Greens in United Kingdom

Greens Meaning in Politics

Description of Greens published by Mona Chalabi: In 1972, a group of friends gathered at a pub near Daventry and founded Britain’s first political party to focus on environmental policies: The PEOPLE party. It didn’t last long under that name, though, and was succeeded by the Ecology Party in 1975, which in turn was succeeded by the Green Party in 1985. Since 1990, the Greens have existed as three separate parties: one in England and Wales and one each in Scotland and Northern Ireland. In 2010, the Green Party of England and Wales gained 1 percent of the national vote, giving it one seat — its first in the House of Commons. In the upcoming election, it is currently predicted to keep that seat, in Brighton Pavilion, but gain no more.
