The party’s electoral prospects are poor. It should join Jeremy Corbyn and fight together for social justice and for the planet
It is surely time for the Green party to formally join forces with Labour. Sounds like an absurd proposition? It would unite the British left under one banner, bring one of the country’s most inspiring politicians into the spotlight, and reinvigorate the cause to save the planet from environmental destruction. It’s exactly the arrangement that has existed between Labour and the Co-operative party for nine decades: indeed, there are 38 MPs who belong to both. Rather than proving the death of green politics, such a pact would give it new life.
It is hardly controversial to point out that Corbyn is closer to Lucas politically than he is to many of his own MPs
