Greens offer a 'message of hope'

The Green Party are going into the 2015 General Election offering a ‘message of hope’, according the party leader Natalie Bennett. Ms Bennett, who has overseen a steep increase in membership of The Green Party, has today focussed on the ‘real alternative’ offered by her party. As campaigning started she pledged to ‘reconfigure the economy to work for everyone’ and rid the NHS of private companies.

Commenting Natalie Bennett said: "This general election is the closest in a generation. It's clear that people are sick of business-as-usual politics, and desperate for change. The Green Party represents a real alternative to the politics and economics espoused by establishment politicians for decades. 

Ms Bennett also commented: "Over the next few weeks Green candidates up and down the country will be sharing our message of hope. We'll be the only party offering changes that genuinely reconfigure our economy to work for everyone, not just those at the top. We're the only ones demanding a genuinely public NHS - free from profit making companies. And, of course, we promise the bold steps required to tackle the looming climate crisis.

On May 7th voters have a real choice. Over the coming weeks the Green Party will be fighting in more constituencies than ever, offering people a chance to vote for what they believe in." Natalie Bennett added.

The Green Party, focusing on Bristol, where they are hoping to pick up a second MP. Membership of Bristol Green Party recently passed 2,015 – making it 800% larger than it was this time last year – giving the party huge momentum in the local area.

Commenting Darren Hall, Green PPC for Bristol West, said: Conversations on the doorstep confirm that a substantial number of residents in Bristol West are intending to vote Green. People are realising that tactical voting will not achieve real change. For these reasons, we are confident we can win in Bristol West. With just 36 days to go we can see the light at the end of the tunnel - and it’s flickering green.”
