Vote for hope, vote Green today

 

 

Jonathan Bartley, Green Party co-leader has set out why a Green vote matters. He has said:

“No matter where you’re casting your vote on election day, you have the chance to put issues you care about on the agenda – from climate change to Brexit. Only the Green Party will fix the NHS crisis and invest in education.

“My message to voters ahead of tomorrow is to vote with your heart, and vote Green. If we wake up to a Conservative government on June 9, Green MPs will hold them to account, whether it’s by calling out the government for bringing the NHS to its knees or fighting an extreme Brexit. We’d be making sure a Labour government delivered on the bold promises in its manifesto – and taking them even further.

“I’m calling on people across the UK to vote not just for the MP they want, but the kind of country they want. The Green Party stands for a caring a confident country, that invests in public services, protects the environment and would give the people of Britain a say on the final Brexit deal. We’ll always stand up for what matters and fight for an inclusive, tolerant society with a positive vision for a sustainable future.”

Vote with your heart for a decent future. Vote Green in Leeds West. Thank you.

This is the Green Guarantee: A set of commitments that Green MPs will deliver to create a confident and caring Britain.Our Green Guarantee

The Green Party has big, bold ideas to create a confident and caring Britain that we can all be proud of. We aren’t afraid to hope for a better future or to be honest about how we get there. We believe in being brave, in speaking our minds, and in standing up for what matters. We are proud to do politics differently.

Imagine a government that trusts in our common humanity and our capacity to govern ourselves. Imagine a government that believes that the best way forward is by working with each other, rather than against each other. Imagine a government that prioritises the rights of citizens and the environment over those of corporations. Imagine a government that gives everyone a chance and leaves nobody behind in a confident and caring Britain. That’s the kind of government we would work for.

-We will fight for equality, and for a society where nobody is left behind.
-We will always act strongly on climate change and to protect the natural world we love.

Green Party General Election Priorities

We get that right now the world seems a pretty scary place. And what makes it worse is the feeling we all have that events are completely out of our control.

We get that. We get that politics is off-putting. We get that voting sometimes seems pointless and that it’s not always easy to tell one politician from the next.

And we understand that after you’ve been told you can’t change anything about politics well, you’re going to start believing it.

At times like these we have to dig deep.

The Green Party is the only party committed to stepping outside that box with the “Old Politics” sign on it.

The moment the election was announced we reached out to other progressive parties and asked to talk about an alliance that could prevent the Conservatives being returned to power. Stuck with a vision of a political reality that no longer exists, that invitation was rejected.

We were disappointed but not deterred. We don’t believe in playing games. We believe that progress, prosperity, and people’s rights are more important than party politics. Our values are what drive us and guide us.

Which means that at this election – in fact, at any election – if you vote Green you know what you are getting.

Our Co-Leader Caroline Lucas has, on multiple occasions, been named MP of the year. Jonathan Bartley stood with residents of his home borough of Lambeth and stopped the demolition of an historic social housing estate. Our Assembly Members in London introduced the first living wage. Our MEPs secured the introduction of a Europe-wide cap on bankers’ bonuses following the financial crash. Our councillors in Sheffield took the courageous step of increasing council tax in order to pay for increased support for the poorest 30,000 families in the city.

So while the government is convinced that it’s either May’s way or the highway, we want Britain to take a new direction.

We want to create a confident and caring Britain. One that spends its wealth on our health; that inspires children, supports students, and listens to parents; that stands by teachers; and stands up for what it believes in.

If you share that vision, please vote for us on June 8th and together we will change politics and change Britain.

  • Stand up for renters
  • Stand up for our NHS
  • Stand up for young people
  • Stand up for our rights
  • Stand up for our environment
