People have been asking us if we are contesting the upcoming European elections. The short answer is no, we simply don’t have the resources. But even if we did, there is a feeling in the party that the failure of the three main Remainer parties (the Lib Dems, the Greens and the Independent Group/Change UK) to form any kind of alliance means that splitting the Remain vote still further would be irresponsible on our part. The main priority has to be stopping Putin Farage. We therefore urge our supporters to vote for the leading Remain party in their constituency. In the South East, this would appear to be the Lib Dems. The South West has just one Remainer MEP, Molly Scott Cato, so voting Green would at least help ensure her re-election. But the most important thing is to vote. The Leave base is more energised than the Remain one, and will be even more inclined to get out and vote now that they no longer have The Jeremy Kyle Show to distract them. So while we stand by our recommendations above, voting Green instead of Lib Dem or vice versa is still better than not voting at all.
