With politicians in Westminster currently wrangling over whether/when to call a general election, the Green Party in Tatton has prepared itself and announced its candidate.
Greens in Tatton have chosen campaigner and local resident Nigel Hennerley to stand in the general election, which may take place within the next few weeks.
The Green Party believes that the only sensible thing to do, given the ongoing turmoil surrounding the UK’s exit from the EU is to go back to the people to allow them to vote for the deal they want.
Local parliamentary candidate Nigel said: “This situation has been dealt to us from a fractured Conservative Party, which has infected the whole country.
“We must now allow the country an opportunity to resolve this crisis.”
He added: “Moving forward, climate change needs to be central to all our plans.
“Next year will see the 26th Conference of Parties – the UN conference on climate change – taking place in the UK.
“This may well be our last chance to avert irreversible climate chaos for our children’s generation and beyond.
“Schemes like HS2 contradict what the science tells us. Ever more airport expansion and economic growth based on business as usual.
“The challenge is how we can thrive sustainably and perhaps swap GDP for Greater Wellbeing.
“Using enormous amounts of energy just to travel a bit quicker is no alternative to better public transport links and improving existing rail services.”
