Statement to voters
Hi.I am Adrian Holmes, a former city councillor and I'm standing for the Green Party in Norwich North. I grew up in Norfolk and went to local state schools before graduating as a geophysicist. We are facing a crisis that will affect the future of everybody in the UK and the rest of the world. We have to tackle global warming now for the sake of future generations. We can't do that without a more inclusive, fairer society, where everybody has
a decent standard of living and access to free public healthcare and education.
As a parent, I understand the problems young people are facing today, whether in finding work or continuing their education. Equally, I understand the challenges facing carers having to take time off work to look after elderly or infirm relatives. We need a financial safety net that supports all of us, whatever we do.The Green Party is unique in supporting the introduction of a basic income for all. The government would pay every citizen a small amount of money to provide that safety net. With a basic income we could eradicate poverty in this country overnight. Parts of Norwich North have child poverty levels of over 40% and I find this wholly unacceptable. We need a radical alternative to the status quo politics of other parties, to fight inequality and poverty. If you want to elect a real alternative voice to the mainstream, please vote for me on June 8th.
