A positive message from the Green House – a progressive alliance?
The Green House was co-founded by Molly Scott Cato, now MEP for the South West and Gibraltar. In its latest message:
Green House has been working hard to keep up with developments and to provide analysis and space for analytical debate.
As the Labour Party conference drew to a close last week, we held a meeting in Brighton to discuss the prospects for a ‘progressive alliance’ for green and radical politics in the UK following Corbyn’s election.
Leading Green thinkers and activists were joined by others from the Labour, Plaid Cymru and LibDem parties, and by political analysts with no party affiliation, to search for common ground – and for unbridgeable ravines – on such issues as election pacts, a constitutional convention and a joint ‘progressive’ agenda.
Sufficient common ground was discovered to enable everyone to agree on a further meeting which will consider concrete proposals for cooperation. Watch this space.
