Climate & Energy
The Green Party has long recognised the importance of putting the environment at the heart of all policy-making. But we have run out of time and can no longer take baby steps in tackling the climate emergency. This is a #ClimateElection.
I voted to remain and reform, and still believe it’s possible. I back a People’s vote, but we need to address the reasons why people voted to leave.
Health & public services
Our NHS is being dismantled right under our noses, a process that has continued under successive Labour and Conservative Governments. Meanwhile, our police and fire services are unable to cope with cuts forced on them by austerity measures.
As someone who lived in social housing as a child, and now rents privately, I'm very much aware of both the importance of social housing and the pressure on generation rent. I would do everything in my power to rebalance our housing needs.
I believe that an educated society benefits us all. Failure to provide enough funding for education will store up problems for the UK in the future. But it's not just about the funding, the education system itself needs reviewing.
Jobs & Economy
Our economy does not work for many people on In-work benefits and poverty pay. We also have to acknowledge that endless economic growth is not sustainable, and automation will continue to have a major impact on job security.
The link between transport and environmental policies are self-evident, but it's an area that can leave other parties in conflict as they try to meet all their promises.
Peace & Defence
I'm a supporter of CAAT (Campaign Against the Arms Trade) and CND (Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament) and believe that peace will be achieved not through a show of strength, but through equality and social justice.
UK politics is a pathetic state right now, gamesmanship between our main parties has brought us to a standstill, and many people are still angry that their voices go unheard.
