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.
