Please note: Manchester Climate Monthly is non-partisan. We’ve interviewed Ed Miliband (back in the day), and also local councillors from Labour and the Lib Dems. (There are no Tories in Manchester, which is a sad sad state of affairs). The editors of Manchester Climate Monthly are not members of any political party.
