Statement to voters

I have been concerned about the environment since my teens in the 1970s when pollution was affecting our health and CFC’s were identified as responsible for depleting the ozone layer.
In the late 80’s, whilst working with bee keepers on a Kibbutz, I shared a room with a physicist who explained to me global warming and what scientists believed was happening as a result of burning fossil fuels. I started then to take an interest in what governments and environmentalists were doing to lessen the impact of climate change

I joined the Green Party to promote environmental policies and try to ensure that the future isn’t a barren wasteland of pillaged rainforests, contaminated countryside and lifeless oceans.
But in addition to the most important issues of sustainability, environmental protection and climate change is social justice, fairness and equality. A fantastic, healthy and vibrant planet is no legacy for future generations unless there is a responsible, educated and thriving population to enjoy it

I have lived in Romford for most of my life and was born in Oldchurch hospital
I attended St. Edwards C of E school and began my working life as an electrical technician but later I worked in residential care, insurance and adult education. For the past 17 years I have worked in graphics, photography and audio visual production.
If we want a farer world and a pleasant environment for future generations we need to think green and vote Green.
