Isle of Wight: Vix Lowthion
Vix Lowthion is again standing in the Isle of Wight, where in 2015 she achieved 9,404 votes (13.4%), coming third in a six-way contest. The Green vote was ten times bigger than in 2010.
Vix, a teacher of Geology and History, is also the Party’s national spokesperson on education. She successfully called for OFSTED chair David Hoare to resign after he described the Isle of Wight as a “ghetto”.
She says: “The Isle of Wight could show the world how green tourism, energy technologies and good local food can provide jobs and a better quality of life. There is also much work to be done to tackle poverty, wider opportunities and employment for all Islanders.”
