Subject: RE: BS: UK thread, Politics and political
i went to a green party conference in scarborough as a (labour party) observer last year, and actually stood for them for council about 5 years ago and have voted for the in the last euro elections. i continually bang on about green (and scottish) issues in labour constituency meetings. the 'green new deal' is an important initiative that everyone with good will can get behind. It has never caused any difficulty for me in the labour party. there are many areas that the 2 parties should co-operate with. i guess i'm selling out but i wouldn't want to become self-indulgent and bitter, insulting allies who are really doing what we can with the tory problem and saving the environment. all is a bit chaotic no-one really knows the best way to fight the good fight. but we need to be generous to each other. apart from the fu$$ing liberals obviously
