Euro Poll puts Greens on 12%

A European election poll commissioned by the Electoral Reform Society has put the Greens on 12%, a level which would return 7 Green MEPs.

The increase from 8.6% in 2009 to 12% (assuming the increase in vote share was proportional across England) would be a dramatic result for us returning 2 MEPs in the South East, and one in each of East of England, South West, London, North West and Yorkshire.

Sadly the UK Parliament's voting system remains in the 17th century unlike the EU. If we had proportionality in Westminster there would be around 80 Green MPs.
