I QUITE understand why the main parties do not want the Greens on the EU debate.

They are too commonsense and against profiteering by the big corporations.

Horror of horrors – they want to bring the railways back into public ownership.

Neither the Tories nor Tony’s Tories could stomach that. Perhaps they have too many colleagues with vested interests. What puzzles me is why the rail unions don’t go Green.

If a Green candidate does run for York, I’m not in the York constituency, can I have my vote transferred to York by staying with a friend on the Wednesday night prior to voting day?
