Chances are, if you listen to this podcast you’re a bit of a lefty. And that’s fine. And we are too.

But lefties surely can’t claim a monopoly on environmentalism, can they? There are plenty of non-lefties who say they care just as much about the planet, after all.

So, in a demonstration of BBC-standard impartiality, we decided to interview an Actual Tory. It’s only been 157 episodes, after all.

Step forward Sam Hall, director of the Conservative Environment Network and former aide to Michael Gove, to give a passionate defense of Tory environmentalism. Crikey moses.
