This is how I'm going to vote - Gary Stevenson

Brought to you by Penguin.

In this bestselling audiobook read by the author, Gary Stevenson relives his time on the trading floor with raw honesty, gritty humour and true conviction.

An outrageous, white-knuckle journey to the dark heart of an intoxicating world - from someone who survived the trading game and then blew it all wide open

Ever since he was a kid, kicking broken footballs on the streets of East London in the shadow of Canary Wharf's skyscrapers, Gary wanted something better. Something a whole lot bigger.

Then he won a competition run by a bank: 'The Trading Game'. The prize: a golden ticket to a new life, as the youngest trader in the whole city. A place where you could make more money than you'd ever imagined. Where your colleagues are dysfunctional maths geniuses, overfed public schoolboys and borderline psychopaths, yet they start to feel like family. Where soon you're the bank's most profitable trader, dealing in nearly a trillion dollars. A day. Where you dream of numbers in your sleep - and then stop sleeping at all.

But what happens when winning starts to feel like losing? When the easiest way to make money is to bet on millions becoming poorer and poorer - and, as the economy starts slipping off a precipice, your own sanity starts slipping with it? You want to stop, but you can't. Because nobody ever leaves.

Would you stick, or quit? Even if it meant risking everything?

This is an outrageous, unvarnished, white-knuckle journey to the dark heart of an intoxicating world - from someone who survived the game and then blew it all wide open.

Stop Targeting Me!

The general election is on 4 July. Right up until the polls open, political parties are competing for your time and attention so they can win your vote.

And they’re using your personal data to do it. Your age, your interests, the house you live in, if you’re married, whether you voted in the last election. Personal data you probably didn’t know they had – and almost certainly didn’t agree they could use.

Political parties use this information to profile and target you – and people like you – so they can tell you only what they think you want to hear. It’s political puppeteering. And it’s totally in the dark.

You have the legal right to stop them. You can take action to shine a light on all the data they have on you and demand they stop using it.

Now what if your neighbour does this too? And your colleague, your cousin, your friend, their friend. Together, our power is stronger to demand transparency and integrity from political parties this election.

And if they ignore you, there will be consequences. If they don’t stop using your data, together we can take them to court.

Let’s defend democracy from data dark arts.
