Greens out of their depth

It is ironic – though Brighton and Hove residents would probably use another word – that Brighton’s Green Council cannot resolve the binmens’ strike.

So the saviours of the planet, after 11 days of non-collection, have to see piles of rubbish bags in the street.

As in most disputes everyone is seeking to apportion blame.

The binmen are members of the GMB union as are 4 Labour councillors on the negotiating committee with the binmen.

On one thing everyone is agreed- the young green “superwokes” are getting the run around.

It supports my view that, whilst the Greens may well be effective lobbyists, they’re incompetents when empowered with civic governance.
