Greens increase vote share in Wealden

13 December 2019

Thank you to everyone who voted Green on 12 December: thanks to you we achieved an exceptional result in a tough election.

Thank you too to all the members and supporters in Wealden who helped us campaign. You've been wonderful. Right across the constituency, people came together to plan the campaign at short notice, design and print leaflets, knock on doors, energise friends, make calls, walk miles in pouring rain to post leaflets and listen to local people, make much-needed tea, make films, share specialist knowledge about issues that voters raised, and so much more. It's been amazing. 

Today we're having a small rest (it was a very late night) but we're already back on the trail for climate action and social justice. Above all we'll be making sure your Green voices are heard loud and clear here in Wealden and nationally.

This was a hard election to fight, no doubt about it, but Georgia Taylor is a fabulous candidate who brought a wonderful clarity of vision, knowledge and determination to her campaign. We loved being her team, and look forward to the next election with a glint in our eyes - if we can do this in a handful of weeks from scratch, what next?

The overall result was, of course, pretty depressing. And we have an MP who shows no commitment to preventing climate disaster, and who barely mentions Wealden in parliament. We'll be holding her to account with vigour.

And we'll be doing so with more members - if you too are galvanised by this election to take Green action, join us. We're small, but lively and active and we're making a mark.

Vote Georgia Taylor for Parliament - 12 Dec 2019

Voting Green and 'tactical' voting in Wealden

Voting LibDem or Labour won’t unseat Nus Ghani, no matter what they say.

Voting Green sends a strong message to the new government: Green voters demand significant change on climate and social justice.

Voting Green is a clear vote for remaining in Europe.

We encourage everyone to vote for the party that best represents their values. 

Why didn't the Greens stand down in Wealden?

A Unite to Remain candidate is only standing in constituencies where a Remain candidate has a good chance of beating a Leave candidate.  

The Unite to Remain strategy gives the Green Party significantly more chance of electing more Green MPs. 

In Wealden, the combined votes of all opposition parties won’t unseat Nus Ghani. 

Wealden Green Party is a successful party. We have increased our share of the vote in most recent elections and plan to do so again.
