News date: 
Sat, 2013-05-04

 A survey by Vote for Policies which uses a "blind tasting" approach which asks people to chose which policies they like best shows that Green policies are popular with voters. We've known this for a while, but its nice to see it confirmed. What we need to do now is to make people aware of that these are our policies, and encourage them to break out of "traditional" voting habits.

High tech zoo threatens local greenspace

News date:

Greens are concerned about recently announced plans to build an "environmental tourist attraction" on the Cuningar Loop of the Clyde near Rutherglen. The development would remove an all too rare local area of wild ground which is home to some of our native wildlife and see them be replaced by a high-tech zoo housing exotic species from polar, tropical and temperate zones  in "biomes" where they never experience the outside world. Earlier this year, the Forestry Commission had revealed that it had  plans to develop woodland on the site. It is not clear whether the woodland would be able to be created if plans for the Wild Side development go ahead.
