Douglas Johnson, leader of the Green Councillor Group commented “What a government of chaos, as the dominos tumble! This would be funny had the Conservatives not managed to wreck the economy, leaving many people struggling with much higher food, fuel and housing costs.
“The only way anyone can have the mandate to govern the country now is with a general election and let the people decide, not a small number of Conservative Party MPs.
“Meanwhile, Green councillors in Sheffield and across the country will continue to do what we can to stand up for our communities, tackle the climate emergency and work hard for a better future for us all.”
Umberto Albarella, Chair of Sheffield Green Party said “I completely agree with Caroline Lucas, who said anything other than a General Election is undemocratic. The Tory Party has spent its time in government to wreck the country for the interest of the few. They have substantially eroded our liberty, compromised environment and economy, and brought our country into disrepute. While people starve and struggle we cannot possibly afford to have another incompetent Tory Prime Minister in charge. Enough is enough” ”
Sheffield Central Green Party Candidate, Alison Teal said “The Tories have no electoral mandate to impose Austerity 2. Our Council and the people of Sheffield can not afford more cuts to vital services. We must have a General Election now.”
