    Statement on General Election results

    Hackney Green Party were disappointed by the general election result but vow to keep building their support in Hackney.

    The Greens came third in Hackney North, but increased their vote share some the 2017 election by 4.1%. In Hackney South, the Greens came third, with a 2.1% increase in vote.

    Alex Armitage, who stood in Hackney North and Stoke Newington said: “I'm disappointed that we didn't get a higher share of the vote which would have sent a strong message to Labour to keep taking the Climate Emergency seriously.

    Now the election is over, I'm back at work this weekend as a doctor in a paediatric intensive care unit. Everyone here is frightened about the implications on the NHS of another five years of Conservative government.

    Hackney has not been heard in this election. The voice of our community has been muffled by the first past the post voting system.

    Our democracy is broken. First Past the Post has put Boris Johnson in number 10 and has drowned out the vital voices of the Greens and other parties from our politics. Just as we need a radical reform of our society to combat the Climate and Ecological Emergency, so do we need a change in our democracy to make everybody's voice heard.

    Tyrone Scott, who stood in Hackney South and Shoreditch said: I am very proud of the result we have achieved in both Hackney North & South. We have an incredible team of dedicate volunteers who have worked so hard to ensure we retain our deposits and increase our vote shares.

     It was amazing to meet so many people in Hackney South and Shoreditch who were so supportive of our policies and were really glad to see our activists on the street. We keep building our support in Hackney and are already getting back to work on the London 2020 campaign.

     

    Thank you to everybody involved and everybody who voted for helping us grow our presence across Hackney.”

  • Statement on Lib Dem Withdrawal in Hackney North

    Hackney Green Party deplores the comments made by the former Liberal Democrat Candidate for Hackney North and Stoke Newington, and expresses concerns about the allegations regarding the Labour candidate in the Clissold byelection.

    We commend the Liberal Democrats for withdrawing their nomination in Hackney North and Stoke Newington. Candidates and elected representatives must serve as a model. That means political parties taking on the bigots, the bullies and harassers in their own organisations and ensuring their selection process reflects the best of our community.

    Politics in Britain has become dominated by violent, aggressive and threatening language. MPs, particularly women, LGBT, people with a disability and people of colour, face a constant torrent of abuse via social media. Those of us who are elected representatives, candidates, members and supporters of political parties have to lead by example.
