Green taxes are a tax that the government put on your fuel bills to use in order to generate "green electricity" (eg, off-shore wind and other renewable sources). This photo shows that environmental taxes account for 8% of energy bills:

They're controversial. A couple of months ago, David Cameron vowed to "roll back the green taxes" in Prime Ministers Questions time. This is controversial because the Conservative party under Cameron have tried to promote themselves as the "green party" (eg, in 2006 they changed their party logo from a torch to a tree). By lowering green taxes in order to lower energy bills, they are sidelining (u-turning) green issues.

For your second question I'd look into:
Blair's - minimum wage; education reforms; health care
Blair, Brown and Cameron all vowed to protect the NHS
