Green Party Deputy Leader campaign: Alan's Frontline Five

I am pleased to tell you that I am officially confirmed as running for Green Party Deputy Leader, along with six other candidates (three men, three women) from across England and Wales.

Here is why you should vote for me:

1. I believe the Green Party can and will be a potential party of government in Britain over the next two years. Now more than ever does our country need systematic, fundamental change, and we are the ones who can implement that change for the better. We need to make ourselves a party that can be trusted with the economy, with our NHS, to deliver a fair welfare system, to have an effective approach to crime, and to deliver a fair immigration system whilst still advocating our four green pillars of ecological wisdom, social justice, grassroots democracy and nonviolence.

2. I promise to ensure that Green Party members in all areas-rural, urban, and metropolitan-are properly supported so that we can be available as an alternative everywhere in England and Wales.
3.I believe that green politics is for everyone in the UK and can work for everyone, no matter who they are or where they are. It has been shown that green politics has support from all corners, from places as far afield as Weymouth, Leominster, York, Brighton, and Rochford I will help further this aim by linking the green vision more with the everyday concerns of voters in the UK, and help push environmental issues further into voters’ consciousness by making better use of media coverage and getting a wider array of spokespeople speaking on programmes like Question Time.
4. I will ensure that there are good relations between all groups in the Green Party of England and Wales, whatever their age, ethnicity, gender, orientation, disability, religious beliefs, position within the party, or any other circumstances, so that we can all work together for the common good and for our green vision. In particular, I believe in greater candidate diversity of all types.

5. I will help the Green Party represent the voices of the dispossessed and those hurt by austerity and elitism most, including young people and disabled people like myself. I also believe the Green Party should be the ones to promote acceptance and real understanding of neurodiversity in society (encompassing autism, ADHD, and other neurodevelopmental differences).
