Candidate for Feltham and Heston
Tony Firkins is the Green Party candidate in Feltham and Heston in the next General Election. Tony also stood in the 2015 and 2017 elections for the same seat.
Tony has lived in Brentford for over 30 years. Until recently he worked for a mobile phone network operator, specializing in the overall reliability of the service and the IT systems that make it all work. Tony now concentrates his time on the Green Party’s climate and energy policies.
Tony’s major environmental interest is the climate emergency and the policies required to address it. We must prevent world temperatures rising more than 1.5 degrees C to avoid a dangerous and unpredictable world for ourselves and future generations. This requires actions internationally, nationally and locally which cut across many policy areas including transport, industry, housing, the economy and education. Green Party policies in all these areas enable climate chaos to be countered while building a better society.
In particular, Tony will campaign for strengthening international agreements that actually add up to effective world-wide climate action that is equitable for both the UK and other nations.
Tony campaigns for no expansion to Heathrow airport.
Tony campaigns to phase in sustainable energy and phase out the fossil fuel economy.
Tony will campaign locally for higher priority to be put on provision for cycling and walking in London. This campaign will be allied to better air quality and more public green spaces.
