5 posts in this topic

The Green parties have overtaken Ukip after a record-breaking surge in membership numbers.
 
The Greens – who are devolved into parties in England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland – received a boost of around 2,000 new members yesterday after media coverage that they were on the verge of overtaking Nigel Farage's party.
 
The parties now have a total of 43,829 people signed up across the UK. Ukip has confirmed 41,966 members as of present.
 
Natalie Bennett, the leader of the Greens in England and Wales told London Live today that “there was an hour yesterday when a new person was joining every 10 seconds.”
 
Despite the surge in support, the Green Party has not been considered by Ofcom to be prominent enough to qualify for air time during slated TV debates ahead of the general election this May.

Getting a bit desperate now when trying to brainwash people that because there membership numbers are higher it is somehow a more popular party

 

An embarrassing article reeking of desperation tbh

Innit

 

As if Dave from Dagenham is gonna join a political party just cos he agrees with em. On a meta level, as if party membership gives you a more valid voice politically.

 

Even deeper than that, the Green Party's members are from a middle class or at least a class background, where mainstream political activism (such as joining a party) is commonplace.

No one is voting them though in significant numbers really. Anything to slow down Ukip's rise they will do
