|The Green Party is not just about the environment, it is a social-minded party which
believes in a fair society, not a divided one.
- I am a long-term local resident: I live in Hammersmith & Fulham.
- I have a young family and I care about their future.
- I am passionate about environmental issues.
As I am sure you are aware, due to boundary changes you will be voting in the
brand-new Parliamentary seat of Hammersmith at the next general election. This
election will probably be one of the most important in recent decades and you have
the chance of voting for real change - and also sending a very strong message to
It is clear that the environment is changing and that this will affect us in our
lifetimes. It will of course definitely affect our children's lives with things like
rises in sea level, extreme hot and cold temperatures, fossil fuels running out, all
against a background of world population growth and food and water shortages.
Yet our current government seems unable to address these problems or argue for
Hammersmith being a new seat has a golden opportunity to send a strong message to
Parliament and the new Government that the environment does matter and that we need
to address Global Warming and Climate Change now - and that these are some of the
most important issues we shall face this century.
Unless we have some Green Members of Parliament to hold the other parties to account
and keep pushing and fighting for us all, Parliament will just keep fumbling along
with no real change. So if like me you are worried about your children's future - or
even about your own - then you must vote for me, you must vote for the Green Party
so that change happens.
Parliament itself needs to change; this "cosy" two party system is not working. If,
like me, you have been appalled over the last year at what our elected
representatives have been getting up to (fraud, lying and cheating over their
expenses) then voting for the Greens gives you a chance to send someone to
Parliament who believes in true values and working for the greater good.
Hammersmith needs someone who will be able to hold these corrupt career politicians
to account and report back to you on what actually happens in Parliament.
One more Tory or Labour or Liberal MP will not make a difference, but a Green one
