YouGov polls (Source Below) are now showing that Catherine Rowett stands a good chance of being elected as the first Green MEP in the Eastern Region. These latest statistically significant polls take into account regional variations and show Greens holding a winning position in the Eastern Region. Further analysis of the data indicates that many Labour voters are turning to the Greens, recognising that the Green Party can win under the fair voting system used for European parliamentary elections.
In spite of some misleading opinions put out by other Remain parties, the voting system does not lend itself to tactical voting or alliances, and voting Green is the only meaningful vote for those who support the central Green policies on tackling the climate crisis and protecting public services. Given the stance of the major Westminster parties, people also recognise that a Green vote is a strong vote against Brexit that also protects people’s livelihoods and the wellbeing of the planet.
