Greens support a People's Vote on Brexit

Ahead of the referendum the Green Party campaigned to remain in the European Union and we still hold firm to our commitment to Europe. It is becoming clearer by the day that Brexit would be a total disaster for the vast majority of UK citizens, even if we had a government with adequate negotiating skills, which we clearly don't.

Now that the scale of the looming disaster is becoming clearer, the British people are changing their mind on Brexit.  Our former joint leader Caroline Lucas's speech at the People's Vote march in June was a clarion call for a vote on the final deal.

Despite what other parties might claim, the Greens were the first party to call for a vote on the final deal (in 2016) and we have the clearest vision of a better Britain, better EU and better world.

London Assembly backs Green assembly member's call for a Climate Emergency

On Thursday 6th December the London Assembly passed a motion calling on the Mayor of London to declare a climate emergency in London and put an emergency plan in place.

Green Party assembly member Caroline Russell, who proposed the motion said:

“Catastrophic climate breakdown might be as little as twelve years away – this would have profound impacts on every aspect of our lives in London from flooding and overheating in summers, disruption in our food supply chains as well as in the wider natural world.  

“The Mayor need to be at the forefront of this challenge, declaring a climate emergency and an urgent updating of his carbon reduction targets to make London carbon neutral by 2030, decades ahead of his current plans, setting a precedent for other major and world cities.”
