I’d also add that thanks to an electoral pact with Europe Ecologie – Les Verts (French Greens) the Breton autonomists UDB won councillors to the regional council of Brittany and obtained a fantastic score for the European elections. Now I know that in the UK things are not the same, not the least of which is the electoral system, but it’s still food for thought.
In the forth coming council elections, when both an MK and Green run in the same ward, then so be it. MK should show no mercy and let the best candidate win. However in wards where only a Green is running -no MK candidate – then why not allow for the Greens electoral material to carry a clear endorsement from MK, and, vice versa, when there is only an MK candidate – no Green candidate – then our electoral material could carry a clear endorsement from the Greens. This negotiated with a renewed and clear call for Cornish devolution from the Greens.
Of course MK need to try and stand as many candidates as it can in as many wards as possible but, where this is not possible, then why not have an agreement of mutual support with the party that perhaps we have the most in common with?
