The Green Party’s General Election candidate for Lichfield and Burntwood says she is “a credible alternative” for voters.

Andrea Muckley was speaking at a hustings event at Wade Street Church ahead of the poll on Thursday (12th December).

She said the Greens offered an option for voters outside of the main parties:

“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing again and again and expecting a different outcome.

“We are living in difficult, dangerous and divisive times.

“The Green Party offers a credible alternative.”

The candidate spoke of her role as a councillor in Cannock, suggesting she had seen first hand what happens when politicians follow the party line – and the need to break free from that.

She said:

“I’m in politics to speak up for people. I don’t care if I’m unpopular because of this – I’m a solicitor so I’m used to it.

“We need this approach in Parliament as we are stuck in the mud.

“What we need is a breath of fresh air and some new MPs to shake it up.

“And we need people who actually speak for us.”
