What's Going On Here?
The Green Party increased their vote numbers by 64.69% in the general election, which is more than any other party. With a total of 865,697 votes last Thursday compared to 525,665 in 2017, the Green Party were the 5th most voted for party (despite only winning one seat - Brighton Pavilion).
What Does This Mean?
Ok so, ‘that’ happened last week and most of us feel pretty poo about it, but despite the result, positives can definitely be taken.
The number of Green Party votes overall and the percentage increase clearly shows that the fate of our planet is on a lot more peoples’ minds than it was just two years ago.
