'Vote For The Real Thing And Vote Green' Urges MEP

Ahead of the local elections this Thursday (May 4th 2006) London's Green MEP, Jean Lambert, has spoken of the positive changes Green Councillors have made to the Capital and warned that if Londoners want to protect their future they must vote for the real thing and vote Green!

Jean, who has been a Member of the European Parliament for the Green Party since 1999 wished the 1294 Green candidates standing for seats around the UK good luck for Thursday and commented; "The Green Party is making a real difference to a healthy local environment and decent local services by giving local communities a strong voice.

"Other Parties are all competing for the green ticket but we urge people to vote for the real thing and vote Green. Never mind any of this 'vote blue - go green' business, if people want to make a real difference they would be crazy to do anything but vote Green.

"When I was re-elected two years ago the British public cast over one million Green votes - a clear indication that there is serious concern for our future. People like what they have seen from elected Green's all over the country and want more to make the real difference that matters."

Jean Lambert MEP will be in London and available for comments or interviews throughout the day and evening on May 4th.
