Have they ever elected any MPs or MEPs? AnonMoos 17:49, 29 October 2007 (UTC)

Yes. MEPs, no MPs. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.0.9.55 (talk) 23:29, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

Daventy?


Should 'Daventy UK' be 'Daventry, UK'? I don't know but is this a typo that has propagated itself around a number of PEOPLE/Ecology/Green party pages?2.31.108.215 (talk) 11:01, 3 November 2013 (UTC)

Logo


The depiction here of the logo as circle is very odd. I was a Green Party member from 1988, and can remember clearly internal debates about changing the logo away from the 'traditional' sunflower that some felt then had been the logo for too long (see for example the sunflower at The_Ecology_Party#/media/File:Ecology_Party_Poster.gif(I can even remember that among the alternatives suggested was one of three ribbon banners blowing in the wind). The circle was neither an option, nor an old logo. Is there any evidence that the circle was ever used outside Hackney? DrArsenal (talk) 14:52, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

GP (UK) as party separate from Ecology and PEOPLE


It seems to me this page (and those it links to) gives an inaccurate impression. The Green Party (UK) was not a 'successor' to the Ecology Party - the Party simply re-named itself, with the same constitution, structure, policies, etc. Can they be re-worked to sort that out? I presume that the change from 'PEOPLE' to Ecology Party was similar, in that 'Manifesto for a Sustainable Society' (as it was then called) showed continuity across the change.

By contrast, the move from Liberal Party to Liberal Democrats was a two stage process. In 1988 a new party was set up, with new aims and a new structure, called the "Social and Liberal Democrats", and later it re-named itself the Liberal Democrats (see Liberal_Democrats#Founding). The name "Social and Liberal Democrats", and the subsequent name change, is almost totally ignored by wikipedia: name changes are minor issues compared to the structural issues.

Single page for People/Ecology/Green Party


A single organisation should not have a different page for its different names, particularly a defunct organisation. Take two analogies:

  • Green Party (Ireland), which was founded in 1981 as the Ecology Alliance, became the Green Alliance in 1983, and the Green Party in 1987.
  • Radical Party (France), which went through a whole suite of names between 1901 and 2017.

The advantage for Green Party (UK) is that it provides a single page for the full history of the organisation before its 1990 division. As it's a defunct organisation, it will be limited in its growth anyway. —Iveagh Gardens (talk) 17:02, 19 March 2021 (UTC)
