Green MEP speaks at Redhill event

Keith Taylor MEPThe Greens are very good at thinking globally and acting locally, MEP Keith Taylor told members of East Surrey Green Party at a fundraising dinner last night.

“Taking action at a local level and working hard for the community is a brilliant first step,” said Keith.

That’s why Jonathan (Essex), Sarah (Finch) and Bryn (Truscott) [current or former councillors] have done such a good job, and why we need to get Steve (McKenna, this year’s candidate for Redhill East) elected.”

Keith, a former long-serving Brighton & Hove councillor, gave an interesting insight into his work at the European Parliament, where his work includes a particular interest in air pollution, sustainable transport and tourism, pesticides and animal welfare.

In his South East England constituency, he supports residents on issues including planning and housing and campaigns on climate change.

“I’ve never worked as hard as I am now,” he said.

Keith said that on the issue of the EU referendum he supported the Green Party’s ‘stay in’ policy. In that sense the party shares the view of business and Tory leaders but for different reasons, he says.

“Cameron wants to get rid of the ‘Green crap’ and Osborne wants to stop directives that are there to make our common lives better. I want to create a sustainable Europe, based on equality, fairness and a vision of hope.”
