Green Party chooses Richmond candidate

Green candidate John Yorke,

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.”
