GREEN LEADERSHIP CANDIDATE LUCAS SETS OUT HER EURO ELECTION GOALS - INCL. VICTORY IN EASTERN REGION!

Here is the latest statement from Caroline Lucas - these are starting to add up to a kind of 'manifesto' for her leadership bid, which is in itself I think quite an exciting development.
Naturally, this one is likely to be particularly exciting to readers of this blog: it singles out Eastern Region, as one of the two new 'national target Regions' for the Green Party, as a place where we need to break through next June, and should do so. Amen to that!

Caroline Lucas, standing to be Green Party Leader, today said that the European Elections next year will be a vital opportunity to take the Green message to new people, and to return a record number of MEPs.

"Greens this year need to show that we are a rising political force, that cannot be ignored.

 "Whether we're talking about employment rights, animal rights or renewable energy, Greens in the EU are already making a difference.

"But in politics, the proof people listen to is the number of votes we get, and how many Green MEPs are elected.

"It will be a tough election for us, because higher thresholds will mean we need more votes to return each MEP.

"So we need the strongest performance we can deliver, both to return our two sitting MEPs, and to gain new ones, in the North West and East England.

"All the time and energy put in by activists and members are absolutely worth the gains we can make.

"I give my heartfelt thanks to everyone in the party who is already working incredibly hard to make this happen, and urge everyone to focus on the task ahead and redouble their efforts.

"By getting more Greens elected to Europe, we will be helping defend social and environmental rights, and to create a more transparent and accountable EU: something other parties consistently fail to do.

"In my experience, I can tell you that every Green MEP is worth ten from the other parties. So let's make it happen!"
