Letter: I question his green credentials

Have your say

I am writing following the decision by Uppingham Rutland county councillor Marc Oxley to resign from the Liberal Democratic Party and join the Green Party.

I had instantly become a supporter to his new move being an environmentalist campaigner myself, until I suddenly realised that just two weeks before his announcement to join the Greens, he had taken a gas- guzzling carbon-emission bloated flight all the way to China and back by jet aircraft, punching yet more holes in our already thin ozone layer.

If Mr Oxley wants to stand on a Green ticket at the next county council election he had better practise what he preaches, otherwise I cannot support him.
