    The Greens are openly sexist and right on the border between extreme social democracy and socialism (a command economy). They hate the monarchy, they hate NATO and they want our overseas territories gone, they also want the union to end.

    Labour is basically a little bit more moderate on economic issues (social democrat rather than socialist) however they have appointed an openly racist shadow home sec and officially don't agree with abolishing our historic institutions and alliances albeit the leadership does support those positions. It is unclear how long they will hold out.
    As much as i agree with you on this . How are the Green Party Sexist ?

    As with the person above saying that Abbot is "openly racist" it's probably because they deal with women's rights and have a bit of feminism thrown in.

    We're in a odd era where "anti-racism is code for anti-White" and women's rights is taking away men's rights,so that's probably here that stems from.

    Abbot talks about white men at the top and in the media "playing divide and rule",therefore must be a racist.

    Sadly they don't have much rhetoric and analysis beyond that,and these things are useful populist one liners that are easy to repeat.

    One of their manifesto policies was to release female convicts. Their logic was lower re-offending rates but for me it's extremely sexist.

    Any extremist ideology needs to be enforced, hate to break it to you, people don't revolt against moderate ideologies because they generally just think "meh kinda disagree but w/e" but when you impose communism or fascism then it inevitably needs strict censorship, a police state and a strong military, because extremes ultimately create very unhappy people, who generally try and get rid of said extremist government
    This kind of rhetoric is annoying.

    Extreme vs moderate. These are terms used to justify what you think is right and wrong. Moderate sounds reasonable. Extreme sounds unreasonable. [THIS IN ITSELF IS CENSORSHIP]

    Censorship, a police state and strong military all exist now. Let's not get all Utopian and idealistic about the current environment. Look at the US. They have Guantanamo bay. If China had a prison like that, they are evil. It's all anti socialist/communist propaganda.

    Define extreme and moderate.

    Authoritarianism is exercised in a variety of ways. Capitalism itself is inherently authoritarian in structure. "Listen to me because I have the money". Private ownership of all the tools used to communicate values, news and agendas. Certain ideas and issues are not discussed or demonized. If you challenge the state, you will get destroyed. etc etc etc look at anyone that challenges the US government.

    The state is strong no matter where you go. The issue is not the strength of the state. The issue is who does the state operate for. Does it operate for the capitalist or the proletariat?

    Pretty much nobody except for idiots who believe cultural Marxism is a thing believes "anti-racism is code for anti-White" as it's an extreme position. So no, we're not in an "era" of that and no, that's not what criticism of Dianne Abbott stems from. Disliking that wretched agitator Abbott is a normal and reasonable position so don't even try to associate it with that crap above. It's so disingenuous and it won't wash I'm afraid.*

    The Labour Party, under someone who is actually left-wing like Corbyn, is better.

    Pity only the PLP and its supporters seem to realise this.

    Other than Labour being center-left and Green being left-wing, what are the differences between the party in terms of policies and so on? And which one do you tend to agree with, or disagree with?
    Old Labour+ Environmental activists = Greens.

    Jeremy Corbyn coincidentally would be a perfect Green leader
