Green’s Equality and Diversity Officer Suing Own Party for Racial Discrimination

The Green Party is being sued by their own equality and diversity officer over claims of racial discrimination by the party. First the Labour Party, now the Greens…

Rashid Nix, who was until recently on the elected executive committee of the Green Party as the “equality and diversity co-ordinator” claims he was rejected from a paid party role in June because of his race. Nix previously told the Morning Star that he would take the complaint to an employment tribunal if talks with the party failed to reach a resolution. Guido has seen documents confirming the legal proceedings. He is now fundraising the legal fees

Despite their left-wing virtues, the Greens’ co-leader Jonathan Bartley recently came under fire for saying he would personally want to ban Halal meat, with notorious Green Party former MEP Magid Magid describing Bartley’s rhetoric as what he’d “expect to see from far-right groups.” There’s always someone more woke than you…

Green Party Candidates Struggle to Define ‘Woman’

During the Green Party’s deputy leadership hustings in Yorkshire and the Humber this weekend, the candidates were asked the straighforward question “what is a woman?” Guido would have thought the answer to be pretty simple. Listening to the candidates’ answers, apparently not. Guido has provided the baffling (abridged) quotes below…

  • Nick Humberstone
    • “I don’t think we’re going to get any good solution on this issue if we’re trying to define a word because people have different interpretations. That’s all I really have to say. I don’t think it’s a very productive question to be honest.”
  • Tom Pashby
    • “It’s a very simple question but obviously it’s heavily loaded and I don’t think we should be getting into political debate about the specifics of what it is to be a woman. A cis woman who can’t give birth is no less of a woman and you can apply that to people who identify as women. They’re not all going to be in the same exact characteristics. Some women are more feminine some women are more masculine so yeah, it’s not really something that we should be debating”
  • Amelia Womack
    • “I don’t think we can talk about this in binary choices it’s more complex than that. As a proud feminist my feminism has always been intersectional. I am very proud of the trans women who I work with whose experiences have strengthened parts of our movement and ensure that we’re challenging the bigger issues at hand and that is the patriarchal systems that oppress all women.”
  • Cleo Lake
    • “For me the Green Party does represent equality. For me personally I believe in diversity and unity within diversity and I think very often our differences are what make us collectively very, very strong. I would also like to say I’ve become, without having had time yet to dig in to all the ins and outs… very disappointed to hear of rows, internal rows.”

God help primary school staff teaching this stuff under a Green Party administration…

UPDATE 22 July, 2020:

Congratulations to Andrea Carey Fuller, a candidate for deputy leader:

How hard was that?

Green Party Activist and Former Councillor Confesses to “Dickens Racist” Graffiti

Green Party activist and former Councillor and Westminster candidate, Ian Driver, has confessed to a spate of Black Lives Matter-inspired graffiti across Thanet, targeting Charles Dickens, whom he describes as “an extreme racist”. Confessing to the crimes on his personal blog, along with photos of him carrying out the acts.

The Green graffiti artist also targeted a plaque dedicated to the blackface minstrel Uncle Mack.

The woke warrior’s blog entry, entitled “It Was Me What Done It!”, claims he selected the targets as they “represent the deep-rooted institutional racism” of the town, claiming Dickens was a “genocidal racist”. He also makes clear his actions were inspired by the Black Lives Matter toppling of Edward Colston. It was the age of wokeness, it was the age of foolishness…

The Green Party press office claimed to be unaware of the incident…

Green Party Spokesman Left Speechless When Asked to Explain Policy

Green Party London Assembly Member Caroline Russell was left stumped by Julia Hartley-Brewer on TalkRADIO this morning when asked what “making the world a better place” actually means in practical terms. Hugging trees is easy until you need costed policy solutions…

Not the first time a Green Party figure has had a bit of a “brain fade“. Thankfully for them, this ‘Natalie Bennett moment’ wasn’t in the middle of an election campaign…

Dumbest Green Party Campaign Ever

Just a couple of problems with the Green Party’s new campaign. Firstly Network Rail, the owner and infrastructure manager of most of the railway network in Great Britain, is owned by the state. The Department for Transport controls it and it has no shareholders, so reinvests all its income in the railways. Secondly, electrifying the actual rails would be a very bad idea. Most inter-city British trains rely on overhead power lines. Cheaper, safer and less dangerous for wildlife. Dumb campaign, dumb slogan…

Green MEP Discovers the Reality of Brussels

They say you should never meet your heroes, new Green Party MEP Magid Magid appears to be having exactly this experience in Brussels after discovering that the EU that he was passionately in favour of just a few weeks ago is actually a bureaucratic hellhole dominated by stale old white men stitching everything up behind closed doors. Brexiteers did try to warn him…

Magid even suffered the indignity of being asked to leave the Strasbourg Parliament by someone who assumed he wasn’t meant to be there because of the colour of his skin – the UK remains the only country to send ethnically diverse MEPs to the European Parliament in any significant numbers. He’s written a refreshingly honest account of what he actually found in Strasbourg and Brussels:

“Next to nobody in Brussels has any clue what the European Union truly stands for — beyond a flag and an anthem — and more crucially, where it is heading. And that includes the EU leaders and senior officials soullessly waddling through the corridors of power. When I arrived in the EU capital, I expected to find it brimming with activity and potential answers to these questions. Instead, I felt duped: Making a tangible impact on constituents’ lives is apparently not what being an MEP is all about.”

“In Brussels in particular, we need more transparency in the way we make decisions. Our institutions are plagued with convoluted customs, hidden handshakes and backdoor bargaining. I’ve seen it first hand already. How can we reject the accusations leveled against the European elite that we are out of touch, when the top dogs in our Parliament and Commission are chosen through obscure quid-pro-quo arrangements agreed over Champagne and truffles in Brussels’ finest hotel lobbies?”

“In Brussels, the go-to answer to a failed system is superficial; try a fresh coat of paint on crumbling walls. We have to be ready to burn down the house if necessary, to rebuild it in such a way that every citizen from Mansfield to Milan truly feels part of and represented by the EU.”

Looks like the Brexit Party could make it up to 30 MEPs before their term in the Parliament is done…
