I'm standing for parliament for the Greens in Battersea. I want to write to every home in the consituency warning them of what's to come.

 New stretch target

With extra funds we could take out digital advertising for the campaign

I'm a father of two and what I want more than anything is for my children to grow old on a broadly liveable planet.

I moved to Battersea six years ago. During the last general election, I went along to the Battersea Climate Emergency hustings. None of the people standing to be our MP understood that we're on a pathway to catastrophe. None of them had a plan for what to do about it. It was then that I realised I should stand in this election.

Politicians and the media tell us life can carry on pretty much as normal. That's not true. We need a World War II-sized mobilisation to change our entire society, or we will experience its collapse.

Our politicians have failed in their most fundamental duty - to keep us and our children safe.

Our political system has failed to deal with this crisis.  

So what now?

Yes I would like people to vote for me in what is almost certain to be a safe Labour seat this time. But that's not enough. So I'm planning to write to every home in Battersea warning people of what's to come and urging them to get involved in a new Battersea Popular Assembly.

We, the people of Battersea, need to come together, get to know each other, organise and prepare for the challenges ahead - including food shortages, frequent flooding, extreme heat and extreme storms - and start building a better society.

I'm aiming to raise the funds to print 60,000 copies of my letter, and also for the £500 deposit to stand in the election. Any funds not used in the election campaign will be passed to Wandsworth Green Party.
