I love campaigning in Sutton Coldfield, I’ve been an environmental activist for over a decade now and it is an honour to stand for Parliament. Right now, I work as a contractor in the construction sector where I advise on sustainability and renewable engineering. I will bring this experience to Sutton Town Centre redevelopment and the Langley expansion: they both need to have sustainability and renewable energy at the heart of their designs to bring construction into a carbon neutral future.
I believe in the Green Party’s vision for change. I believe in a fairer, more just society, one where all people are treated with dignity and we no longer accept poverty on our streets. There were over 12,000 people recorded as homeless in Birmingham last year and every one of them is a sign of our economy and government’s structural failure. I believe in a radical change to put people and planet first instead of shareholders and GDP figures. I will campaign to reverse the political cuts to vital public services that have led so many to desperation and misery.
On Europe I say yes to the EU, yes to free movement and yes to prosperity. But I am also a democrat, I can see the only way of getting through Brexit is to ask the people what outcome they want and work forwards from there.
A vote for the Green party is a vote to stop destroying the planet; we are the only party championing the real change that can halt global warming. You don’t have to be an environmental scientist to see that Climate Change is not an abstract problem: it is visible today on our doorsteps, the warmest, wettest and wildest weather on record. If we want to save the UK from such consequences as storms, floods, rising food prices and insurance premiums, we must act now!
Freedom of Movement
Whether we travel for work, for study, for love, or for any of a hundred other reasons, we are all enriched by freedom of movement
An extreme Brexit puts many of the environmental protection laws we currently have at risk
The terms of Brexit weren’t on the ballot paper. We need a people’s vote on the final deal and our place in Europe
