Hello everyone, David from the East Renfrewshire branch of the Scottish Green Party here. This is just a quick post to let me check that everything’s working as it should, and to introduce you to our branch blog.
Over the next few months this blog will host links and posts on Green issues from the local scale to the international, alongside mini-essays from various members of our branch describing how they ended up here. It’ll probably take a more definite shape as it grows, so I hope you’ll bear with us as we try to work out how and what we want to do!
For starters, here’s an opinion piece I wrote for Common Space on why Green parties across the United Kingdom need to stick up for ideas like the Citizens Income if they want to keep up the momentum of the Green surge. If you disagree, feel free to let me know in the comments!
