Time to bring the greens and reds together

Derek Wall (M Star August 11) makes an effective defence of the Green Party of England and Wales as an organisation of a left - unlike, as he acknowledges, the neoliberals of the old Irish Green Party.
The point does suggest a perhaps obvious issue, but one that Derek understandably does not dwell on.
Namely that if there is not an automatic association between green politics and the left, then there is a surely a process of argument, debate and struggle about the direction of such a politics to be had, not just within the ranks of the Green Party but in the wider ranks of those who see the link between a sustainable future and socialism.
