WHY VOTE GREEN ON Thursday MAY 3?
THE PROBLEM: The other political parties - the Grey Parties - have run Bristol for decades. Result: Bristol is among the six worst cities for Education, Congestion costs £350m a year, Public transport is atrocious... Little of whatís good in Bristol (and thereís plenty) is thanks to the Council. They seem to let the South West Regional Development Authority make the major decisions - 100,000 new homes in the countryside south of Bristol, straining resources and adding to traffic through our Ward. Building a 10,000 seat Arena where congestion is already intolerable. Pollution, litter, commuter parking, cars speeding through our streets, inadequate response to the growing awareness that we need to tackle climate change.
THE SOLUTION: Instead of the Grey Partiesí short-term approach, the Green Partyís vision reaches into the future - saving the environment for the benefit of our children and grand-children. The Green Party also has policies covering all aspects of public life - social services, education, food, culture, industry and jobs. See our website (www.greenparty.org.uk) for our policies, from Agriculture to Workers' Rights, including Health, Peace and Pensions.
In short: Enhancing Quality of Life, now and always!
GREEN PARTY: Southville elected Bristol City Council's first Green Party Councillor last year. This year it's our turn. Windmill Hill Ward can show its disapproval of the Grey Parties, and demand a better future.
Even when Green candidates donít win, Green votes bring home to other, complacent politicians the fact that voters really care about environmental, Quality of Life, and social justice issues. A few Green Councillors would shake up the ineffectual Labour, Lib-Dem and Tory Councillors.
Our vision, our time-frame, the basis of our philosophy, are all radically different from those of the Grey Parties.
