VIX LOWTHION ANNOUNCED AS GREEN PARTY NATIONAL SPOKESPERSON FOR EDUCATION

The Isle of Wight’s Vix Lowthion has been re-selected as the Green Party of England and Wales spokesperson for Education and lifelong learning.

The national Green Party this week revealed its updated team of spokespeople during a meeting in a community garden in central London, in preparation to reach new voters in the lead up to the next General Election – which many commentators believe could happen sooner than planned in 2024.

Vix, who has held the Education spokesperson role since 2016, stands alongside 12 other spokespeople and the leadership team as experts with lived experience and track records in their areas of expertise. She continues to be a Secondary school teacher in Newport. The spokesperson role is unpaid.

Green Party co-leader Jonathan Bartley said:

“When people get involved in the Greens, it’s because we have a deep passion for the issues that we care about. Our spokespeople like Vix work daily in their fields of expertise and know first hand the challenges that our nation must overcome in the immediate future. They aren’t just spokespeople, they are megaphones for a movement of citizens who want real change.”

Vix has said:

“I am unbelievably privileged and proud to be representing the Isle of Wight and speaking up on behalf of Green Party education policy for another term. Our schools, colleges and universities deserve much more support. Workers, students, citizens, families and educators must have greater access to training and learning throughout their lives.

“Education is central to meeting the challenges of today, and for our successes tomorrow. I pledge to continue to work hard to ensure that everyone in our country has free access to good quality, meaningful opportunities to be curious, to be skilled, and to learn about how to improve lives for ourselves and for the communities we love.”

the green party do not actively prevent house building on green field sites, do not protest at the increase in traffic, pollution, waste and reduction in air quality that all these new houses create – they cannot be trusted, as they are silent on the one thing that the green party is supposed to stand for – preservation of the environment.

This is the person, remember, who wanted to introduce 20 mph speed limits in towns all over the island to “reduce pollution”. She is so misinformed that she doesn’t even know that a lower speed limit would actually have increased pollution, not reduced it. This is because at 20 mph, car engines are much more inefficient, thereby giving off far more polluting gases, than they are at 30 mph. And she is a teacher? Heaven help her students!

When you have the likes of victoria lowthian as teachers, it is understandable that kids are having such unhappy childhoods. their heads are being filled with the toxic misinformation of the so called “green” extinction cult. If a teacher was a member of say, ukip, or even the tory party, they would be hounded out of their job. The future is bleak if the greens ever get any credibility.
