General Election June 2017

Once again Stroud acts as a barometer for the rest of the country, with a suprise late surge for Labour seeing David Drew sprung out of retirement and into parliament. With dislike of the Tories among Greens at an all-time high, and the Labour / Tory race too close to call, many otherwise loyal Greens felt the need to vote tactically for Labour, which destroyed the Green vote. Ironically, many in the Labour party saw fit to attack us for standing, demonstrating an astonishing sense of entitlement (claiming we were taking "their" votes, when clearly the opposite is true). The end result: Labour (David Drew) 29,994 votes; Conservative (Neil Carmichael) 29,307; Lib Dem (Max Wilkinson) 2,053; Green (Sarah Lunnon) 1,423; UKIP (Glenville Gogerly) 1,039.
