A lot of people are unhappy with the major political parties. Many will choose to use their vote in the European elections as a protest. The Government is dishonest and sleazy with many Labour politicians looking after themselves first. It does not represent working people anymore. The Conservatives are remembered as the party of Thatcher. She divided the country and destroyed jobs and industry. There is a positive, radical and progressive alternative to the major parties. The Green Party offers real solutions to issues like jobs, housing, poverty, education and climate change. It is the only party with a serious commitment to public services, civil liberties and making society fairer. The Green Party is for people and communities taking control of their lives to find the right answers to their problems. Everyone should have basic human rights. An important part of this is the prevention of discrimination based on race, gender, disability, sexual orientation, age, religion or social origin. The Green Party, unlike some other smaller political parties, does not believe that immigration and non white people living in Britain are to blame for all the problems in this country. Any party which claims this is un-British as they go against our traditions of tolerance, justice, democracy and fairness: the very values we defended in the war against Nazism in Germany and fascism in Italy. In fact, Green policies will help to reduce the insecurities on which less reasonable parties depend.
