Might as well give them a thread of their own. Interesting result in a council by-election last night.

I used to dismiss the Greens as a one issue pressure group at one time, but I've changed my opinion on them and I now think they are worth considering. I strongly agree with the Greens on two issues, wasteful consumerism and unrestricted development on green belt, which has become a live issue where I live, in Handforth, as a huge housing development which no one wants is being imposed upon us and it is on green belt land
