    I apologise. I thought it had as they keep referring to the 2,000+ surge but that is England and Wales only. Albeit, let's assume OP means the Green party of England and Wales. So what is your view on the subject if that was the case?
    No, the 2,000+ 'surge' (nothing compared to the SNP's surge) is accross the three Green parties.

    It'd never happen.

    Its like asking what would happen if Wayne Rooney became Murray's doubles partner.

    A short summary:

    "The Green party is committed to a referendum of the EU, but they have not decided which side of the debate they would side with. They want the referendum because they believe that the debate would trigger reform of the EU, however if major reforms are not forthcoming, it seems highly likely that the Greens would campaign for an EU exit, since the structures and objectives of the EU as currently cofnstituted are fundamentally incompatible with the core Green values of democracy and sustainability."

    I was quite surprised by this. I had always considered the Greens to be left of Labour and the Lib Dems, and I had thought the trend was the further left you go, the more supportive of the EU you become.

    I still think the Greens would be unimpressed by UKIP due to the latter's views on climate change.

    Well let me try...

    David Norwood would be PM and Diane James would be deputy. Farage would be executed by a unionist hit squad before he could make his maiden speech. In his honour Ken Clark is made a lord and invited into the Government as Minister without Portfolio.

    The flat tax is brought in with the citizen income replacing benefits. DECC is abolished, all energy companies nationalised and then given to Greenpeace.

    The EU is renamed UK, so no referendum is needed. Sterling is set to a fixed 1:1 exchange rate with the rest of the UK.

    Greensleves replaces the current national anthem as the monarchy is privitised. The Union flag changed to a set of green hues.

    UKIP pull out of the coalition in 2017 having lost their way after the loss of Nigel.

    Second bullet point - just so you can understand where I got the information from.

    "Over 2,000 new Green Party of England and Wales members join in LESS than 24 hours"

    But I will end there it there as it doesn't contribute to the thread.



    Personally, I'd hate to see a coalition between the two, but I'd like to think the The Green Party (of England and Wales for Quady's sake) would come out on top and would lead to a more 'left' society.

    It's still nothing.

    The SNP went from 25,000 to 100,000 in two weeks last year.

    Well, you never know. In the Norfolk County Council, there is a coalition comprised of Labour, UKIP, and the Lib Dems; which receives confidence and supply from the Greens. This is all done to send the Conservative Party into the opposition. As far as I know, what UKIP and the Greens have in common is that they want proportional representation, and are seen as one of the largest anti-establishment forces.

    It would be great. Half the policy would be UKIP -that loads of people want but think they shouldn't. The other half Green policy that they don't want but think they should.

    I think the reanimated corpses of Atlee and Thatcher, along with their respective back benches, would function better than a UKIP-Green coalition.

    From the thread about the Green Party membership exceeding UKIP and now the LibDems, what if, just what if UKIP and the Green Party come out on top?

    Realising this is probably the only chance they get to be in government, they form a coalition.

    What would happen for the following five years?
    I don't think I could cope with the slick PR; the stage-managed perfectionism; the lack of spontaneity; the over-rehearsed interviews; the robot-like on-message candidates; the orchestrated encounters with a pre-selected sycophantic audience and the fawning media.

    Give me the reckless devil-may-care political risk taking and grass-roots populism of Kim Jong-un any day.

    maybe Greens and Labour would work better together?
