Thank you for voting Green

18 December 2019

Thank you to the brave 1,694 voters who voted Green at this election. They all knew that we were not going to win but they voted Green anyway! Why did they?

At the election count our candidate Cllr Louis Stephen said:

"They voted Green because they wanted to change the way the country does politics:

  • More co-operative, less tribal.
  • More for the long term than the short term.

There is more that unites us than divides us.

Our current voting system pushes us towards this more tribal / negative style of government and campaigning. In most general elections the party taking power receives fewer than half the votes yet gets to run the country as if they had received a majority of votes – how can that be fair, how can that be democratic?

There is an increasing pressure on both the Conservatives and Labour to reform our voting system. If you want to see a different style of collaborative politics and fair votes I urge you to work within your parties to bring in a fair voting system."

Petition: Cycle parking at Worcester City Museum

Worcester City Museum has no public cycle parking. The City Museum is situated on a cycle lane. Cycle parking would mean that City Museum visitors can make sustainable transport choices and help ease the City's traffic congestion.
