I am a 28 year old postgraduate politics student at Keele University who also analyses elections in Britain and elsewhere in the world. I was recently selected as Green Party parliamentary candidate for Stoke-on-Trent North and I have been a Green Party parliamentary candidate before, having stood in Hemel Hempstead in 2015. With continuing Brexit-related Westminster chaos and unresolved issues, an early general election this year is increasingly likely. The Green Party is the only truly progressive voice in Stoke-on-Trent which also campaigns for action on man-made climate change and stands up for our environmental needs. A Green voice in Stoke-on-Trent North will also bring badly needed jobs and green industries to the area, which has suffered significantly from the loss of kilns and glassworks. Air pollution and heavy traffic are perennial problems in Stoke and the Green Party's commitment to sustainable public transport infrastructure will solve both these problems. We depend on individual donations and supporters, not big businesses like the other parties do. This means we can genuinely represent your concerns but it also means we need you to donate to us in order to make sure a Green voice can be heard in Stoke-on-Trent North. The money you raise will help ensure I can pay the deposit necessary to stand for election when the next general election comes. By making a donation you confirm that you are eligible to make political donations in the UK, and this donation is not made for or on behalf of any other person. All donations received are subject to the regulations of the Political Parties, Election and Referendums Act 2000.
