    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?

    It is a hypothetical question; I thought it would make for an interesting five years.

    Now that Ukip suddenly love the NHS they might do something about health. Both of them are parties of the NIMBY's so they'd protect the greenbelt.

    On every other issue they'd destroy themselves and the government would collapse by the time the budget rolled around.

    Considering OP is talking about the Green Party's membership which has exceeded the Lib Dems and UKIP, I'm sure we can safely assume the Green Party of England and Wales.

    The Green Party of England and Wales isn't as big as UKIP or the Lib Dems...

    Exactly! I suspect they will co-exist quite neatly because their main policies don't overlap.

    I think this would be a great coalition. Putting the main parties out of government would give everybody a massive wake up call and would surely lead to an improvement in the policies of every party

    Aren't the Greens the most pro EU party in parliament, while UKIP is the most anti EU party in the House of Commons?

    I don't know if the EU is a major part of Greens' policy. I'm sure they'd snatch the chance of being in Parliament. Perhaps they would agree to a referendum regarding EU membership

    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?

    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 constituted are fundamentally incompatible with the core Green values of democracy and sustainability."
