Statement to voters
I am a maths teacher, living in Failsworth and working in Oldham. I am an active member of the community, organising regular "Canal Clean Up" events and arranging music for a local choir. I have been the co-ordinator of the local Green Party since January.
I am strongly opposed to the government's welfare reforms, which have left hundreds of thousands dependent on foodbanks. People in Tameside and Oldham have been used as guinea pigs for Universal Credit, and have suffered under a culture of frivolous sanctions, unacceptable delays and inhuman work capability assessments. The safety net of previous generations is being removed, leaving a lot of people to struggle.
I want to put the environment on the agenda at this election. The government has failed to protect people from air pollution, has ignored the will of the people by forcing through permission for fracking in Lancashire, and has slashed funding for renewable technologies.
I am strongly in favour of a second referendum on the terms of the Brexit deal. The people of the UK voted to leave the EU, but they didn't vote to throw away environmental protections and worker’s rights. Nor did they vote to turn the Britain into a tax haven for the rich. We need strong voices in parliament fighting to keep the best bits of the EU in any Brexit deal, and committing to a ratification referendum after the negotiations.
