Traditional Labor voters will support the Green Party in the upcoming London local elections to send a message to Sir Keir Starmer, according to Green candidate Sian Berry.
I said Berry City AM that “many people are disappointed with the Labor party” under Starmer and that there is “a real chance to bring people to us” in the May 6 election for mayor of London and the London Assembly.

Many of the Labor left are unhappy with Starmer and his team as they have tried to move the party further into the center and remove the Corbynites from key positions.
The London Labor Party is seen as a bastion of Corbynite beliefs as evidenced by the recent election.
London overwhelmingly backed former Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn and his manifesto in the 2019 election, while the rest of the country largely rejected the party’s left-wing platform.
Berry thinks this could play to her advantage to come on May 6 and that it gives her a chance to pass London Mayor Sadiq Khan from the left.
“I think people are starting to see Greens standing up for some of their values of equality, poverty reduction, worker support, supporting people living on council assets to get ballots, supporting tenants who are class. “Today’s workers who really do not have real security and rights,” she said.
“I know there are people who are telling me that they will put me first and Sadiq Khan second to be clear that they stand for these values of proper inequality intervention policies.”
Last summer when Labor equaled the Tories in polls by about 40 per cent, the Green Party was scoring around 3 to 4 per cent in Westminter polling target polls.

Now the Green Party is consistently voting around 6 percent, with a poll putting the party at 7 percent.
This increase coincides with a drop in popularity for Starmer in the last four months after Labor fell in the mid-30s in recent polls.
Khan also focused heavily on green issues in his presentation Tuesday, suggesting he is aware of losing votes from the left to the Green Party.
“I think the time when the mayor said ‘green’ on Tuesday was a massive compliment to us and shows the huge impact we have had and Londoners should not believe he has fixed everything because these gaps still exist,” Berry said.
The release of the Berry manifesto came yesterday and saw the Green co-leader cancel the 2 billion tunnel river crossing at Silvertown, set targets to make carbon neutral in London before 2030 and implement a road pricing system across Greater London to replace the Density Tariff in central London.
She also said City AM that she wanted to see some of the changes brought about by Covid-19, such as homework, to become more permanent.

“I think we should think of central London a little bit more as a place where you go to spend money and money, but where there is more to do that is a good value,” she said.
“Then the essentials – work, lunch, business – should probably be more in the local areas and more scattered around the city.”
