Vicki Elcoate commented on Safe Climate 2017-05-15 17:54:24 +0100The Green party’s General Election policies are summarised here: https://www.greenparty.org.uk/election-priorities.html
We’re the only political party which puts the environment at the centre of its policies. This is the overall message – you should be able to find more detail on the Green Party main website:
“It’s not fun and it’s not pretty but it’s a must: we must liberate ourselves from the threat of climate change. Without doing so our future will never be as bright or as hopeful as we want it to be. By investing in renewables and phasing out coal, oil and gas plants we will create clean air, rivers, parks, and gardens, we will limit the danger of flooding and prevent fracking companies from drilling into our countryside. We have so much to gain as a nation from making choices today that might seem new and uncertain but in the long-run will bring us that stability and certainty we all want”.
Keith Taylor, Green MEP for the South East, has been visiting oil drilling sites in Surrey and Sussex to offer his support to local campaigners fighting against unconventional oil extraction.Read more

Vicki Elcoate signed Plane misery 2015-08-17 09:17:09 +0100This would be a quiet country lane in lovely countryside between Charlwood and Ifield if it wasn’t under the Gatwick flight path. If the airport sizes increases it would be even noisier and more intrusive.
Please support our No New Runways campaign. Take a photo of yourself with our no new runways sign in a location special to you, which is being blighted by aviation. This might be down to noisy flight paths, early or late plane movements, poor air quality, local road congested with airport traffic, special buildings, countryside or wildlife threatened by airport expansion. Do write a message on the paper plane wings, or the name of the airport causing you concern.
Quality: phone or ipad quality is fine, but please take your photo in a square format. Please record the location or postcode where you took your photo.
Then please upload your image here. Add your name and location or postcode below (this is important so we can produce the map). We will then produce a map of all the locations across the South East, London and further afield where aircraft and airport expansion blight our lives. This will then be published at our event in London on September 12 as our Map of Plane Misery.
Please ask your friends and other campaigners to do the same.7 photographsAdd photograph

By putting a price tag on education, running schools as businesses and creating exam factories we are wasting children's potential and stifling creativity. Student debt is due to reach £100 bn in 2018.
The Greens will:
- scrap university tuition fees
- promote a comprehensive system of local schools, offering mixed ability teaching staffed by qualified teachers
- bring Academies and Free Schools into the local authority system
We want a quality education system for our young people and no tuition fees.
