The Green Party don't have the same level of financial backing that the other parties have, therefore we lack the money required to stand MPs all over the UK. We are raising money in order to make a competitive campaign in Plymouth Sutton & Devonport, a constituency in which we achieved 7.1% and 3401 votes in 2015. In 2017, we really do believe we can improve on this result.
Dan, our candidate, and the Green Party, stands for:
- Fight for a publicly funded, publicly provided health service free at the point of use.
- End the creeping privatisation of the NHS and repeal the Health and Social Care Act 2012.
- Make mental health a much higher priority with resources to match this status.
- End austerity and restore the public sector, creating over one million good jobs that pay at least a living wage.
- Pay for this with a new wealth tax on the top 1%, a Robin Hood Tax on the banks and the closure of tax loopholes.
- Increase the minimum wage to reach a living wage of £10 an hour by 2020.
- Abolish the cruel and unfair bedroom tax.
- Build 500,000 social rented homes across the country by 2020 and bring empty homes back into use to ensure everyone has access to an affordable place to live.
- Cap rent and introduce longer tenancies to provide greater protection for renters.
- Take serious action on climate change by working with other countries to ensure global temperatures do not rise beyond 2 degrees.
- Phase out fossil-fuel based energy generation and nuclear power.
- Invest in a public programme of renewable generation, flood defences and building insulation.
- Scrap university tuition fees.
- Promote a comprehensive system of local schools offering mixed ability teaching staffed by qualified teachers.
- Bring Academies and Free Schools into the Local Authority system.
- Return the railways to public hands to stop profits being put before passengers.
- Introduce an immediate cut in fares of 10% to give passengers a much-needed financial break.
- Promote walking and cycling to help reduce pollution and improve people’s health.
