Co-leader of the Green Party, Jonathan Bartley, was in Worcester on Friday 7th April to launch the party's national council election campaign.
Jonathan Bartley with Greens in Worcester
"I'm absolutely thrilled to be here, we've got a record number of candidates at these local elections and it's crucial that we fight for the kind of country we want at a local level - the fight starts here.
"Since 2010 we've seen the longest period of under-investment in the NHS since the Second World War as a percentage of GDP, we've had 30 or 40 per cent of local government funding cuts on top of that, and we wonder why we've got social care problems.
"Wherever they are elected, Green councillors make a meaningful difference in their communities, improving people’s lives in all sorts of ways."
