Councillor defects to Labour from Greens – citing “mud hut” extremists

15th June, 2012 11:20 am

Devon’s only Green councillor has defected to Labour – and upon leaving Paula Black suggested that some Green Party members have “quite extreme views”, saying:

“The Green party is a very small party and doesn’t really have the ability to serve the community in the way it should. Labour is on a massive surge and I am not the only member who has joined the party.”

“It will mean as a councillor I will have the support of a bigger structure whose views are akin to mine. Some people in the Green party have quite extreme views – we cannot go and live in mud huts.”
