No, Sheffield is not set for a single party system!

12th May 2012

Dear Sir

The Green Party believes in multi-party government. The whole point of
electing councillors and MPs is so they can
represent a range of views within the city council or parliament. As the
third party in Sheffield, our voting power in the council is small, but we
have influenced the larger parties on housing, energy,
transport, community safety and many other issues. And we provide the
only opposition to privatisation of council services, for
instance waste management (Veolia) and the Highways PFI. If the number of
Green Party councillors reflected our share of the vote across the city
(10%) we could do even more.
