Bronwen Maher is a guest speaker at a meeting being held the Green Party of England & Wales annual conference in Brighton this weekend. The meeting is being organised by Green Left. Her speech titled ‘Greens in Coalition – the Irish Experience’ tracks the experience of the Green Party in government and its impact on voters, the membership and the party’s future.
Maher claims that “The Irish Green Party party has lost touch with people’s everyday lives . The Local and European elections in June also showed that the crisis facing the Irish Green Party is that traditional Green voters will support a viable and credible alternative to the official Green Party candidate”.
