Spalding man Martin to stand for Greens if there's a General Election
South Lincolnshire Green Party has prepared for what is says is an almost-certain General Election before the end of the year by selecting Martin Blake as its parliamentary candidate for South Holland and the Deepings.
Martin is active in a number of local community groups, is a former Cambridge City councillor and has previously stood as a candidate in local elections in Spalding.
Speaking after his selection, Martin said: "I’m honoured to be representing the Green Party in what feels as if it will be an election for the soul of this country. Nevertheless, our national concerns pale into insignificance compared to the global threat of climate change.
