Julia Brown, Green Party for Hull East

10 May 2017

Julia Brown, an RE teacher, has been selected to contest Kingston upon Hull East constituency in the upcoming General Election in 2017.

Following her selection, she said,

“The Green Party has grown rapidly in the past 3 years and reflects a changing mood in the UK. In step with the people, we believe that profit has no place in our NHS, we should renationalise our railways, and we must achieve our own energy security through renewables."

“As the Green MP for Hull East I would also vote for a second referendum on the EU. A hard Brexit could be disastrous for import businesses even if a weaker pound is better for exports.”

“I strongly believe that the Greens provide the only real alternative to politics-as-usual. 

“To elect a Green MP for the city would be the greatest signal to the rest of the UK and beyond that this is our statement: we believe in sustainability, in social equality, in investing for the future and in working for the Common Good.”
