Green MP Caroline Lucas has stepped down as co-leader of the Green Party to focus "even more on her work in Parliament and in her constituency, rather than standing for re-election.

Green Party leaders are elected for two years and a fresh election is due to take place this summer, with nominations opening in June and a result announced in September.

Read the full story here.

What do you make of this? Are you sad she's stepping down? What did you make of her as a leader? Would or have you ever voted Green?

She should join the Labour party.

I don't see the point of the Green party at the moment. But then i only supported and voted for it as a left protest vote (in a safe seat) as I was unhappy with the Labour party. If you are that kind of Green surely you would put all your energies into getting the current left labour party into power and not creating a split in the left vote?

There is however a strain of green liberalism in the Green party that is closer to where the Lib Dems are. Also as someone put it on the Trashfuture podcast Greens are just Tories with dreadlocks :rofl:

I don't wanna be to mean though. I knew a green party supporter with dreadlocks who was involved in defending squatters. :yy:

The Greens have kind of had nowhere to go since Corbyn became Labour leader (except possibly in Scotland, where their pro-independence stance sets them apart from Labour a bit more, and where they're still polling pretty well), so no surprise.

Hold your nose and vote for them. You will only help them agitate against left leadership by depressing the Labour vote. Meanwhile work to deselect thier milk obsessed asses. Same goes for "that the nature of the hard left" Chris Leslie and the Erdogon supporting bell end that is John Woodcock (that is if he doesn't get booted out due to the alledged sexual harrasment thing). Same for all the other slugs in the Labour party.


The milk fiend himself.

I think the Greens are far more focused on environmental and systematic reforms rather than economic ones per se.

For example Lucas is a big advocate of PR which Corbyn isn't.
