Climate Change is the biggest threat facing mankind, and we need to act now to avert complete climate chaos. I pledge to make climate action the central point of my general election campaign.

Other parties and the media will centre the debate around Brexit, however there can be no politics on a dead planet. I've passionately campaigned about climate change for many years before being elected to BCP council with climate action as one of my main priorities. Shortly after which, myself and Cllr Simon Bull proposed a motion to declare a climate emergency which passed with the support of all but one councillor.

Now is the time to take that message to parliament. 

I pledge to:

  • Act urgently upon the climate emergency, as there are no politics on a dead planet.
  • Support a peoples vote on Brexit, with an option to remain on the ballot.
  • Defend our NHS, fight to maintain its public ownership, increase it's funding and treat mental and physical health equally.
  • Stop austerity, it has not and will never work, and has only served to increase homelessness, increase food bank use, and increase the wealth of the 1%.
  • Demand a reform to our voting system, with a fair proportional representation system, so that everyone in this country has their vote heard, and is represented in Westminster

Chris is a passionate environmental campaigner and Green Party Councillor for Winton East on BCP Council. Chris is standing in Christchurch for a second time. A 10-year resident of this conurbation, Chris is a local Extinction Rebellion facilitator, trustee of SOS Save Our Shores, and a seasoned Greenpeace activist. He won election as BCP's second Green councillor in May 2019 by a landslide in Winton East, with 55% of the vote, and successfully co-proposed BCP's Climate & Ecological Emergency declaration. 

All of the money donated to this campaign will be spent on spreading the Green message in Christchurch. Thank you for any help you can give.
