A few responses to Blaise’s recent hustings event have questioned our party’s commitment to clean air by highlighting that we are opposed to the current expansion plans for ULEZ, the Ultra-Low Emissions Zone.

I thought it would be quite useful to publicly keep track of the earnings that I have made as a political candidate, including a source of any of those earnings. Right now, it’s easy, in that I have not taken any money from anyone for doing what I’m doing. I intend to keep it that […]
