David Cameron has said he believes in the “freedom to hunt” and wants fox hunting legalised.
It is now very likely the Conservatives will hold a parliamentary vote on repealing the fox hunting ban brought in ten years ago.
Tamworth MP Christopher Pincher also supports the return of fox hunting.
Fox hunting involves setting a pack of dogs on a fox and then chasing it on horseback until it is surrounded and ripped apart. It is barbaric and cruel and rightly opposed by the majority of people in this country.
Please sign this petition to show the Prime Minister how out of touch support for this so-called sport is and show your support for maintaining the hunting ban.
Secure, affordable, decent homes. Not much to ask for really.
However, due to soaring private rents and social housing being sold off left, right and centre, for a lot of people, it’s just a dream.
The Green Party will tackle this crisis head on by abolishing the unfair bedroom tax, building more social rented homes and bring empty homes back into use to ensure everyone has access to an affordable place to live.
Three days ago, The Green Party launched its 2015 General Election ManifestoFor the Common Good which sets out ambitious plans for a fairer society and a safer planet.
At the launch event, Green Party leader Natalie Bennett said:
Our manifesto is an unashamedly bold plan to create a more equal, more democratic society while healing the planet from the effects of an unstable, unsustainable economy.
Also at the launch was Caroline Lucas (elected as as MP for Brighton Pavilion in 2010). Caroline added:
From ending the scandal of cold homes to investing in a public transport system that puts the public first, our plans will make a positive difference to people’s lives, create new jobs and help protect our environment.
Please take some time to read the manifesto and you will see The Green Party vision is significantly different to that of any other party. Fairness, healthy lives, safe planet!
The Green Party believes that the NHS should be publicly funded and provide free healthcare at the point of need. There should be no private interest in the NHS as healthcare is a public service and should not generate profit for anyone.
The Green Party would reverse all privatisation and repeal the Health and Social Care Act 2012. It would also make mental health a much higher priority than it is now, with funding to match this aim.
