Power, corruption and lies

I have had some quite astonishing news in the form of a series of minutes that have leaked from a secret meeting plotting the take over of a democratic organisation.

Just when you think you are being paraniod, you find you have been unimaginative.

More soon.

" ... plotting the take over ..." Are you quite sure of that? Evidence please.

Conspiracy theories can be the product of an over active imagination. Look at all the 9/11 nonsense circulating.

What exactly do you mean by "soon"?

Weggis asks re "soon". Are you OK Derek? It's all gone quiet from you Sarah and Aled.

A wee bit worried.

You say all this Derek, and no doubt you'll continue to spin your own deceits, but you haven't bothered to stand against the people you claim are "plotting to take over'.

Sorry, but in a democracy, that's what you do. Don't like, don't complain, beat them at the ballot box.

As the sitting equivalent of Deputy Leader, you stood every chance of successfully making your case and winning the election.

Since you have failed to do this, you are either completely failing to do your duty, or you are just making trouble for the sake of it.

Does the fact that neither you or any of your poisonous pondscum Green Left fellow travellers are trying to hijack the Green Party for your extremist ends by having the guts to contest GPEx posts, mean that after over 20 years of trying to make the GPEW irrelevant, you will finally step down and leave us all in peace, you shit-stirring charlatan?

Well, Derek isn't the only one to notice undemocratic shenanigans by cliques in London. Leaving no room for a level playing field in elections. I think his post is pretty restrained here.
A coronation for Caroline Lucas then, sounds like the Labour Party to me! I know fairly right wing Green Party members who are disgusted at this, its not a left/ right issue.

I'm sure that Derek can defend himself but its cowardly to attack him and Green Left (which includes plenty of our hardest working and highest profile members, Peter Tatchell, Romaine Pheonix, Pete Murry, Sian Berry, Jim Killock, Matt Wootton etc....)
In fact is was Green Left that encouraged me to join the Green Party and it wasn't just a bunch of middle class academics.
Whilst I think Derek can be wrong on may issues, he is quite open about his agenda.

When will we hear about New Green Party, in the Style of New Labour?

All Hail Queen Caroline I.

Derek is a middle class academic, who also tutors rich kids at a private college who were too stupid to pass their a-levels the first time around to steal university places from hard-working state school students!

Engels would have been proud!

If you're going to launch attacks, at least have the decency to post your names with them.

OK Douglas, where was I inaccurate?
Happy to be corrected.

I actually think Adrian and Caroline would do a good job, but I feel in the dark about the whole process, just trusting people isn't good enough!

Canvassing in Brighton back in 2017 to support Green Party MP Caroline Lucas’s re-election efforts, I knocked on a door and came acros...
