(ed:..this also needs to happen here in new zealand – for far too long progressive parties have cannablised each other – and let the tories waltz through the middle..(when will they ever learn..?..eh..?..)
with the most egregious example of this being their splitting of the vote in ohariu-belmont – and continually gifting that prohibitionist-douchebag dunne his seat..(now that just sets new benchmarks in ‘stupid’..eh..?..)
but that is not the only seat where there is this own-foot-shooting by labour and the greens..(do the bloody math..!..)
they both need to get their acts together – and learn from that history – or else they are doomed to repeat it..
..and for us to continue having bloody tories ruling over us/stuffing up our lives/the country..
get it sorted..!..please..!..
it’s called mmp – you all supported changing to this system – learn how to operate under it..eh..?..)
The Green Party has confirmed it will not stand candidates in a number of crucial Tory-Lib Dem marginals – in an effort to help defeat the Conservatives.
A Green candidate in Oxford West and Abingdon where the Lib Dems came second in the 2015 general election has announced she will be stepping down after a meeting with local party members.
