The Green Party has chosen John Yorke as its candidate for the Richmond constituency.
John and his wife Fiona have lived in the constituency since 1998.
John said: “There’s one big issue in this election – the climate emergency. We are motivated by three thoughts.
“First is the scale of the problem, and the worst-case scenario, which we must do everything we can to avoid.
“Second, we know that it is possible to move to a zero-carbon economy. We have the renewable-energy technology – all we need is the political will to invest in it.
“Third, we know that struggles to do the right things continue and always succeed in the end.”
