Former Labour men David Barlow and Peter Nielsen join the Green Party
15 April 2013
Former Labour leader of the city council and party chairman David Barlow has joined the Green Party as has former Worcester Labour Party chairman and councillor, Peter Nielsen.
Mr Barlow led the city council in 2000 and terminated his Labour membership in 2011 after 30 years of being a member of the party. Mr Barlow said: "The Green Party offers exactly the kind of credible, progressive policies which I have always supported and from which the Labour Party has drifted away."
Peter Nielsen said: "The Green Party has the ethical and moral dimension that has been lost in our traditional political parties, in particular the Labour Party. The Green Party sees environmental sustainability and social justice as inseparable. It is now 40 years old, and has matured into an impressive and credible political organisation that I am happy to join and in which I feel completely at home."
