For the first time in two decades the Green Party will stand in local elections in Aylesbury Vale protesting at plans to build High Speed 2. Aylesbury Vale Green Party chairman David Lyons told the Bucks Herald: “We last stood a long time ago and things have changed."
This is the time we need to get active. We want to put an alternative option to voters. People cynically say you’ve never been elected here before but voters have never had the option but to vote for the grey policies of mainstream parties. We are about social justice and providing for people and their futures in a world that people can live in.
If we get to oblivion then if people had the chance (to vote) at least we can say on their heads shall be it.”
