You may remember Bright Green reporting rumours last week that the Green Party’s fully-costed manifesto was rumoured to be launching this Tuesday…

Well, we’ve just seen this (it went out this morning to the press) to confirm it’s true. Get ready – the campaign has well and truly begun.

The Green Party’s 2015 General Election manifesto launch will take place in London on Tuesday, 14th April.

For the Common Good’, the Greens’ manifesto, will be unveiled by Natalie Bennett, Leader of the Green Party of England and Wales, and Caroline Lucas, who was elected as MP for Brighton Pavilion in 2010.

The manifesto will spell out how the Green Party plans to end austerity and restore the public sector, creating over one million good jobs that pay at least a Living Wage. Greens oppose the creeping privatisation of the NHS and will invest in a public programme of renewable generation.

The Green Party is polling at record levels ahead of a General Election. Membership of the Green Party of England and Wales sky-rocketed by 123% in 2014 and continues to surge in 2015. The current number of members of the Green Party of England and Wales stands at almost 60,000, making the Green Party the third biggest party in England and Wales.

The Green Party is standing candidates in over 90% of seats, meaning more people will be able to vote Green than ever before.

The launch will take place at the Arcola Theatre in Dalston, east London.
