Green Party Policies

In the election manifesto, the Green Party sets out policies to build a sustainable society: one based on the principles of social, economic and environmental justice. Unashamedly, Greens place people and the planet's resources at the heart of our policies. The Westminster parties have created a system where a better quality of life for some comes at the expense of a widening gap between rich and poor, where public services are eroded and politicians bury their heads in the sand, ignoring the future of our environment.

Our vision for Britain is realistic, honest and compassionate: it's about putting trust back into politics and giving our children the best future we can.

We'll deliver real improvements to our health, education, transport and energy services by halting their sell-off through public-private 'partnerships' - privatisation by another name - and investing resources where they're needed most.

We will put peace and security at the heart of our foreign policy by building a fairer world and tackling the root causes of terrorism, war and asylum - not by launching draconian attacks on our civil liberties and human rights.

And we will introduce energy, construction and transport policies that will dramatically reduce the greenhouse gas emissions fuelling the runaway climate change which represents the greatest threat to life as we know it.

In short, the Greens promise a political programme for at least the next hundred years, not just the next hundred days. Green MPs will bring a strong Green voice to Westminster, changing the nature of politics for the better, for ever.
