Gloucester Greens voters gave us a third place in the Euro elections with over 19% of the vote, above both the Labour and Conservative parties. Molly Scott Cato, our Green MEP, was re-elected with over 18% of the South West vote, up from 11% in the last elections. Green votes increased across Gloucestershire, the South-West and the rest of the UK, most notably in Brighton and Bristol, where Greens came first overall with a spectacular 35% of the vote. Success in the UK was mirrored by a massive surge in Green votes across the whole of Europe.

It's 100 years since (some) women won the vote, but most of us still don't have a vote that matters. On Tuesday MPs, MEPs, Peers and public figures are joining hundreds of us in a 24 hour fast to demand Proportional Representation.

Greens elected to Gloucestershire County Council will defend communities, protect public services and cherish the countryside, towns and villages of the county. We will invest in clean energy and a low carbon economy, promote local food production and end secrecy around multi-million-pound contracts.

Health Chiefs say one of the biggest problem the NHS faces is blocked beds and inappropriate admissions due to poor social care which has been severely cut. We are asking National and Local Government to ACT NOW and reallocate the £5 Billion to support home help and social care in Gloucestershire. This will mean that more people can live in their own homes, with the help they need and the NHS will be able to free up beds in our overcrowded hospitals.

As usual, instead of those with extreme wealth being required to pay back some of the hundreds of billions they cost this country, the poor and the relatively poor are going to pay. Families in rented accommodation, not in paid work, could lose around a third of their income left, after paying housing costs and utility bills, down from an already low £300 per week to around £200 for a family with 3 children.The savings to the government exchequer are paltry but the effect on these families will be devastating.
