Statement to voters

    Phil Neve, 65, grew up in the Midlands but has been a resident of North Somerset for 35 years.

    Full statement

    He holds degrees in oceanography, underwater
    science and sustainable architecture. His career has included working as a scientist, cook, business owner, and energy consultant He has two grown children and now works delivering ultra low energy houses, as well as finding time to run a community allotment and to be a local Parish Councillor.
    Phil cares passionately about the whole Green agenda, but feels particularly that our political and economic systems are broken, and have led to many of the challenges we face today: greater inequality, environmental degradation, the placing of corporate power and profit above people, and the now discredited but still widespread belief that economic growth will cure all ills.
    A commitment to defending our NHS, addressing housing needs and above all, tackling the climate crisis are core parts of the portfolio of issues he wants to address.
    If elected to Parliament, Phil would work for the common good, for the whole community, environment and infrastructure that provides for and allows all to prosper and thrive. Coming generations deserve both hope and a world fit to live in.
    Phil says, “We have 19th century type politicians with outdated 20th century thinking failing to deal with 21st century issues. The status quo, the old ways, have put us in a dangerous place.
    We have very little time to make major change and avoid even greater damage. I now know we have no other choice than to stop denying and delaying and start acting.”
