Young Greens.

I have always been a strong supporter of the Young Greens – they are the future, after all. I am delighted to have the endorsement of two of the ‘leading lights’ of London Young Greens in the GLA selection contest.

Jonathan Buckner has been the best ever London Youth & Student Officer in my memory (maybe apart from the incomparable Chris Cotton).

I have watched Zain Sirdar, from my local party, grow in stature over the last few years. He has done trojan work connecting us to the local trade unions and is now Youth Officer of the Barnet Trades Council.

Both Zain and Jonathan were deeply involved in recent student protests and were kettled in one for nine hours! Zain presented the anti-kettling petition at the most recent meeting of the Metropolitan Police Authority.

Here is what they have to say:

“Noel Lynch is an excellent candidate for the London Assembly. He is extremely approachable, knowledgeable and good listener who really cares about the thoughts of ordinary people. Far from the career minded modern politician, Noel is one of those rare lovable characters who, at a time of great austerity, displays genuine empathy with those who feel let down by society. His unwavering support for young people and his attitude to youth issues cements his position as a guiding light within the Green Party.”
Zain Sardar (Youth officer, Barnet trades Council)

'Noel is an excellent candidate. He is friendly and approachable and has been a strong supporter of young members for as long as I have known him. I feel confident that if selected he will continue to stand side-by-side with students and young members both during and after the election campaign.'
'In addition, Noel also sports a fine beard, and if this doesn't convince you, nothing will!'
Jonathan Buckner, London Fed Youth & Student Officer.
