This is interesting because the Greens represent a threat to both the Conservatives and Labour.
“@TheGreenParty to stand record number of candidates in local elections.”
Wishing them all the best and hope they win all over the country. ✊💚#GetGreensElected #LE2023 https://t.co/ueVO8byPHq

With the Tories, the Green threat is all about pollution; the recently-deceased Nigel Lawson once said the causes of climate change were not worth combating because it would cost too much.
With Labour, the Greens have adopted policies championed by former leader Jeremy Corbyn, many or all of which have since been dropped by Keir Starmer:

It’s a crucial time for one particular reason: the destruction of the NHS and its replacement in England by 42 so-called integrated care systems. These are in fact American accountable care systems, controlled to a large degree by US corporations like Palantir, Optum, Centene, Cerner and United Health of Minneapolis. Yes, they are now legally in place but local councillors in theory have some say in their operation. It’s a farce. They have no power. But they can scream and shout and explain to residents what’s been happening behind closed doors. They can vow to join campaigners to #TakeBackTheNHS. Bin collections and potholes are important. But not as much as life and death.
I wish them all the best, but it won’t make that much difference? Our system of government is archaic, broken and irreparablely corrupt. If we don’t change that there will be no change and the wheel will keep turning, again, and again
Cambridge voters are facing a heavy Congestion Charge in a huge zone, no exceptions. The Labour & LibDem elected representatives, although contacted, refuse to engage with the voters. Silence.
The Greens are saying “no details, no deal” so they’re getting our votes.
“Would you consider…?” Good grief, the Green Party has been the obvious choice for Socialists ever since Starmer reneged on his ten ‘pledges’. It’s only Labour tribalism that stops them riding high in the polls right now.
I’ll be voting Green, I couldn’t vote Labour in all conscience after the way they’ve shifted to the right.
