Jenny Jones, Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb joined the House of Lords in 2013, having been chosen for this appointment in a ballot of all Green Party members. She has also been a Green Party member of the London Assembly since 2000 and was elected as the first Green member of Southwark Council, from 2006 to 2010. In all her roles, Jenny has raised awareness of the dangers of climate change and the urgent need to reduce greenhouse emissions. Jenny has been a member of the project board that has lead the delivery of the East London Green Grid of open spaces.
Last year she was given files which showed that the police kept a log of the political movements of her over an 11-year period while she sat on the official committee scrutinising the Metropolitan police and stood to be London’s mayor. In this talk she talks about her experiences of being spied upon whilst holding public office.
