Better Transport

Are you happy with a privatised public transport system? We’re not.

This is what we’ll do about it:

  • return the railways to public ownership
  • reduce rail fares immediately by 10%
  • promote cycling and walking for health and environmental benefits.

Free Education

What price a decent education?

Academies and Free Schools run as businesses, sky high university tuition fees. This is not what a world class education system is built upon.

The Green Party will:

  • bring an end to tuition fees
  • bring Academies and Free Schools back under local authority control
  • promote a fully comprehensive system.

Green Party Manifesto 2015

Three days ago, The Green Party launched its 2015 General Election Manifesto For 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!

To help you through the details, the manifesto is available in multiple formats including braille, easy read, audio and British Sign Language. Now what could be fairer than that?
