Are the Greens the new Left?

16 February 2007

As Labour slides to the right, the Green Party is shifting to the left. Are the Greens destined to displace Labour as the main left party of democracy, social justice, human rights, peace and environmental protection?

Peter Tatchell interviews Derek Wall, Principal Male Speaker of the Green Party.

Opinion polls reveal growing public support for the Green Party. Labour membership is down and the Labour vote is down. Many people who are disillusioned with Blairism and Brownism are joining the Greens.

The Green Party is the fastest growing and most effective progressive party in British politics. It already has nearly 100 local councillors, two MEPs, seven Members of the Scottish Parliament and two members of the London Assembly.
