Even more shocking is that I was just by-catch Original complaint/expulsion demand was against @DawnFurness for simply ‘LIKING’ my tweet – I was added when it was noticed that I was a member too She’s been targetted for speaking at a @Womans_Place_UK meeting
Thanks to all for messages of support, much appreciated, apologies only replying with a ‘like’ but overwhelmed with things to do & really need to prioritise getting an income somehow (dj 60/70th birthdays a speciality – ‘a great dance & an early night’
If the challenor debacle didn’t wake them up then I’m afraid they will be a lost cause until the shit really hits the fan. In the meantime there are serious environmental issues they are neglecting while chasing woke points.
I think you’re better off out of there, the party has just gone completely mad – that statement they issued. However I’m sure it’s a huge blow considering all you have given to the party over the years. They seem to be celebrating hunting down and getting rid of anyone GC
I had a disciplinary hearing on 9th March. It was actually added on to a complaint/expulsion demand against @DawnFurness for simply LIKING my tweet – she has clearly been targetted for speaking at a @Womans_Place_UK meeting last year
I was appalled by the Challenor scandal. Due to the Brexit shambles, Caroline Lucas’s performance, concern re climate change I had just concluded that voting Green was my likely decision. Then within minutes I saw this. Sadly I think you’re right.
I’m vehemently anti fracking and agree with much of the green party’s progressive policies, but their failure to safeguard and failure to act since they whitewashed their own report is a disgrace. Unless/Until they act I could not in good conscience vote for them.
Aimee Challenor has gone to the Liberal Democrats, who recently told women they’re not real feminists unless they follow the TRA line. So all the major parties have gone ‘woke’ and/or support Brexit. So it’s a bit of a pickle.
Bloody hell, Andy. I am actually speechless. Two words. Aimee Challenor. Have the GP learned nothing? That they’re embracing identity politics when collectivism and collective action is what’s needed now more than ever is just so bonkers. Labour Party the same.
So sorry to hear this, Andy. It’s absurdly disproportionate. I’ve just cancelled my own membership – it was due to renew automatically next month. The GP are still the party best matched to my own politics, but I can’t keep subscribing while this fuckery continues.
So sorry Andy. I can sympathise with the post ‘Surely no one can trust @TheGreenParty now.’ I just find this unbelievable with the deep knowledge you have of safeguarding issues for young people – something that the leaders of the party seem to be ignorant of.
Yep, it involved me mistakenly assuming David ‘Baloo’ Challenor helped produce both the graphics in this tweet when in fact he apparently just made the blue one The actual tweet I made was therefore untrue, so no point in drawing more attention to it really
My suspension involved another tweet I made refering to this
Andy Healey added,
Stunned but not surprised, that our newly elected Policy Development Officer’s first tweet was to share this mantra as if it’s a magic charm that will stop further exposure of the #Challenor posse’s program for the Green Party https://twitter.com/djandyhealey/status/772372974485794817…
The tweet that got me suspended (which I’ve now deleted) was earlier in this thread
Andy Healey added,
The timing of such an implied statement of committment to AC’s program, from a newly elected Policy Dvpt Officer, seems to me to be a clear case of bringing the party into disrepute It’s YOUR actions that have damaged your reputation Ronald…
Amazing. The creator of the graphic was the rapist the Green Party wanted to cover up, and who they failed to take action on. So what they are essentially saying is “we don’t want you to connect us to David Challenor” .
AC was given a ‘no fault’ suspension eventually after a public outcry, & then resigned, citing Caroline Lucas’s agreeing to meet @Womans_Place_UK & calls for re-examining my suspension & @Olivia4Hersham ‘s expulsion as reasons
Really? The thing with my expulsion was the they broke their own rules. Didn’t offer a viable opportunity for me to defend myself in person and didn’t consider my appeal. Regardless of personal objections due process should be followed.
Don’t worry about it. The Green Party have disgraced themselves over their lack of research into “the next big thing” (which turns into disaster – see Palm Oil) and their infatuation with tax upon tax upon tax, as the cure for all ills disgraceful and abhorrent.
@carolinelucas This on your watch & you know it is a witch hunt .What are you going to do about this?Will you have the courage to speak out again.I will never vote Green again & as for the complete disregard for safeguarding .What a corrupt party.With you Andy.
It is depressing beyond words that the most enlightened, most left-wing and least authoritarian political party in the UK has made itself prisoner to the aggressive, repressive, corporate funded, silence-all-those-who-disagree transgender ideologues. This will have its price.
I always gave a vote to the Greens up here in Scotland. Since they’ve become biology deniers, I won’t. I won’t for any anybody or party that believes magic words can change a man in to a woman, not even to the the Bingo Organising Committee
This is sad. Green politics in England deserves better than the shitshow that is @TheGreenParty . & before the Gender Stasi get interested, I’ve already left bcos of precisely this issue – though I’m now in Scotland. CBA to join Scottish Greens. Life’s too short for this crap.
Sorry to her that Andy, I’d hoped there’d be a review of policy after the Challenor debacle, (for many of the GP members I’ve talked to, it caused them to begin to explore the issue afresh, including from GC perspectives). But seems GP approach remains silencing dissenters…
If Extinction Rebellion turned the same way as the Green Party they’d lose my support and donations immediately. Thankfully I see no sign of that happening. Maybe refugees from the Green Party could get involved if they aren’t already?
@IanMiddletonX, you are making a fundamental error. Your #tweet implies that #GPEW#London staff & governance may be 1)Reasonable 2)Sane 3)Fair-handed 4)Democratically process led. It is none of these. At the moment.
I told my local GP campaigner, a lovely man, why I won’t let them put a sign in our front garden for this local election. I mentioned the shameful treatment of “dissenters” by the party. He was clueless. Had no idea what I was even talking about.
Very sorry to hear this Andy. The more the Greens indulge this anti-science ideology, the less credible & votable they become, & the easier it is for climate change deniers etc to dismiss them as irrational cranks.They’re doing irreparable damage to the environmental movement imo
So sorry Andy. I’ve stopped campaigning for my council as a Labour Member . I too was a speaker at #WPUK and my own council stopped our meeting. Greens would have been my alternative. Not now. This is the madness of herds.
Sorry to hear this Andy. It seems that despite Challenor leaving those who were involved in supporting or excusing that behaviour are all still in place and with the same intolerant trans agenda.Can never consider them as a credible party again.
That statement they issued was a whitewash. No common sense. No consideration for women’s rights at all (anyone would think we weren’t half the population…?). You are better off out of it. They are more concerned with TRA than saving the planet!
Bea is a brilliant person who speaks her mind. If they kick her out, they’ll bring down crap on our party from far and wide, I’d hope, for that reason alone, that our panjandrums wouldn’t be that stupid. Not holding my breath, though…
As someone else wisely pointed out, how can they use science to push for environmental protection and dismiss it in the case of biological sex? The Party has always been run by woke men. Women (non-men) are just there to do the organising and leg work.
What for? What’s the rationale for 2 years? GPEW continues to promote transcult ideology over science, and the human rights of girls, women and transsexuals. This rogue ideology sets back the Green cause in favour of fake science and big pharma. Losing dedicated Greens
