Recently departed Green Party Co-Leader Jonathan Bartley joins It’s Bloody Complicated.
Jonathan stepped down as Green co-leader in July. He is now focusing his energy on helping to build a progressive alliance, saying to the Guardian that ‘there is a progressive majority in this country but we will have Conservative governments as far as we can see because of first past the post’.
He spoke about why we need a progressive alliance – and why there must be something in it for the Greens – as well where the Greens' next seat in Parliament might come from, defending the right to protest and his unusual journey to the leadership of a political party.
