Green Surge continues in Rochester and Strood
To come a strong fourth on 4.2%, almost saving his election deposit and way ahead of the Lib Dems, is a great achievement and demonstrates that the Green Surge can happen in a squeezed by-election.
Clive has talked the politics of hope, not fear. He has repeatedly stood against the racist rhetoric inherent in other campaigns, such as the appalling statement by Mark Reckless this week.
Clive has rightly spoken of the political and constitutional crisis, the economic crisis and the environmental crisis.
Our vote in Rochester and Strood has almost tripled since 2010 while the Lib Dems and Labour have collapsed.
