 i.
 what do you think is the most important issue in  this election?

 Public services including affordable housing, Peace, Climate Change


 ii.
 why did you make the decision to stand in this constituency and for this  party (as an independent)?

 I find that the Green Party is the only Party which I feel at home in. Labour, Liberals and Conservatives are chasing votes, the Green Party has principles.


 iii.
 what kind of vote are you expecting on May 5th?

 I would naturally hope to be elected, with over 50% of the vote, but with the media exposure of the other parties so much greater than ours there is a lot to do!


 iv.
 aside from the vote what are you hoping to get out  of this campaign?

 No Green vote is a wasted vote, it raises awareness of the issues


 v.
 in your view what is the greatest threat to our civil liberties at the moment?

 The excuse of the War on Terror.


 vi.
 Blair has taken us to war three times since coming  to power (not including  the occasional ad hoc bombing raid) in the Balkans, Afghanistan and Iraq.  Can war ever be justified?

 Yes, unfortunately, war can be justified as long as there are people who will take away the liberty and freedom of others for their own profit and power. However, we MUST work within the United Nations. 


 vii.
 There is very little left to privatise in this country, if you had your way  what would be brought into public hands.

 Railways, Water, Electricity


 viii.
 Some environmental campaigners have started talking about nuclear power as a  way to bring down CO2 emissions - what do you think of this?

 No, the long-term legacy of toxic radioactive waste is too dangerous.


 ix.
 Asylum and immigration will be central issues in this election. What action on this issue would you like to see the  next government push
 through?

 Tackling Global Poverty instead of following George Bush.


 x.
 What question do you wish was on this list but doesn't appear?

 How do you personally limit your impact on the Earth?
