I'm standing as the Green Party's candidate in Tooting. Help me deliver leaflets to 50,000 voters, asking them to vote Green.

by Nick Humberstone in London, Greater London, United Kingdom

Politics has gone stale. Two old parties, empty of ideas, just working to get soundbites to publish on socials.

I offer something different. The Green Party offers something different. Fresh ideas, bold approaches, and ambitious proposals. Politics can be so much better than it is.

Every donation makes a difference. Here's how:

  • Your donation gets a Green candidate for Parliament able to challenge the old parties
  • By helping Nick Humberstone to stand, your donation enables all the votes they receive to translate into government funding for the Green MPs elected elsewhere
  • If Nick Humberstone retains their deposit, those funds come back and can be spent by the Green Party again, so we can keep building strength both locally and nationally

Here's what your day could look like with Green policies in place:

- You wake up, with more energy than before because you now work a 4-day week (with no loss of pay). You make yourself a delicious breakfast, with many ingredients locally grown.

- You head out to work. You don't need an expensive car any more, you know a bus is only ever 2 minutes wait, and that it'll get you there faster than a car ever could now that the roads have cleared up.

- You decide to get off one stop early and walk through a new park, breathing clean air and enjoying the comfort of nature surrounding you.

- You arrive at your job, excited to contribute, because you've had the opportunity to retrain and reskill for free with support from the government. You're passionate about how you can make a difference.

- After work, you head off to play 5-a-side football with friends, not having to worry about lack of spaces because there's more community spaces now.

- You head home, this time taking the tube, which is less noisy than it used to be, and arrive quickly to your flat.

- As you open the door, you reflect how horrible renting used to be, and happy that rent controls were put in place and landlords kept in check.

- You decide to check your journal, updating your finances, working out when you might want to buy a house, or whether you want to start a business. You feel a lot more relaxed knowing that you could save enough even if you were on the £15 minimum wage.

- You go to sleep, in a warm home, which is well insulated keeping the bills down, and think about what you want to do with your 3-day weekend.

This may look like a dream in contrast to the day-to-day many of us experience right now. But all of this is possible, if we choose to make it happen. Politics is lacking ambition, set on keeping the status quo. But by voting Green, the future can be better than what is on offer right now.

Wandsworth Green Party is the recipient of all the funds raised by this crowdfunder.

If you make multiple donations to us, they may be aggregated for our reporting purposes.

Your details will appear in our election returns if valued over £500, and if you donate over £7500 your identity will appear on the Electoral Commission website.

Promoted by James Couper on behalf of Wandsworth Green Party, at 24 Sudlow Road, Wandsworth SW18 1HP.
