VOTE GREEN FOR A MILLION JOBS

On the day that a ComRes voter-intention poll puts the Green Party on 15% (1) - ahead of the LibDems for the first time since 1989 - Green Party leader Caroline Lucas made a final appeal to the public to make tomorrow's vote more than a protest vote.

Dr Lucas, who was first elected to the European Parliament in 1999, said:

"A Green vote is much more than a protest against the big three. Let's remember they've been discredited not just by the expenses scandal but by their lack of commitment to putting social and environmental justice at top of political agenda."

"It isn't just about where the protest vote goes, it's what it achieves when it gets there. Britain has had Green MEPs for a decade now, so you know we've always stood up for public services, for protecting people's rights and for making the EU more democratic, more transparent and more accountable to the voters."

"You know if you elect more Green MEPs they will fight for all those things, and also for the economic policies that could create a million green jobs in the UK, to help tackle the recession and the climate crisis."


Note:

1. This ComRes poll was commissioned by the Green Party. It put the Greens just behind UKIP (17%) and just ahead of the LibDems (14%) for Thursday's Euro-election.

Yesterday's ComRes poll commissioned by the Independent put the Greens on 8% for a general election - the highest such poll ever, and just ahead of UKIP (7%).
