Statement to voters
Mr Wall, who has previously stood as a candidate in Windsor three times, said: “Green politics is the politics of survival. Things like climate change and the destruction of rainforests, and air pollution, they threaten our lives. “We know Maidenhead has breached pollution levels for nitrous oxide.
“The key thing is I want to defeat Theresa May because, rather than being strong, she’s wrong. What she wants is a blank cheque to do whatever she wants on Brexit.” He said the Green Party wanted Britain to remain in the European Union, but respected the voters' decision. He said: “What we want is a referendum on whatever comes out of the negotiations.
When asked what key issues concerned residents in the area, he said: “Heathrow – every vote for me is a clear vote to reject Heathrow expansion". Mr Wall is also opposed to the return of fox hunting.
