300 Green Party Parliamentary candidates

According to the national website, 301 candidates have been selected so far, and of course in Brighton Pavilion, Lewisham Deptfore and Norwich South, we are in an excellent position to win.

If you want to get involved in my campaign join my General Election Facebook here.

The Manifesto for the General Election is going to be an impressive document, it has been drafted by Andrew Dobson, who is a Professor of green politics (literallly) and was my Phd examiner.
