Can only recommend that you ready the manifesto coming out in the next couple of months rather than this column from the Telegraph.
If their manifesto is anything like their 2010 one then their policies will indeed be terrifying.
They don't really know what the real world is, do they? Rubbish utopian ideas, for ill-informed hipsters. So many votes will be wasted on them.
The main problem I have with the Green party is that being environmentalist and left wing, it plays into the hands of the anti-environmentalists of the right who try to portray environmental issues as "lefty" issues. Though I suppose that's not really the Green party's fault.
As for zero growth, infinite economic growth on a finite planet is not sustainable or possible long term in its current form. Maybe Green proposals aren't brilliant, but they have correctly identified quite a big problem that should not be brushed aside. Why should the environment always come in second to "economic growth", which is how it is at the moment?
I actually find that the Green party's policy to give prisoners the vote and its frankly idiotic foreign and military policy (Lucas voted against air strikes on ISIS in Iraq) are far bigger problems for me.
i do hope people vote for them no matter about the policies as they will take votes off labour
Something I don't understand, legalising membership of terrorist organisations? Gender discrimination in prison sentencing? What the ****?
I love half of it and dislike the other half.
Abolish the monarchy and faith schools? Yep
Open borders for all AND tariffs? Nope
Promote alternative medicine? Lol
I think I'm actually more supportive of the greens Now TBH.aybe they'll prop up what I predict will be a lab lib coalition.
Best of luck to them winning in their labour target seats.
