Working with other parties

York Green Party representatives have had constructive
discussions with representatives of both Labour and Liberal Democrat Parties.
Although the combined vote of Labour and Green councillors would not command a
majority, we have been keen to hear what Labour have to propose. However it is
difficult to see how we could get the kind of programme being talked about
through if we had to also depend on votes of Independent (ex- Tory) and
Conservative councillors. Our preference would be for both Labour and Liberal
Democrat Parties to work with the Greens on a radical programme to tackle the
climate emergency as quickly as possible.We await a response from Labour as to
whether or not they are willing to work with both Green and the Liberal
Democrat groups. Whatever the outcome, we would hope that both parties can get
behind a programme for the city that puts people and the planet before party
