Green Party victory in UK no big deal
The Green Party leader won her party’s first seat in yesterday’s British election. The MP elect, Caroline Lewis, characterized it as being a historic moment. Really it is nothing but a blip on the electoral map. There are plenty of small parties in Westminster that compete for attention.
Furthermore there has been no great ground swell of support for the Green Party. The Green Party increased their vote from the 2005 election by a mere 5 000 UK wide. It is doubtful that they represent a new force in British politics.
