DIANA TOYNBEE - PARLIAMENTARY SPOKESPERSON FOR HEREFORD GREENS
I was proud to provide Hereford and South Herefordshire with a real choice on May 7th and to receive 7.2% of the vote, double the national Green average and a solid foundation for future local growth.
As austerity begins to bite harder, it's even more important that Hereford has a clear alternative voice, speaking out on poverty, climate change, transport, jobs, young people, health care and fair votes. So I am pleased that after the election, the local Green party elected me as their Parliamentary Spokesperson.
We are not going away. We are developing a strategy to grow the party and its influence over the coming years to promote Green policies and approaches to the serious issues we face. Although it is easy to be pessimistic, we believe real change is still coming. We'd like you to be a part of it - why not join us?
