Rachel’s priorities if elected are to:
- Take real action to tackle the climate emergency, if we want to have a future then we need a new green industrial revolution
- Put power back into people's hands through giving people a say on whether to accept any Brexit deal or remain in the EU and introducing a fair proportional election system for parliament
- Invest in good mental health services, particularly for women in the postnatal period
- Provide affordable childcare from aged 1, when parents go back to work from parental leave
