Thank you Natalie. Brilliant local campaign. Squeezed by the Corbyn effect which was very difficult to counter on the doorstep.
I look forward to helping get Rob Unwin elected as our fifth Green on the Council.

Well done for a positive campaign. I fear the Greens are victims of bad luck and a political system biased towards the 2 main parties in terms of both the media coverage and funding. On a local level full council debates devoted entirely to motions raised by opposition parties need to be held at least once a month with all cllrs of all parties required to attend. All scrutiny panel members should be opposition cllrs and all council meetings should be webcast. On a local and national level union members should be pushing for local branches to only support cllrs who will oppose outsourcing / privatisation etc. It is wrong that Labour cllrs in Sheffield who continually vote to outsource / privatise services are helped by trade unions who finance and canvass for them yet the unions as far as I am aware give no support to cllrs like the Greens who make genuine attempts to oppose such outsourcing and vpote against it consistently.
