Former Labour influencers are defecting to the Greens. Will you?

Last Updated: April 20, 2023By Tags: , , , , , , ,

The Green Party has adopted (or already had) many policies that made Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party hugely attractive to voters.

Already a number of local councillors have defected from Labour to the Greens.

And influential people like Matt Zarb-Cousin, who was a spokesman for Mr Corbyn, have also jumped across to the Greens.

The door is open for left-wing Labour MPs to do the same; they certainly haven’t been welcome in Labour, the way it has been run since (let’s be honest) 1994.

Here’s a clip in which Bright Green editor Chris Jarvis discusses the possibility:

His speculation on the possibility of the Socialist Campaign Group sitting tight in the hope of having huge influence in a Labour government with a majority of anything up to 30 seems spot-on, especially in a country where the First Past The Post system means people will be unwilling to vote for another party, for fear of letting the Tories back in.

Would you vote Green in a general election? Will you vote Green in the locals next month (if there is an election where you live)? What would be your reasons?

    Yes. Voting Green next month because local Labour is behaving dictatorially over a proposed draconian, no exemptions, Congestion Charge: they won’t talk to us, the people, at all. The attitude seems to be ‘like it or lump it”.
    The Greens however are saying “no deal without details”. So, that’s my vote sorted.
