Statement to voters

"I’ve lived in Epsom and Ewell for 26 years, previously lectured in politics and community development in Africa, now a single mother, language teacher with a love of cats and walking. Concerned about inadequate social care, insufficient affordable housing, traffic congestion, air pollution and diminishing green spaces, I joined the Green Party in 2015.
It’s the only one that sees the pursuit of growth as shaped by social and environmental demands, rather than chased at their expense. I want to hear a government say we need an end to current austerity measures and to the privatisation of the NHS, the railways and public services generally. Our future is only sustainable for people and the planet if it invests in social business and broad community care, in renewable energy sources and local responsible farming, and so divests from fossil fuels, Trident and the arms trade, alongside showing zero tolerance to tax havens and corporate tax dodgers.
A good place to start bringing economic balance and respect for people and planet back onto the agenda, is by demanding a much higher level of transparency in policy making, including political lobbying."

“A big issue for the election campaign is making it easier for people to get around using public transport. Southern Rail has been an absolute blight for commuters and the Government hasn’t sorted out the issue. Privatisation of our railways hasn’t worked and it’s high time this huge national asset was taken back under state control. Why not when the government has been bailing them out to the tune of £4 billion per annum? Despite charging the highest fares in the world, our trains suffer the worst over-crowding in Europe: no wonder when 90% of the profits are returned to shareholders rather than being re-invested.”
Dr Janice Baker teaches at a local language school, previously lectured in politics and community development in Africa, and now lives with her son and two cats in Epsom.
