Vote For Positive Policies

It was encouraging that millions watched the ‘Prime Minister’s Debate’. Sadly this was an empty exercise in political point scoring, mostly negative. It failed to address the serious issues that all the inhabitants of our small planet face.

In the ‘Vote for Policies’ campaign, 133,000 people so far have voted for policies without knowing the party label. Of these, 28% have voted for the Greens’ positive policies.  The Green vote is surging in council by-elections, with the Party winning in Suffolk and ahead in Brighton for a Westminster seat.

Greens offer an alternative to cuts, address inequalities of wealth and opportunity, and face up to climate change. We offer a ‘Green New Deal’, an honestly-costed alternative to the failed approach of the ‘Big Three’.

As the Greens are the only other party offering a full UK manifesto, our leader Caroline Lucas should be at the fourth podium, bringing reality to the empty debates. Imagine her impact alongside the establishment parties!

The Green Party? That’s Just The Environment Party, Right?

Wrong! It’s about people, the community, and the economy as well.

We don’t just want to save the planet. We want to make life so much better for the people living on it!

Some of the Green’s other policies:

  • A maximum wage as well as a minimum one.
  • Expand the NHS, no more privatisations.
  • British troops out of Afghanistan.
  • Massive investment in public transport and renewable energy, creating hundreds of thousands of jobs and reducing the risk of climate change.
  • More help to reduce global poverty, help poor countries fight climate change.
  • Make the rich pay higher taxes and cut the basic rate.
  • Make the banks, that we bailed out, provide finance to rebuild and transform the economy.

Agree with any of this? VOTE GREEN

Caroline Lucas, Leader of The Green Party, speaking at GP Conference said:

“The people of this country are desperate for change. The only problem is that the main parties haven’t changed. The change the public is demanding simply isn’t on offer from the others. They’re all content with the kind of deregulated turbo-capitalism that has plunged us into recession, and all just as eager to get back to precisely the business as usual that led to the economic and environmental collapse. We are the Party that is ready to address the grave challenges this country faces, from tackling climate change to restoring faith in public services to restoring our reputation as a force for peace and justice internationally.”

Here in Derbyshire:

Peter Allen is Green Party Candidate in the High Peak. Peter says:

“The Green Party offers a programme for a whole new way of living, based on social justice and sustainable development.”

Lee Fletcher is Green Party Candidate in Erewash. Lee says:

“This election is about us, our society, our future. I want to see fairness and justice put back onto the political agenda. A better world for us all.”

Josh Stockell is Green Party Candidate in Derbyshire Dales. Josh says:

“Politics as usual has made our problems, more of the same won’t help us now. Greens offer a different approach, we have to take this, it will work.”

There are Green Party candidates standing all over Britain.

Press Release on behalf of Peter Allen, Green Party Candidate, High Peak

It is well known that the Green Party cares for the environment. What is less well known is our full range of policies covering social policy, the economy and global issues. High Peak Green Party Candidate Peter Allen and his team will be out on the streets during the next few weeks telling voters about these other Green Party policies.

“We don’t just want to save the planet, we want to make life so much better for people living on it” says Peter.

The Green Party has a fully-costed programme to transform Britain into a self-reliant, fair and sustainable country that contributes to making a fairer world. Among its policy commitments are:

  • A massive investment programme in public transport, renewable energy and social care, creating a million jobs in a Green New Deal
  • Expanding and defending the NHS and stopping further privatisation.
  • More money to fight world poverty, and to help poor countries combat climate change.
  • Bringing the troops home from Afghanistan and cancelling Trident.
  • Fairer taxes based on the ability to pay, and a clamp down on tax avoidance. Require banks to reinvest in sustainable projects.

The problems we face are enormous, and climate change threatens our very survival. The business-as-usual policies, offered by the other parties, will fail again. Now is a time of opportunity for us to work together to develop the answers to problems that affect us and our children.

“The obsession with economic growth at any cost must be replaced by sustainable development, and a fair distribution of the world’s resources” says Peter.

Green Party members will be leafleting in Glossop on Saturday morning (6th) in New Mills (13th), Chapel (20th) and Buxton (27th).
