THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY - IT IS NOT A CAMPAIGN
The Wandsworth Green Party is not
officially running a campaign in this very important Queenstown by
election. I have been selected to stand as the 'paper' candidate in
this by election for the Wandsworth Green Party.
I have decided to stand as a paper candidate in the Queenstown by
I have also decided on principle not to develop any campaign or
become involved in any way in the current political situation.
There are far too many issues and problems affecting the people in
the Queenstown community and far too many potential changes to take
into account for either me or the Wandsworth Green Party to be able
to develop any sort of potential campaign within the limited time
frame of this by election.
I feel very strongly that mainstream politics has become far too
much about money, about power and about status. It is no longer
about people, about the quality of their lives, their hopes, their
fears, their concerns or their needs.
I am standing not out of any personal desire to become a Wandsworth
councillor, but to serve both my party and the community of people
in which I live. I am a resident of the Savona Estate in Battersea.
I have nothing to offer but honesty and the truth. I am not an
experienced councillor. I am a relatively new member of the
Wandsworth Green Party. I need time to get to know the residents of
this community, to understand the complex issues and potential
changes facing the Queenstown communtiy, and to get to know the
Wandsworth Green Party and Green Party as a whole. Both are
necessary for me to be able to provide any sort of effective
representation at local government level for the community.
I am only interested in serving the needs of the Queenstown
community, my party the Green Party, and finding effective solutions
to the many issues experienced by Queenstown residents. I'm not
interesting in finger pointing, fighting political parties or in
Therefore the contents of this website relate specifically to my
personal views as a Queenstown resident and should not be
interpreted in any way as any sort of campaign, either by myself or
the Wandsworth Green Party. Nor should it be interpreted as any sort
of official position or policy by either the Wandsworth Green Party
or Green Party as a whole.
I am standing for Green Party members and supporters and also for
those in the Queenstown community who want real political change and
effective local government representation. I am standing to provide
a clear message of hope to people, and because I care about the
people of my community, I care about their hopes and fears, about
their issues and problems, about the quality of their lives in this
community. I'm only interested in working towards solutions which
develop a better, stronger, more integrated community.
I hope this makes things clear.
Polling date is Thursday 10th November 2016 - 7am to 10pm.
