Doorstep opinion survey
Our doorstep opinion survey of Petersfield’s Rother ward revealed a near unanimous desire that the East Hampshire District Council accept all plastics for cycling. The District Council was also criticised for not recycling other common waste products, including tin foil and food. Many were puzzled by why waste food was not taken away, composted and turned into soil conditioner that then could be sold at a profit.
We also found that the idea of erecting “switch off your engine” signs at approaches to railway level was also very popular. Other common topics that people raised were parking, especially near schools, the poor state of roads and lack of cycle lanes.
The generally positive response on the doorstep and the extended debriefing session over refreshments lead the canvassers to pronounce the day a great success.
Brexit street survey in Petersfield
The Green Party’s policy on Brexit:
Now that the exit deal is known we should be given the opportunity to either accept it or remain in the Union by a People’s Vote.
On Saturday 13th October the people of Petersfield were polled on their attitude to Brexit. They were approached at random as they passed through The Square.
Three question were asked:
Question1 - Do you think the Brexit negotiations are going well?
Question 2 - Do think that the final Brexit deal will be the one that you wanted at the time of the referendum?
Question 3 – Would you like a final say (People’s Vote) on the final Brexit deal?
The results were:
Yes18% No 79%
Yes 12% No 83%
Yes 70% No 28%
So a huge majority were pessimistic about the outcome of the Brexit deal.
Very close to three quarters want a People’s Vote on the deal.
And just look at what young people think:
100% of the under 30s thought the negotiations were not going well
100% of the under 30s not do expect a good outcome
100% of the under 30s wanted a People's Vote
