I’ve been a member of the Green Party since 2008 and am originally from Manchester moving to Brinnington in 2016. I joined the party as it was the only main party that believed in social justice and looking after everyone.
What is being done to the NHS is particularly important to me as I have suffered from bouts of serious ill health in the past and have witnessed the tremendous work of the NHS staff at close quarters. We as a country must not allow a private health system to be established as it will mean the suffering of millions.
I was a candidate in Manchester local elections for several years until my move to Brinnington and I’ve noticed the other parties take votes and seats for granted whereas we in the Green Party believe that people in their local area where possible should have the power to make that decision.
