My Twitter assessment of the #ProgressiveAlliance

  • I was a strong advocate of ‘progressivealliance’ – til I saw what it did to us, in 2017. Greens,if we don’t learn from mistakes,we’re doomed
  •  

  • Ironic to hear opponents of so-called #ProgressiveAlliance called ‘naive’. There’s nothing more naive than the #ProgressiveAlliance delusion
  •  

  • Impt to be able to distinguish fantasy from reality. The politics of ‘progressive alliance’ is a fantasy and nothing more than that.
  •  

  • It takes 2 to alliance. Labour made very very clear in 2017 that they have NO interest in allying with us. They want to destroy or absorb us
  •  

  • So what exactly makes Labour ‘progressive’?: #HS2 #AirportExpansion #UrbanSprawl #RoadBuilding #FasterGrowth (ie Faster eco-destruction) ..?
  •  

  • Saying Greens are a ‘Left’ Party says to small ‘c’ conservatives “Don’t vote for us”, & to Greens “You might as well vote Labour”. #gpconf
  •  

  • We helped Labour to recover & get close to winning without ANY concession on their part on PR. We may therefore have made PR >less< likely!
  •  

  • Labour showed ZERO interest in ‘progressive alliance’ in 2017. Now that we’ve helped strengthen them,why on EARTH would they support it now?
  •  

  • There’s been no ‘progressive alliance’,& there won’t be next time either. The Green Party needs to stop dreaming & start being proud & GREEN
  •  

  • There’s no real alliance unless Greens too get closer to winning a seat.But we’ve now no 2nd places.So what wld be our negotiating ‘pitch’??
  •  

  • It’s pure fantasy to think Lab wil have any interest in ‘progressive alliance’,ever. They scent the keys to Downing Street on their own, now
  •  

  • Labour aren’t ‘progressive’. And every time you say they are,you are covertly saying that it’s OK to vote Labour and not Green. And it’s NOT
  •  

  • Folk tell me some Lab candidates are good on PR,or whatever. OK. Now show me the Lab candidate who’s good on green economics. #ThereAreNone
