(Statement given to New Milton Advertiser and Lymington Times June 6th 2024)

I’m Dr Anna Collar, an archaeology lecturer and mum-of-three.  I believe the time has come for ordinary people to step up and make ourselves heard.

My children are young, as are the students I teach.  I’m worried about the world they’re inheriting—the realities of climate change, the rising cost-of-living, the divisive media culture that pits us against each other.

I’ve never felt more distanced from the politicians supposedly running our country.  It’s time for credible people to step up and take the power back. It’s time for real change, real hope, real integrity and politicians who care about the quality of people’s lives and futures. That’s why I’m standing to be your Green MP.

Fair, free healthcare. Many of us are waiting for routine operations, for social care or physiotherapy, to access mental health services, or simply to see the doctor or dentist. The NHS that this country’s taxpayers fund was once the pride of Britain. As your Green MP, I will fight for OUR National Health Service with every breath I have.

I’m ashamed that we have 7 food banks in New Forest West. 14 years ago, food banks didn’t exist in Britain. In the sixth richest country, it shouldn’t be the case that people can’t afford to put food on the table. As your Green MP, I will tackle the cost-of-living crisis, increase the living wage, and bring energy prices down.

I love the Forest. We are so lucky to live in this beautiful part of the world—but I’m disgusted that greedy water companies are lining their pockets while polluting the rivers and beaches where we used to swim. As your Green MP, I will hold water companies to account and ensure that taxpayers don’t pay for fixing the sewage crisis.

As your Green MP, my voice will amplify yours. We are united by our shared love for the place we live, our care for the vulnerable children, older and disabled people in our communities, and our need for leadership we can trust. 

Lend me your voices, for a Greener, fairer future for all of us.
