Some will tell you that ‘green’ issues are a luxury in times of
economic hardship. Wrong. Green policies are essential if we are
to get out of this mess and create a sustainable and fair economy.
Our vision is of a fairer society that meets everyone’s needs,
and an economy working with nature rather than against it.
Of a more equal society. Of higher incomes for pensioners rather
than bonuses for bankers. Of quieter, cleaner, safer streets.
Of stronger local communities and the space for children to play
and learn. Of healthier, safer, better food and the quality time
to appreciate it. Of a natural world left more to itself.
This dream is achievable. All it requires is political courage – and
popular democratic backing for that courage. Only the Greens
want to see the back of rampant inequality, deregulation and
laissez-faire. Only the Greens have understood the lessons of
the financial crisis, and know what to do about it. Only the Green
Party has a vision for Britain that will see a better quality of life
