Green surge has 'blown the doors off British politics'

With the latest YouGov poll for potential voting in 2015 putting the Green Party ahead of UKIP on 26%, Green Party Leader Natalie Bennett has said that the future of politics lies truly in the hands of the UK electorate as never before.

"More and more people are considering voting Green next Spring. As more people get the opportunity to hear about Green policies and values, they are liking what they hear and deciding to vote for real change. The chance to create a peaceful revolution in British politics is in voters’ hands, and they looks increasingly ready to seize that opportunity."

The Green Party are currently polling with their highest figures ahead of a General Election since 1989 and polling experts say this has paved the way for the 2015 General Election to be a five-horse race.

Ms Bennett continued: "The UK electorate’s dissatisfaction with traditional two and a half party politics is clear for all to see. Tactical voting hasn’t delivered a society that works for the common good, and voters know if they vote Green there is a real chance for an alternative to Westminster’s failed politics."

The Green Party argues that 'draconian austerity measures from the Coalition' Government has left millions of households on or over the edge of disaster. Unhappiness with the 'savage cuts to welfare', a widening gap between the richest in society and the rest of us, rising energy bills and a lack of Government commitment in a carbon-neutral future has seen a surge in support for the Green Party.

Natalie Bennett concluded: "Now is the time for voters to be bold. If you believe in a fairer society, a society where every worker earns a living wage, a society creating jobs that you can build a life on, then vote Green."
