I'm not a member and this isn't an advert - how big do you think this is going to get? Theoretically as a party whose natural constituency is 50% of the population they could become huge. Or not. The Green Party started out single-issue and is becoming a lot more widely accepted and supported as it matures. For that matter, Labour started out as championing the rights of the working classes and has changed into a "mainstream" party over the decades. Is #JoinWE going anywhere?

Not very big - How will they represent the other 50% of the human race.

Not - a political party which only caters for half the population is going nowhere.

The Green Party started out single-issue and is becoming a lot more widely accepted and supported as it matures.

Their policies are barking - I don't see them expanding - I think they got a lot of votes at the last election because people couldn't make a decision.

99% sure not
