Green Party leadership election

Post by Woodchopper » Mon Jul 27, 2020 7:54 am

The England and Wales Green Party is holding a leadership election. Online voting ends on 31 August.

Here’s some basic information about the candidates:

They're also voting for their next appointment to the Lords. Here are the candidates:

Ooof, tough choices these. Hmmm. Tough tough tough.

Voting on that rather than it being the gift of the party leader does seem like a good idea.
