Green Party policies put nation at risk

With so many voters becoming disillusioned with the old mainstream political parties, it is understandable they seek to find a party more in line with their expectations.

On the face of it, the Green Party is appealing to many, as they think they are champions of all things green.

I suspect a lot of their supporters, or those thinking of voting for them, might be quite shocked when they realise what they actually stand for, as stated by their party leader Natalie Bennett

These include illegal immigrants being allowed to stay in the UK, with all immigration controls removed, UK citizens being allowed to join terrorist organisations such as al-Qaeda and the Levant (Isil) and the IRA, scrapping the Army, Trident and leaving NATO and reducing the size of the RAF and Royal Navy, relying on some kind of defence force instead.

They are obviously completely blinkered to the fact the world is becoming more dangerous by the day and without adequate defence forces their suggestions would put both country and people at risk.

To be blunt, their policies are both dangerous and irresponsible and should only appeal to those who hate our country.

They clearly are on a different and alien green planet.
