Any help you give us, from a regular donation to work on the doorstep, will make a real difference to getting more Greens elected in Wandsworth, where we can create a fairer, cleaner, more affordable future for everyone.

Template for letter to your MP 2017 calling for proportional representation

Dear _____,

 

You will be aware that in this election the Conservatives won 318 seats on 13,667,231 votes , and Labour won 262 on 12,874,284 seats; a 65 seat difference on the strength of only 792,947  votes  more.  Equally unsettling is the fact that the DUP won 10 seats on just 292,316 votes while the Greens won 1 seat on nearly twice that number, 525,371 votes.

 

Our First Past the Post voting system has delivered such a precarious and unrepresentative government that there is talk of another election.  But another election using our unrepresentative voting system will return another un-democratic result.

 

Can you let me know whether you intend to join John McDonnell and the growing number of Labour MP’s  supporting Proportional Representation and whether you will work for electoral reform to be in the Labour Party manifesto for the next General Election.

We will be holding a series of Action Days across the borough in the coming months and you are warmly invited to come and take part.  We gather at a pub or cafe for a short briefing session and then go out in small teams to knock on doors and make contact with potential voters.  You do NOT need to be an expert on party policy to do this as you can team up with others who have some experience.  Its a great way to get to know other Green activists and familiarise yourself with what the Greens can offer on the issues of the day. 

We always welcome ideas on fundraising, social networking and other ways to help the Green Party grow - e-mail us at wandsworthgreenparty@gmail.com if you have suggestions or for more information about ways you can get involved.
