NFU biased against the Green Party
Duncan Kerr, Green Party Parliamentary Candidate for North Shropshire hit out at the recent decision of the NFU to excluding him from the recent hustings they organised for members in North Shropshire.
“In the email the NFU state that one of the reasons the Green Party was excluded because we have just one MP whilst UKIP were include with two. That doesn't hold water as in the last general election we were invited even though we had no MPs at all! With only five candidates running in North Shropshire there is no “practical reason” for excluding the Green voice, no party has been excluded from any of the other hustings. Since this hustings many farmers and farm workers have telephoned me to hear about Green Party agricultural policies showing that their members are open-minded even if the NFU officials are not. By seeking to stifle debate the NFU is not serving the best interests of its members or the community of North Shropshire”
