    What are your criteria for being in the debates then?



    They are a Wales only party, they shouldn't be involved (I doubt they would want to be) much like the SNP shouldn't.
    Generally political parties who are represented nationally, not regionally

    Not really.

    If the Greens won 7 seats in NI, 9 seats in England/Wales and 9 in Scotland and another party needed 20 seats for a majority and wanted to do a deal with 'The Green Party' - who would they negotiate with?

    The Green party are represented in England and Scotland, which is the most important part of the country though.

    I don't know who they would negotiate with, that's up to them. They could negotiate with any of the green parties, or any of the other parties with enough seats. They could mix and match, or try to negotiate with individual MPs. Not sure why you are asking me this.

    Because you seem to think there is a UK-wide Green Party...

    No I don't. There is one covering England and Wales though which is more than enough for them to matter.

    Represented by two different parties calling themselves the Green Party.

    The green party broke up in 1990.

    Yes. Same reasoning as the SNP not being on the debates.

    I meant England and Wales, not England and Scotland. My point still stands.

    No it doesn't.

    Regional political parties shouldn't be invved in national debates. I don't care what Sinn Fein or plaid Cymru have to say. They have no national policies, only regional policies.

    If the green party grew up and became the Green Party then I'd grew with you, but as there's three seperate green party's in the UK that are ll different to each other, then they're a minority fringe party who between them have delivered 1 MP out of 650.

    My point stands because they still cover the vast majority of the UK population wise. Over 90%.

    Yes they deserve a place but it doesn't really matter because whoever is elected will only give you the same as what you're getting now. Newspeak and rhetoric is all you'll get. If you think you're voting for real change you're severely misguided.

    Regional parties don't get airtime, these are on national issues.
