The area around Shooters Hill parade of shops is neglected and underinvested
The area behind is unpaved and attracts antisocial behaviour. Fly-tipped rubbish builds up continually.
On the street side the paving is in a terrible state and dangerous to pedestrians. The council has completely neglected the area for decades.
Kidbrooke deserves better!

The coronavirus lockdown is worsening an economic crisis that was already happening. And the economic consequences of lockdown are not being felt evenly by all. Anyone working on a zero hour contract has found out how brutally insecure zero hour contracts are. Anyone getting minimum wage is now at risk of being furloughed on 80% of minimum wage. Many across Greenwich and Bexley are struggling to make ends meet. The unemployment rate has jumped rapidly. Bustling high streets across our […]

Context leading up to the Carbon Neutral Plan In November 2018, Bristol Council passed a motion raised by Carla Denyer of the Green Party to declare a climate emergency.

Pictured: Victoria Rance with Green Party co-leader Siân Berry This is such a pivotal moment in politics. Ten years ago while other parties were bailing out the banks, we were building a bridge to the future. As the whole financial system collapsed, the Green Party’s very own Caroline Lucas was one of a small group of people who wrote a road map into something so much better. A Green New Deal. We had a chance then to make a radical […]
I am so proud of the Green Party manifesto which deals with the climate emergency we face head on. It is the most ambitious Green New Deal anywhere in the world. […]
Hustings speech made at St. Mary’s Community Centre, Eltham on 26th November 2019 Firstly let me thank the Keep Our NHS Public group for inviting me to speak at the hustings. It is my pleasure to be able to talk for a few minutes specifically about the NHS. The government as a whole raises and spends £800bn per year, that’s everything you can think of from pensions to defence to roads to hospitals to schools to housing to energy subsidies. […]
