Greens release results of StandUp.UK on-line survey

In the run-up to the European elections, Eastern Region Green Party has been conducting an on-line survey, seeking the views of the public on a range of important issues.

The results show strong support for many of the constitutional changes the Greens have been supporting for many years - and not just in the last few days as other parties have done in response to the MPs expenses scandal.

StandUp.UK is a process of direct democracy, asking people to vote on a large number of current issues relevant to the need to conduct a major reform of the democratic system.

The results showed strong support for proportional representation for parliament, a need to end the control of MPs by the party whips and support for an end to second homes allowances for MPs, to be replaced by flats provided specifically for those MPs that need them. There was also strong support for fixed term parliaments and much stronger rules over corporate lobbying, which the Greens have highlighted as a particular problem in the EU.

Rupert Read, lead candidate for the Greens in the European elections has pledged to back reforms in both the EU and UK parliaments if elected.
