I’m voting Green. It would be foolish not to. Without The Greens, there will be no change.
Labour alone cannot carry the mantle that has to be borne for all our sakes. Labour/Green is the way forward and is being offered to us right now. Lifting that pairing up and over the line is the gift we can give, the action we can take, the choice we can make, here and now, for everyone, no matter what their political persuasion.
In my corner of the world, I’m voting for the Labour candidate, Liz Craig; she’s exactly the person needed here in the South; warm, generous and intelligent and I sincerely hope she wins the seat over National’s Sarah Dowie.
My Party vote will go to The Greens, because I believe the new Government would be lacking, would be less than it could be, would be without real substance, without The Greens. It’s a simple equation; Labour plus The Greens equals real progress, real change, real hope.
I have a plea, and I almost never plead: if you are weighing up whether or not a vote for The Greens is a wise vote, do as I will do and give your Party vote to The Green Party.
