UK Green Party can do more harm than good.
A outline of what Green party stands for is a non violent approach which i do not have a problem with, what i do have a problem with, as i imagine a large majority do as well is a reduction in military presence when at a time we arguably need it the most in the last ten years. In addition they would have the UK Trident missile removed. These are just some of the seriously harmful policies they would have introduced.
I think you are under playing the threat of foreign powers, ISIS as we know is now lauching various attacks on european soil who are we to know when the next attack may be or when or how big it will be.
ISIS aside The Week Magazine published on the 28th February an article called Russia's War games, it basically said that the military chiefs of the UK stated the England had entered a cold war with Russia. Why at a time of conflict would green party even dream of scrapping trident and all military forces possibly putting the 64 million inhabitans of this island in danger. The argument is of course the expense of war and granted in costs a lot but so will the plan to build 500,000 homes from scratch in fact it's so expensive the leader (Natalie Bennett) couldn't even mention how they where to obtain this funding.
Natalie Bennett failed to deliver the method of how they would fund a idea of building 500,000 homes. Not only does she do female politicians a disservice and females in general but she did not even reading up on the subject in the interview yet again proving the Green parties minority effect and just how chaotic it would be for them to gain any additional power.
Green party lacks clear vision and knowledge of future policies As i will adress in my next round Brighton and Hove is a classic exapmle of the disorganised chaos created by the green party. As we know the econmy is already on the rise and as part of a Conservative goverment it would be a priotry.
Moses_xTx_Secrets forfeited this round.
To conclude I would like to thank my opponent and I would also like to adress a case study of Green parties faliure in the only council where they can directly excert authorit.
This article is written by Notes from Broken Society" First and foremost, there has been a failure of vision. What does the Green Party in Brighton and Hove stand for? Ask that question and you will get a range of answers – 20mph zones, higher parking charges, meat-free Mondays. Those are policy positions; probe further and ask for the strategic vision, and you will for the most part be met by silence. Or, more likely, ridicule and anger. Like Liberal Democrat community politicians – whom in method and approach they often resemble – they have discovered the hard way that Government is hard and testing, and requires something more than pure oppositionism."
From this we can gather Green parties lack of ambitious meaningful vision on future projects or projects in general that are actually beneficial to the public effect there control.
Another major disruption of which the green party are the main instigators is their approach to local planning issues. The planning department within the City's council often recommend a planning application for approval only for it to go before the Green led council and be refused. They regularly go against the recommendation of these planning experts yet these green councillors are simply layman with no specialist housing or planning knowledge. They are following some delusional agenda that goes completely against Government directives to create housing. These refusals are in the majority of cases appealed and are considered by an independent body which regularly overturns the council decision and approves the planning on appeal. The cost of these appeals has to be paid for by the losing side ie. the Brighton and Hove City Council. This is unnecessarily costing the rate payers of the City hundreds of thousands of pounds every year. As a result they have become despised and a laughing stock and there is no way they will be voted in again. Locals have learnt their lesson and it has been a hard and bitter pill to swallow.

The Greens will for sure be the only ones looking to push much needed environmental agenda. The country is going to waste and hopefully they will be able to save the rapid degradation. I am a firm believer that must we must act now and push this agenda first because it will be too late very soon.
In addition, I still believe the Green Party's policy of redistribution is greatly attributable to the UKs success in the future generations to come. Conservative policies have shown to not work since early european philosophers, to Hitler, and to Reagan.All failed at the expense of their people while socialist/communist countries have prospered such as ussr and china.
