Green Party leadership contender Shahrar Ali has slammed the 2019 election pact with the LibDems as “disasterous”.
Mr Ali, the party’s home affairs spokesman, said the alliance “was an absolute disaster for us.”

In Brighton the Greens have once again regained control of the city council after the Labour group leader suddenly stepped down.
