environmental issues.

Alan Francis has lived and worked in Milton Keynes for over 40 years. He was a computer

again. With global warming and loss of biodiversity, we face the two greatest ever threats
to humanity, which require urgent, focused and effective action. At the same time, we are

Milton Keynes residents, leading to more poverty, ill health and homelessness. We must
reverse the cuts and create a more equal society where everyone has access to basics
such as food, warmth and a home.”
