Party: Green Party
what do you think is the most important issue in this election?
Climate Change, Peace and Public Services
why did you make the decision to stand in this constituency and for
this party (as an independent)?
The Green Party philosophy very closely matches my own. It
is the only party that thinks long-term.
what kind of vote are you expecting on May 5th?
Who knows? There are five candidates in Waveney.
If the electorate realise that only one of these candidates truly

There may be instances when military intervention by an

we have been involved with in recent years have been the appropriate
way to achieve the stated goals.
There is very little left to privatise in this country, if you had
what would be brought into public hands?
Railways and Water
Some environmental campaigners have started talking about nuclear
power as a way to bring down CO2 emissions - what do you think of
Nuclear waste, and the risk of nuclear accidents make this
an unsustainable option. Renewable energy (wind, solar, tidal) and
massive energy conservation are essential.
Asylum and immigration will be central issues in this election.
What action on this issue would you like to see the next government
"Asylum and immigration" are symptoms of an unsafe and
unjust world. We need to tackle global poverty and conflict to
ensure nobody feels forced to take the enormous risks associated
with migrating to a richer or safer country.
What question do you wish was on this list but doesn't appear?
