The Filton and Bradley Stoke Green Party has announced the selection of Dr Diana Warner as the Green Party candidate for the Filton and Bradley Stoke (FABS) parliamentary seat in the 2015 general election.
Dr Warner lives in Filton and has two adult children. A staunch supporter of the NHS and motivated by improving the health of all, Dr Warner chose a career path as a general practitioner, amassing 25 years of local practice experience. She is currently working in a maternity cover role with the Stoke Gifford & Conygre Medical Centre.
Speaking after her selection, Dr Warner said:
“I have decided to stand as MP because I see increasing hardship among all the people I serve. This is due to huge financial inequality, as today the very rich get richer. Those with middle incomes are facing reduction in their wealth and increased working hours and insecurity. Poorer people are having to manage biting austerity. The Green Party is determined to change this. If money is shared more equally we can all benefit from modern technology and innovation and we can all make the choices that will help us to live well.”
“Here in Filton and Bradley Stoke we are in an excellent position to go forward into the twenty-first century. With Airbus, Rolls-Royce and other industry on our doorstep, we are at a centre of cutting edge technology. We need to use technology for real benefit for us and for our environment.”
“The Green Party has coherent and comprehensive strategies which will increase security and wellbeing, improve transport and environment, provide opportunities and vision from infants to retirees. It is a fully democratic party funded by membership and individual donations. This ensures that all our policies are developed by the majority, not by the corporate minority.”
