"I am standing in the Lewisham East by-election for the Green Party because I know Lewisham residents - they now want to see real change, and a stronger, healthier Lewisham. They are sick of party-political infighting and want to see the real problems they have being championed in Parliament. I am here to cut through the grand-standing and ideology and deliver for Lewisham. People in Lewisham want to see their lives improve."
