    Basically, I have had no connection with Brighton since I was a teenager, when I attended a youth club in a different town and played games. What a lark! I'm not from London, you know.

    Looking at Davy Jones' CV, it seems he has spent his entire career working in local government and the Audit Commission and is now a freelance consultant. Nice work if you can get it but I prefer my local councillor to have knowledge of the business world.
    Very true. I see that Davy Jones still hasn't answered my question from yesterday about why not every citizen's contribution is as highly valued by the Greens - ie, if you disagree with them, your view doesn't count. So much for Green democracy."

First published in News

The Green Party has announced its candidates to fight for two Brighton and Hove constituencies in the next general election.

Brighton and Hove councillor Christopher Hawtree is to contest Hove against Tory MP Mike Weatherley and Davy Jones, a nationally recognised expert on citizen participation, will be looking to unseat Conservative Simon Kirby in Brighton Kemptown.

Coun Hawtree said: “I am hugely honoured that the Greens have entrusted me with our banner in Hove, a bellwether constituency for national election trends.”

Mr Jones said: “I’m thrilled to stand for Parliament in Brighton Kemptown, having grown up in Saltdean as a teenager, attending the local youth club, playing pitch and putt and, as a student, teaching English to Italian students in Saltdean Lido.”

Caroline Lucas, the UK’s first Green MP, has already been reselected to stand in Brighton Pavilion.
