Expensive ideology

The Green Party seems to have “Trans Ally”d itself off a cliff.

Shadow hangs over the future of the Green Party of England and Wales, as the party’s official financial accounts suggest a legal challenge from a former deputy leader could bring the organisation down as a “going concern”.

The latest accounts from the Greens, filed with the Electoral Commission, reveal a warning from auditors that a “material uncertainty exists regarding legal claims” as to whether the party will continue to remain financially afloat.

Byline Times has learnt that this uncertainty revolves around impending legal claims from several gender critical activists – including former deputy leader Shahrar Ali, who is suing the party over alleged discrimination based on his views about gender and sex.

Shahrar Ali, an academic who was joint deputy leader of the party between 2014 and 2016, is a prominent critic of the Green Party’s official stance on gender issues, including the party’s backing for self-identification and the principle that ‘trans women are women’. He has stood unsuccessfully for the leadership three times, but is now embroiled in a fierce legal battle with the executive. 

Legal battles are expensive.

“What it can do is put the party in a position where it can’t employ staff any more and its member income is basically going on servicing the debt. The assumption is at this point many members will leave etc. so the income will go down. It’s not really about the compensation – which at £34,000 isn’t much in the scheme of things – it’s the legal costs to defend. 

“So the party will still exist, but in a much diminished state, with much less staff and much less success going forward because of it.”

All because of the party’s war on women.

Two women who were booted from the party for not submitting to gender ideology are also suing.
