Glos candidatesThis film covers some of Molly Scott Cato’s introduction to the six parliamentary candidates in Gloucestershire.

Some forty people arrived at Quedgeley Community Centre on Saturday morning to celebrate the launch of the Green Party’s six parliamentary candidates, standing in all constituencies across Gloucestershire.

Green County Cllr Sarah Lunnon welcomed Molly Scott Cato, Green MEP for the SW and Gibraltar, who gave the keynote speech. Speaking about the widespread disillusionment with politics, she told the audience that there isn’t a problem with democracy, but a problem with our current batch of politicians. There is no difference between the main Westminster parties, and UKIP is not offering genuine change. It is the Green MP, Caroline Lucas, who is doing something different and effective in Parliament, and the country needs more politicians of her ilk. The decision to exclude the Green Party from TV Leaders’ debates is because our policies are different and we don’t fit into the Right-Left spectrum. But this week, it’s Greens’ exclusion that has become the story, petitions are showing people reacting against this, and our work on the streets means people are starting to see the Green Party has genuine alternative policies to offer.
