Brexit, of any type, is not in Britain’s interest. Alex was a passionate Remain campaigner. The majority of voters in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, and Oxfordshire and Surrey, East and West Sussex voted Remain. Across the South East, more than 48% of people did the same. Alex is fighting to ensure the voices of the 48% aren't sidelined while the voices of the 100% have the final say on any Brexit deal.
Alex sits on the Intergroup for Animal Welfare. Greens have consistently and unwaveringly defended animals - compassion for animals is in the Party's DNA. Alex is also a passionate vegan.
As a member of the European Parliament's Environment and Public Health Committee, Alex is passionately committed to protecting people and planet from the worst effects of climate change and environmental degradation and upholding their rights to a healthy life.
From a second chamber overstuffed with unelected peers and religious leaders to the royal prerogative, via a grossly unrepresentative electoral system that routinely silences the voice of the majority of Britons, democracy is broken. Alex campaigns to give life to real and representative democracy in Britain.
Like all Greens, Alex is also a staunch defender of the fundamental rights of people across the world. Alex is committed to standing up for youth justice and also sits on the Women and Gender Equality Committee.
Alex's work is largely focussed around pushing through a Green New Deal. We want to kick-start the economy in two ways: by ending austerity via a commitment to the biggest investment we have ever seen in renewable energies and energy efficiency measures, and tackling the climate crisis head-on.
The two are intertwined; you can’t commit to creating more jobs that will directly contribute towards tackling the climate crisis without also making a positive impact on the environment.
