A Common Sense Green Policy
"To be clear, love for our ‘green and pleasant lands’ is an important part of what makes me a Conservative. Future generations have a right to enjoy our great British environment – it is their birth right and we must conserve it. Indeed, the United Kingdom has done more than almost any other country to mitigate its impact on the environment.
As a Conservative, I also believe in fair play. When our country accounts for less than 1% of global emissions, with countries such as China accounting for over 27%, why should we seek to decimate the living standards of hard-working people? I argue that we should not!
This is the approach of Mayor Khan and his disastrous U.L.E.Z. charge. It is estimated that over one million hard-working families and tradespeople in London are having £12.50 per day taken by Khan in this zealous cash grab. Yet, he knows from independent forecasts that the expansion to ‘Greater London’ will have a negligible impact on air quality. This is not a war on air pollution, but an ideological war launched on the least well off in ‘Greater London’. Quite simply it is wrong, and worse still it is cruel!
The Conservatives take a different approach. At Margaret Thatcher House in Romford, mayoral candidate Susan Hall A.M. committed to abolishing the U.L.E.Z. expansion on her first day in City Hall. His Majesty’s Government has moderated its green policy meaning that hard working Britons will not need to hastily buy expensive electric cars or heat pumps.
Labour’s top priority is extreme left-wing ideology. The Conservative Party has proved that its top priority is a brighter future for hard-working families. This is what Romford needs, and this is what I will continue to fight for locally and nationally!"
