The prime ministers’ spokesperson recently said that people should join the Green Party to save the planet.
The Independent wrote:
Asked why she thought other parties and organisations like the Green Party or Greenpeace were critical of her advice, she said: “When people say to me, ‘What can they do?’, they can do many things, they can join Greenpeace, they can join the Green Party, they can join the Tory party.”
Green Party co-leader Jonathan Bartley responded to her comments by saying: “After decades of inaction from both the Conservatives and Labour, we would absolutely agree with the government that joining the Green Party is the best thing people can do to help tackle climate change.”
He added: “As we witness the Conservatives waste time talking about loading dishwashers and fantasy projects such as Jet Zero, it is reassuring to see that they do understand it is only the Greens who can bring about the real change that is needed if we are to prevent climate catastrophe.”
Molly Scott Cato, former Green MEP and economic spokesperson for the party, added: “When [Ms Stratton] said people could make a difference by joining the Green Party, she wasn’t wrong.”
