Real Change–for the common good
Your votes truly did make a difference. For the first time ever we saved our deposits in Chesham and Amersham, and Wycombe constituences, and narrowly missed in the very very Tory Beaconsfield constituency. This means we have funds to help towards our campaigning. The national voting showed that over 1 million of the electorate voted Green – and yet we only have one MP, the fantastic award-winning MP Caroline Lucas for Brighton Pavilion. The Green Party is growing day by day. It is time for voting reform!
