VOTES FOR POLICIES https://voteforpolicies.org.uk/
And it also looks encouraging for the Greens in Bridgend, if they get their act together to put a candidate up!
If you keep visiting the site, it will update the figures as we approach the election. Despite all this, I still predict a probable lost deposit and 5th or 6th place, if the Greens stand. Finishing ahead of UKIP would represent some sort of worthwhile outcome.
As well as the usual Lab/Con/Dems, we also have Plaid Cymru, TUSC and our friends in the Pirate Party vying for some of our target audience (and UKIP).
With FPTP, it is a lot easier to hang on to votes you shouldn’t have, than to gain votes you should have.
Voting for what you really want is a tactic that too few run with – and the strategy of the left factions standing against each other makes it so.
If there was a SYRIZA-like coalition of the left, between Greens/PC/TUSC/Pirates, Labour MP Madeleine Moon would be out on her ear and have to start paying for her own jolly trips all over the world, instead of having another 5 years serving Porthcawl (I doubt she even knows where Wildmill is) handed to her on a plate.
P.S. Just to bang on about the same point a little more – here are the current scores for Ogmore constituency. The potential for a joint Green/PC assault on this safe Labour seat is clear enough. Instead, we have two people I have the utmost respect for going head-to-head and getting nowhere (I suspect).
