At the St Pancras parish church Holborn and St Pancras hustings on Wednesday night, leafletters from The People’s Charter were out in force.
Arriving early, I had time to read their leaflet, and was pleased to see that the charter’s stance on a fair economy, a fairer Britain, decent homes, returning public services to public ownership (e.g. the railways), on equality and gender justice, and more, are all entirely in line with Green Party policy.
I was pleased to be able to say that in my introductory remarks.
And looking around later, I found that it was “launched back in March as an appeal that could unite all those looking for an alternative to New Labour policies”.
I’ve now signed the charter, and I’d urge you to do so too.
I couldn’t find out anywhere how many signatures the charter has now, but certainly it must be plenty.
It’s a reminder how closely aligned Green Party policies are with what many people want in public policy – as supported by the Vote for Policies website, where with a “blind tasting” test, Green Party policies are winning the popular vote with (as I write now) about 28% of the more than 125,000 people who have completed the survey.
