A Green MP for Lewisham West and Penge

Help us get Crystal Palace Park, traffic, housing costs and railways talked about in this election by raising the deposit and leaflet costs.

We did it!

On 26th Jan 2015 we successfully raised £1,591 of £500 target with 43 supporters in 42 days

New stretch target

Let's go for £1,500!

Thank you to everyone who helped me raise the money for my election deposit!

This means you are guaranteed to get a fresh, Green voice into the debates.

Bromley Green Party now wants to raise another £1,000 to pay for a freepost leaflet and some other expenses to make sure we can get the Green Party's message onto every doorstep in the constituency.

I can make sure that issues you care about, and that others won't raise, are talked about in this General Election.

The Green Party won't get a Chinese millionnaire developer offering £500 million for half of Crystal Palace Park, but your help raising £500 will help Bromley Green Party pay my deposit so I can talk about the threat to the park from the ZhongRong Group and Boris Johnson.

In every hustings, public meeting and media interview I will be able to pledge to save Crystal Palace Park and other green spaces from over-development, and push the other candidates to match this pledge.

The Green Party may be excluded from the TV debates, but with your help Bromley Green Party will be able to raise enough money to put a leaflet on every doorstep in my constituency.

This will let me talk about the rising house prices and rents, the high levels of traffic, and the expensive and unreliable train services, and your money will help us promote ideas the others won't mention, like rent controls and curbs on property speculation, and bringing the railways back into public ownership.

I've already been tackling these problems. Over the summer I measured unhealthy air pollution levels around Crystal Palace and Anerley, and have won the support of hundreds of shopkeepers and residents to get less polluting buses on our main roads.

Business supporting our campaign

I need your help to make sure the other politicians don't ignore these issues, or sit on the fence on important questions about the park's future.

Thank you.
