My passion is for the environment and protecting this planet for future generations. If elected to parliament I pledge to continue with this and push as hard as possible to not only lead us towards zero carbon, but to improve the environment as a whole.
This truly is the climate election. We need to act now to secure a future for our children.
As the Brexit sideshow continues, overshadowing the real policies we need to get in place such as protecting our NHS, returning it to the world leading service it should be, and ensuring it remains free at the point of use.
Reversing austerity cuts which have done nothing except increase poverty and reliance on food banks, of which there were 57 in 2010 and today 424. With studies showing one in 50 households used a food bank in 2018-2019, we need to protect society’s most vulnerable. Also, tackling the housing crisis which has seen homelessness and rough sleeping increase year on year since the start of this decade.
We need to have a final say on Brexit, a people’s vote with three options: leave the EU with no deal, leave with the negotiated deal, or remain in the EU. The political landscape has changed so much, we need to know what the country wants now, and look to mend the divisions created within our society.
Finally, why am I the right person for this job? I’m standing for election because we need change, politics is broken, and we need fresh representation, people who represent all of us.
I’m a projects manager, I work in construction; I’m not a politician. I’m here because I believe we can do things better. We can work for the common good, create change, and make a fair society for all.
We've arranged delivery of a Freepost leaflet (pictured, right) by Royal Mail to every household in Christchurch constituency.
Chris and Green Party volunteers have delivered door-to-door thousands of copies of a second locally produced leaflet(printed on uncoated 100% recycled paper with eco inks).
Chris has spoken at two hustings events at Twynham School - a public event organised by Christchurch churches, and a separate event by and for Twynham sixth-formers. We've published videos and transcripts of Chris's contributions to the public event on our website... and there were positive reviews of Chris too!
There's a second Facebook video ad coming imminently, featuring Chris's hustings answers on education where he argued that "schools should not be exam factories" but should focus on producing rounded individuals.
