This May, the Green Party saw record results at the local elections. There are now more Green Councillors on more Councils than ever before. We are the joint largest party on Bristol City Council, are running Brighton and Hove City Council, and are sharing power in Lancashire, Stroud, York, and Lewes amongst others.
But we still only have one MP. Incremental progress just isn’t going to cut it anymore.
The failures of the major parties have left a stranded mainstream, hungry for political options. The genie is out of the bottle: the planet is on fire, one fifth of UK children live in poverty whilst billionaires buy up all the housing, and the political elites are not up to the challenge of fixing our broken systems. There is now a clear desire for transformative political change.
So, we don’t just want to win our second MP. We can and must build a movement that gets Greens elected up and down the country and disrupts the cosy establishment that has failed us all.
With 7 years experience serving as part of the Green Party leadership, Amelia holds the learning and knowledge of the last three General Elections, and the historic wins in Councils across the country. Tamsin has the skills to capture a moment to make change happen - building movements that lead to tipping points that can turn the impossible into the inevitable.
From grassroots to government, we have the vision and the skills to deliver electoral success. Vote Amelia and Tamsin for Green Party Co-Leaders.
