one of the co-founders of the new politics champions The Alternative UK.

Flatpack Democracy is an independent movement which started in Frome, inspired by frustration with  missed opportunitities the way local government usually works. Since then, the group has taken control of the local council and inspired similar groups in other towns across the UK.

The Alternative UK is a political platform based in the United Kingdom. Through curation, editorial, public events, commissioning and research, it aims to transform the language and practice of politics on these islands. Inspired by and associated with Alternativet in Denmark, it is trying to bring about “a friendly revolution”.
