Green Party Members: A Profile

Wolfgang Rüdig, Lynn Bennie, Mark N Franklin

Research output: Book/ReportBook


The sensational success of the British Green Party in the June 1989 elections to the European Parliament, in which they obtained 14.5% of the vote and moved into third place among British parties, catapulted the party into the limelight, a position which it had not enjoyed in its previous 16 year history.

For many commentators, the success of the Greens at the European elections was just a flash in the pan, a protest vote without an enduring commitment to green politics. The decline of the party's standing in the polls in the last two years appears to vindicate this view. With a General Election due to be held within the next twelve months, will the Green Party be able to recover some of its political standing, or is it irrevocably destined to fester on the fringe of British politics?
