3 May 2017


Helen GeakeWoolpit-based TV archaeologist Helen Geake will again contest Bury St Edmunds constituency, aiming to build further on her 2015 result when she doubled the Party’s previous share of the vote. Helen said :

“We know the Conservatives want the election to be all about Brexit but the bread and butter issues must be brought to the fore. Housing development must be in the right places and of the highest sustainability construction, and with the right infrastructure".

“I will be challenging Jo Churchill on her record and that of the Government she supports, noting for example the years of stalling regarding poor air quality, now estimated to cost 40,000 lives a year in the UK and immeasurable ill-health across the population.”


Regan SCottFor the Central Suffolk and North Ipswich constituency the Green Party candidate will be Regan Scott from Great Bealings, a retired journalist and economist. He will be emphasising the Green Party commitment to renewable energy and a carbon-free future, while opposing any further development of nuclear power. Regan said :

“In 2015 25% of our electricity was generated by renewables such as wind, solar and biomass and this figure continues to increase. The Green Party wants more help for this industry rather than nuclear power being subsidising."


Helen Geake, together with Green Party Councillor Mark Ereira, has explored the possibility of greater collaboration with the Liberal Democrat and Labour parties locally, so far without any encouraging response. Green Party Co-leader Caroline Lucas is working with MPs of other parties trying to form a Progressive Alliance in pursuit of electoral reform and against austerity.
