Publisher Adele Ward is standing for the Green Party next month in her first-ever general election contest.

The 57-year-old, of The Drive, Golders Green, made her electoral debut for the Greens in last year’s Barnet Council elections.

Ms Ward, co-founder of Ward Wood Publishing, will hope for an improvement on the bruising defeat she suffered last May, when she polled just 330 votes as a Golders Green candidate.

The mother-of-two said: “Thousands of people a year die in London of air pollution. Climate change is at a critical point now. If I live long enough to 2050, it will be catastrophic by then.

“The government are not doing enough. These are huge reasons I am standing for the Green Party. But we are not only about the environment.

“I get hundreds of emails a day from constituents worried about the privatisation of the NHS, education, fracking - all these things we have the best policies on.

“We are the only party which really wants to reverse the privatisation of the NHS.”
