THE GREENS have picked a film-maker and communications expert to run for Parliament in Poplar and Limehouse.
Tower Hamlets resident Chris Smith has also thrown his hat into the ring to run for council in Bow West in a bid to be one of Tower Hamlet's first green councillors.
He is a founder of the Ecotube website and is calling for better social housing, fighting education cuts, and encouraging adult learning as well as green policies including free home insulation.
He also wants to see lower fuel bills, reducing the number of empty properties in Tower Hamlets, more jobs for local people on the Olympic site and more cycle lanes.
