Watch: Green Party leader Andy D’Agorne on ‘negative campaigning’ and losing after 20 years

Former councillor Andy D'Agorne

York Green Party leader Andy D’Agorne was until this election deputy leader of City of York Council.

Today he lost his seat and the Green Party was wiped out – all three Greens lost out.

They were the junior partner in the ruling coalition with the Lib Dems.

Andy had been a councillor working for York for 20 years. Here, he reflects on the Blue Badge row, the national factors that affected voting, and what he saw as negative campaigning both in York and nationally by Labour.
