I don't think it's as simple as that though. People like to pigeon-hole when it comes to a party's support. But in reality all parties of a significant size draw their support from a range of sources. The Greens have the eco-warrior vote tied-down, but they have also been trying to make inroads into the left-leaning factions of the Labour Party and the Lib Dems.I think if you're Green leaning, you vote for them because they are the only people who represent that particular bit of the political spectrum. I don't think a Green voter will pay any attention to this.
TBF this isn't a case of the leader not being quite slick enough or looking a bit funny. She leads a national political party but doesn't know what the fuck she's talking about. It's rank incompetence.I have not heard the interview but its bizarre how people vote on a party based on how good a leader looks in the media than whether they'd do a good job.
been like that through History and is probably why we've had afew god awful leaders over time. it'll always be the way, but it does show how as such simple minded we all are.
I think the Greens are aiming to take LD votes, but TBH, the seats in which the LDs are going to hang on are going to be all about the personality of the incumbent MP or the fact they're in a straight fight with the Tories (in the Southwest, for example). Any seats with a broadly left-leaning electorate might as well be given up on now.Lot of erections today at Lib Dem HQ.
