From Green Party News 6 March 2015
The Green Party has welcomed the broadcasters’ restatement of their plans for the Leaders’ Debates.
Natalie Bennett, Leader of the Green Party of England and Wales, looks forward to taking part in the Debates, which have the potential to fundamentally reshape British politics during the official election campaign and beyond.
Speaking from the Green Party’s Spring Conference, the party’s largest ever conference, Bennett said:
“The broadcasters have rightly recognised that we are now in an age of multi-party politics and that the future of British politics does not need to look like the politics of the past. These multi-party debates serve the interests of both the electorate and British democracy.
“The Prime Minister may not want to recognise that the political landscape is fracturing but the writing is on the wall – more and more people are disaffected by business-as-usual Westminster politics and are looking for real change.
“I am very much looking forward to sharing Green Party policies that can bring real change to Britain – from bringing the railways back into public hands to a £10 minimum wage by 2020 to zero university tuition fees – with a wide audience in the debates. Our membership and polling surge demonstrates that when people hear about Green Party values and policies many embrace them.”
