Unlike other parties running in today's EU elections the green party have specifically gone into detail about species which require greater protection and wish to reform the common agricultural policy to allow biodiversity to flourish on farmland.
Plus they specifically mention the UK hedgehog decline, a critical issue which needs urgent attention.
In the closing days of the European election campaign, Labour’s high command has suddenly noticed that the party’s core supporters could be tempted to vote for UKIP. However, it has ignored the very real threat from the Green party for too long. It had better hope that few voters read the Green European election manifesto. This is far more ambitious than Labour’s. The Green manifesto promises more support for bees, whose colonies are in collapse and whose disappearance would be a self-inflicted environmental catastrophe. The Greens also offer voters a chance to support the hedgehog and the Iberian lynx. Labour’s mentions none of these creatures.
