Challengers' Debate: Bennett Closing Speech

16 April 2015


We don't have to take any more of this.

The Tories' heavy austerity has cut deeply into the lives of those who can least afford it.

Labour isn't challenging austerity, just offering a slightly lighter version of the same failed recipe.

What does that leave?

The Lib Dems? Many people voted Lib Dem in 2010 to keep the Tories out. They won't be doing that again.

Tactical voting has given us the kind of politics that we have now.

Instead, I urge you to vote for what you believe in, for our future and future generations to come.

If you agreed with me tonight vote Green, don't listen to the people who'll tell you that you have to settle for a pale imitation.

If you want real change, you have to vote for it.

It's time to vote for hope.

It is time to be bold.

Vote Green.
