Statement to voters
Chris Copeman Green Party Candidate for Weaver Vale
This election comes at a time when Britain is on the brink of crashing out of Europe with no deal. Not what was voted for at the referendum. The education system and National Health services are under threat from underfunding, while large sums are spent on free schools, often in areas where they are least needed. Climate change and environmental degradation threaten the UK and vulnerable people round the world.
Rather than responding to these issues the Government is cutting funding for schools in Cheshire, resulting in huge class sizes, and pushing our local hospitals into crisis.
They are forcing industrial scale gas extraction on our countryside, despite majority opposition in Cheshire, whilst cutting renewable energy.
The Green Party offers a brighter more sustainable alternative. We want a second referendum with an option to stay in the EU if the deal reached isn’t good for the Britain. We want to see schools and hospitals properly funded and an affordable, reliable public transport system as found in the rest of Europe. We want to see action taken to tackle air pollution in our cities and towns and our roads made safe for pedestrians and cyclists.
I believe there is a different way of doing things, and I’m standing to make a difference. I am standing for the things that matter, the people of this country and the world; I’m standing for a properly funded education system; I’m standing for a housing policy that ensures our houses do not contribute to global warming; I’m standing for policies that protect and enhance the planet we live on.
I’m standing for the things that matter. If they matter to you, then please stand with me and vote Green.
