I am standing as your Green MP candidate for Hornsey and Friern Barnet because I am passionate about democracy and giving voters the choice to vote for a greener environment and, most importantly, the existential climate crisis that we all face.

I want Hornsey, Friern Barnet and this country to have environmentally friendly, well-funded, locally controlled, public services and I will advocate nationally for policies that prioritise renewable energy and community involvement in green issues.

I have lived in the Borough of Barnet since 1968 and attended a school in Friern Barnet, so I know the area very well. As a British born European with Italian and French heritage I want us to rejoin the EU after the disaster of Brexit.

The EU has stronger environmental policies on clean waterways and air, on reduction in soil pollution and pesticides that kill our wildlife, especially invertebrates, all of which the UK government blatantly ignores.

We need to apply progressive taxes for the super rich and corporations as well as close tax loopholes. Fairer taxation will improve all aspects of society, including our crumbling infrastructures and would fund the Green energy revolution we all desperately need.

I am ready to serve and work for you as your Green Party MP, should you choose to elect me. I will advocate for renewable energy, equitable healthcare and fairer taxes.Together we can build a future that respects our planet and cares for all members of society.

Statements from five other candidates: Dawn Barnes – Liberal Democrats, Naz Panju – Conservatives, Dino Philippos – Workers Party, Helen Spiby-Vann – Christian People’s Alliance and Catherine West – Labour.

Barnet Post approached Reform UK candidate Navdeep Singh for a statement but we have not received one.

Note: Barnet Post approached all candidates for the borough’s seats and offered them the opportunity to make a 250-word statement. The purpose of these statements is to give voters the clearest possible understanding of the perspectives of people who are asking for their support. In doing this, we acknowledge that some views expressed my cause offence and distress and apologise if this is the case.
