In the 1990s I even became a ward party chairman for Labour but I was immensely disaffected by their purely Blair-ish attitudes of the time. I left the party and have since returned to my roots in Birmingham.
It has taken me untiil this year to realise I was wrong in expecting Labour to embrace what the Green movement stands for. I became severely disappointed - they are clearly a party (like the Liberals) who have had their time and now something fresh needs to grow in today's world. For the first time I voted for the Greens this year (in the European elections) ... only the second time I have not voted Labour (the previous occasion was a protest vote in favour of the Liberals in the early 80s).
It is the principles and ethos of the Green movement that are the only political relevancy in today's world. I retain a sympathy towards Labour, but their views are entrapped in yesterday's thinking to some extent.
We certainly need a system of politics that is centred on the idea of unity - of the planet, mankind and everything that lives - and their connection to the cosmos. Governmental policies need to derive from that concept.
