Whose is backing Derek Wall for Windsor in the General Election
"Derek Wall has worked tirelessly to promote green politics, every vote he receives in the Windsor constituency will strenghten the case for an ecological alternative. We need an alternative to the traditional political parties whose policies have failed to deliver economic stability, equality or policies to protect future generations, Derek provides voters in Windsor with such an alternative please support his campaign" - Caroline Lucas, Green Party MEP for the South East
"The Greens have now replaced Labour as the most progressive party in British politics. We Greens are the only party that wholeheartedly defends public services and working people. We've got the best policies to stop climate change and to ensure a clean, healthy and safe environment. I urge disillusioned Labour voters to come over to the Greens and vote for Derek Wall." - Peter Tatchell, Human Rights Campaigner
"At a time in electoral politics when so many people say “what is the point in voting, they are all the same” When lots of those who do vote it is often for the one they consider ‘not as bad as the others’. The voters of Windsor will have the chance to vote for someone of real integrity sound politics and a belief in a better, safer greener Windsor and the world. That person is Derek Wall." - Jerry Hicks, Unite the Union candidate for the General Secretary election.
"Derek Wall provides a radical difference to discredited, mainstream politicians. Authentic politics is about change, people, the planet, animals and the entirety of our lives. Politics can only be good and purposeful, if it has ethical minded individuals driving it. I am endorsing Derek Wall as a person who I positively respect for his active commitment to justice for animals and the planet, for social justice and economic empowerment of ordinary people as against big business and corporations. Derek is a new and fresh type of politician. By voting for Derek, you will be voting for that change!" - Jagdeesh Singh, Sikh Environmental Network, Slough
"Derek Wall brings a level of green thinking that is urgently needed in the world today. As a political economist with a finger on the pulse of national and international events, his presence in Parliament would benefit us all. I strongly urge people to vote for him in Britain's upcoming general election" - Nandor Tanczos, former New Zealand Green Party MP
"British politics has hit an all time low in the eyes of the public. And for good reason. Our politicians betrayed us by uncritically following America into illegal wars, causing untold pain and suffering to families here and abroad. They sat idly by as the banks recklessly gambled billions on the financial markets, creating the conditions for the current recession. Too many have become tainted and discredited by sleaze and expenses abuse.
We need politicians who put the common good before themselves and their party. Derek Wall is such a person. He has a passionate commitment to social justice, both here and abroad. He has a long record of campaigning for a cleaner, healthier and balanced environment. I am proud to support him and I urge you to do likewise. It’s no good just complaining about our current crop of MP’s. It’s time to change them! Please give Derek Wall your full support and help elect an MP you could feel proud of." - Salma Yaqoob, Respect Party leader and Birmingham Councillor.
