Edinburgh Greens say they are approaching the final day of the campaign with renewed energy and optimism. In Edinburgh East, where Robin Harper is contesting the Greensâ€™ number one target seat in Scotland, party activists are delivering final “eve of poll” reminder cards throughout the area tonight (Wednesday 5 May).Â On election day Robin will be touring the polling stations, by foot and also courtesy of a City Car Club vehicle.Robin said:
“Thereâ€™s been two campaigns in 2010: a TV campaign, seriously short on substance from which genuinely alternative voices have been excluded; and the real campaign in communities and on doorsteps where the response to the Greensâ€™ message has been excellent.
“In Edinburgh East, the Tories and Lib Dems are nowhere to be seen. Here itâ€™s Green votes that are challenging the status quo.
“The only positive future for Scotland and Edinburgh is a green future. And Green votes and Green representatives are the surest way to get there.”
Keith Stark Manager of Edinburgh City Car Club said:
“Joining and using a City Car Club car is just one of many practical steps that people can take to reduce carbon emissions in Edinburgh. I am delighted to see politicians doing more than just talking the talk.”
