VOTE AGAINST THE CUTS – PUNISH LOCAL CONDEMS
As you may know, the Rugby Against The Cuts campaign wrote to all the local political parties and candidates in Rugby and to their shame (especially Labour’s) they refused to sign their pledge opposing the cuts - unlike we are proud to say, all the Rugby Green Party candidates.
Rugby Greens believes the ordinary people are being asked to bail out the bankers and their gambling debts and the very wealthy in our society are getting away with out paying their due – We demand the following:
Tackle the £120bn of tax evasion every year, Tax the Bankers bonuses, Scrap the money pit that is PFI and end the £100m a year of ‘charity status’ in tax relief to elitist Public Schools like Rugby School. Why should we be expected to pick up the tab instead of the very wealthy?
ALL OUR CANDIDATES HAVE THEREFORE BEEN ENDORSED BY THE RUGBY AGAINST THE CUTS CAMPAIGN AS THE ONLY ‘ANTI CUTS CANDIDATES’ IN THE SEATS WE ARE CONTESTING!
SUSTAINABLE- GREEN – EFFICIENT - RUGBY
Green Councillors in Rugby would also put on the agenda, clear sound ideas and action to generate and save £millions for local people and the Borough Council by using local companies to purchase items (Sustainable Rugby), energy production (Green Rugby) and promoting insulation in many homes in Rugby by demanding the Utility companies cough up (Efficient Rugby).
SACK HUMPHRIES AND THE TORIES!
Their is much good about our town – but the council under the leadership of the unelected Tory Chief Executive/Mayor Councillor Craig Humphries leadership is holding our town back - Pawn brokers, cash a cheque and charity shops is not the way to build our town. Keeping Youth Clubs in Rugby is much more important than giving the likes of Craig Humphries a job.
LIB DEMS IN TERMINAL DECLINE?
The announcement of candidates shows a further decline of the Liberal Democrats who are clearly failing to find local people willing to stand for them – we believe they have sold out their principles to get into Government and are doing severe harm to people in Rugby.
GREENS FIGHTING NINE SEATS
Rugby Green Party will be contesting the following 9 wards;
Admirals: Steve Laffy
Benn: Paul Sandison
Brownsover North: Pater Reynolds
Earl Craven: Ellie Roderick
Newbold: Lorna Dunleavy
New Bilton: Roy Sandison
Overslade: Laurence Goodchild
Paddox: Phil Godden
Ryton on Dunsmore: Sarah Bennett
· Benn Ward (No Lib Dem where they finished second last time) – ahead of a respectable Green Party vote – Paul Sandison is again standing for the Green Party.
· Earl Craven (Wolson & Binley Woods) where they Lib Dems failed again to find a candidate – where the Green Party achieved a very respectable vote last time – Ellie Roderick is again standing for the Green Party.
· Newbold on Avon – The Lib Dems have failed again to find a candidate – Lorna Dunleavy is standing for the Green Party and has achieved excellent results in the past.
· Ryton on Dunsmore – Where the Lib Dems and also Labour have failed to find a candidate . So we see a Tory vs Green Party head to head fight – with Sarah Bennett standing for the Greens.
In the past 1 in 10 (Over 4000) Rugby people have voted Green and we expect that level of support to increase across the town. We also have an aim to replace the discredited Liberal Democrats as the third party in the UK and Rugby in future
RUGBY DESERVES BETTER!
