Moving onwards & upwards together

Ashley Gunstock speaking at the Leadership Hustings
I would like to take the opportunity to thank all those people who helped, supported and voted for me during the recent Green Party Leadership election – which I am very proud to have contested – and also congratulate Caroline Lucas & Adrian Ramsay on becoming The Green Party's first Leader & Deputy.

The Green Party has evolved through many upheavals and we should now look upon the recent, fundamental changes as a challenge for us all to meet and do our best to embrace.

Now that The Party has a Leadership team I wish it - and all Party officers - success in developing a strategy that will work for the good of The Party and take it forward and, as a Green Party member, I will do my best to make that happen.

However if, given a good chance, the strategy does not work positively for The Party don't count me out of standing at another leadership election. I may well be back..."

Yours sincerely

Ashley Gunstock
Waltham Forest & Redbridge Green Party
General Election Candidate for Leyton & Wanstead


  1. Well Ashley you spoke well at conference but I think inviting Hitler around for tea with Mahatma Gandhi may have disorientated some people!

    See you soon!

  2. They may well have been even more "disorientated" if Ashley had a surname like Goldberg, Goldstein, Levi or Cohen!
