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.
Here are six key reasons why you should vote for the Green Party on June 8th
We believe our public services should be properly funded and not sold off to the private sector. Our NHS, our schools, our libraries, our railways, should all be run for the benefit of everyone not just to make a profit for rich shareholders
Tories are using Brexit to cut workers’ rights, cut environmental protection and cut taxes for millionaires. This isn’t what people voted for in the referendum and we will fight against it. We are demanding that the people get the final say over whether to accept the final Brexit deal or stay in the EU. We are not denying democracy, we are demanding it.
We will take a stand to protect people who are being attacked because of their race, religion, sexuality, gender, or because they have a disability. We have more in common and we achieve more when we work together.
We won’t waste our energy on fighting each other or political point-scoring. We will work to achieve the best we can for you, supporting positive changes and providing a proper opposition to destructive government policies.
Green economics would provide more jobs, raise the minimum wage to a proper living wage, and provide genuinely affordable housing. We will restore fair taxes on big business and millionaires so that we all benefit from economic success.
Polluted air is killing thousands every year and we are demanding Government action. We will also defend our green spaces to protect them from greedy property developers. And we will take action on climate change to protect ourselves now and make sure we leave our children with a world fit to live in.
