While Greens in the UK have always suffered from a grossly unfair electoral system, in the European Union they have been able to flourish as part of a small but effective group of European Greens.
Since their first election in 1999, the UK's Green MEPs have been hugely influential in the European Parliament. Everyone living in modern Britain - and the rest of the EU27 - will have been touched by the causes they have campaigned for, and the progressive policies that have resulted.
In 2019 a #GreenWave swept Europe and the UK. Seven MEPs were elected in England representing seven different regions. Six of these were new MEPs, while Molly Scott Cato was re-elected in the South West region. Overall, the Green group expanded from 50 MEPs to 75 from 16 countries, making it the fourth largest group in the European Parliament.
If and when Brexit happens, the UK will no longer be represented by MEPs. However, you can access here the websites of the three longest serving UK Greens: Jean Lambert, Keith Taylor and Molly Scott Cato.
