You Have Committed a Political Act

This week’s post is about a very serious & effective political act that any of us can make, right now.
No need to wait for the next general election, you can enforce your vote immediately.
Do you believe in Climate Change?
Are you against Fracking?
Do you want cheaper energy?
Do you want the UK to be energy independent?

Do you want to do something about this?

We have an amazing chance right now. In 1996 the EU began deregulating the gas and electricity markets, to open them to competition & since then we have had the choice to choose what company we get our personal supply of energy from.
Rather than just looking for the cheapest fossil fuel supplier, the energy from which gradually gets more & more expensive, there are now more & more green energy suppliers who put all their profit into green energy research & projects, energy that is virtually free after the initial investment.
Watch the video where green energy company Ecotricity founder Dale Vince explains to Vivienne how this works.

Imagine the whole country switched tonight (it only takes 5 minutes)?
We would wake tomorrow with a completely different national energy policy & the government & their fossil fuel backers would be bypassed!
(We at Westwood have made it our aim to get 50% of the population to switch by the end of 2017)

Chris Matsumura Worlds End shop Vivienne Westwood

For the first post of 2017 (Happy New Year) I was lucky to catch the visit of Japanese TV & Radio presenter Chris Matsumura to the Worlds End shop.
Here he is kindly modelling the Bondage Shirt that he bought today.
It is the first time that he has been in the shop & he said that the shops interior reminded him of Alice in Wonderland.
Although he of course is based in Japan (he’s flying back there later tonight), Chris’s father was a diplomat & Chris lived abroad a lot when he was young, being born in The Hague & spending 3-4 years at a Primary School in Wimbledon here in London.
Having done many varied things in his media career, Chris has now become a respected music critic & reviewer, work that he really enjoys. He has just covered the latest Rolling Stones album & in 2 weeks he will be interviewing Bryan Adams. He also writes about all the top Japanese musicians such as Tatsuro Yamashita.
Thank you Chris & lots of luck for the coming year.
