I have finally managed to tot up the figures of Green Party candidates in the London Local Elections - 844!!! That's a record and we are also standing in every single borough for the first time.

Also, we have a wider ethnic variety. In my own Barnet Green Party we have 16 different ethnicities standing. We also have ages between 19 and 72 and 40% women.

844 candidates meant getting 8,440 signatures in a little over a week. That took a fair amount of work and organisation, but does demonstrate the logistical ability and confidence of the Green Party and that we are a power to reckoned with!

The word coming from the doorsteps is extremely positive (actually that's an understatement, but I don't want to tempt providence)plus our membership is increasing in leaps and bounds.

All-in-all, a hectic but inspiring time to be Coordinator of the London Federation of Green Parties
3am bed most mornings, but well worth it.
