100 days to go til European Election day!
>> Today, as the country wakes up to yet more weather chaos, the realisation is dawning in more and more minds that - as the Met Office itself has finally said - climate chaos is coming home to roost in this country. It's tragic; it's terrible; it's a terrifying portent. This is a time for steady forward-looking leadership and long-termism, based on a sound understanding of the natural and human processes at work here. At last, the climate-denial of the Tory Right and of UKIP is being shown up for the profoundly dangerous nonsense that it is, and people are starting to realise that it is surely time to turn to the one Party that has been correct on this vital issue all along... (Just yesterday, a Guardian poll showed us moving up to 7%, just 2% behind the Tories' Coalition Government partners, the LibDems!)
>> Today, it's 100 days to go until 'E-Day', European Election Day, May 22.
>> Today, I'm happy to be able to announce that, to mark this moment, Natalie Bennett is visiting our Region: she'll be speaking in Cambridge later, and appearing live on Radio Cambridgeshire.
>> Today, as this landmark concentrates all our minds, our regional Fundraising Director Paul Jeater has launched a new pledge: http://www.pledgebank.com/GreenstoWin2014. With 100 days to go til Election Day, Paul is seeking 100 people to pledge just £20 each... We are thus aiming to raise £2000 (in fact, I'm gonna throw in an extra £14, so that it adds up to 2014 :-). So, please sign (and share) this pledge. Thanks!: http://www.pledgebank.com/GreenstoWin2014
>> Today, we in the Greens have our sight (and our sites) set on winning in 2014, on finally breaking through and taking that Parliamentary seat here in the East, that eluded us by just 1% five years ago. Surely, for the future, this is our time. It starts today!
>> Please forward/share - and act on - this message, today! Thank you...<<
Dr. Rupert Read, lead Green Party MEP candidate in the East of England in the European elections.
