The Green Party’s shaking up the meaning of political affiliation

The Green Party has every reason to want to change the way politics is done – it secured over a million votes in the election which, under a fairer voting system, would have translated to at least 30 MPs in parliament.

As well as making the case for proportional representation, the Green Party’s also shaking up the very meaning of political affiliation. It’s launched a scheme that provides an opportunity for people to support issues and campaigns that matter to them – without any of the commitment ties of an exclusive party relationship.

For £12 per year you can become a Friend of the Green Party, which lets you support key campaigns on the issues you care about – whether they relate to the environment, the NHS or airport expansion.

You’ll also benefit from ethical partnerships with companies and businesses that share the Green Party’s ethos, which should make sticking to your values that little bit easier. Here are just some of the benefits of making friends with the Green Party – keep your eye out for more over the coming months.
