Candidate for Bexleyheath and Crayford
I first became actively engaged with politics before the last General Election in 2015, when I came to the realisation that economic inequality was getting worse by the day. Successive governments have defended the needs of the wealthy and powerful, whilst blaming the poor, disabled, migrants and refugees for crises in education, housing, healthcare, welfare and employment. Governments are supposed to keep a close eye on capitalism; not spur it on as it spirals out of control.
I decided that if our two largest political parties aren’t willing to stand up for what matters, I’d need to find one that is.
Having spent some time reading a few manifestos, including Conservative, Labour, Liberal Democrat, UKIP and the BNP, I was pretty disappointed. Then I stumbled upon the Green Party manifesto. I expected to find a single-issue party, but was astonished to find a whole range of brave, bold and ambitious policies which confront economic and social inequality head on, rather than settling for the status quo. Ticking every one of my boxes, it was almost like I wrote the manifesto myself!
Fast-forward to 2017, and I’m incredibly proud to be standing as a General Election candidate for the Green Party.
