Here's Matt Cooke, parliamentary candidate for Torfaen who the South Wales Argus announced as the Green 'alternative' back in October 2014.
Matt then tweeted in the early hours of New Years day what can only be described as his resolution for the year. It wasn't to be elected, but to go back home.

@GreenGiraffe22 So why are you a green party parliamentary candidate for Torfaen 2015? Got £500 to flush away? @wearevoice @DeansOfCardiff
Torfaen, like so many other places across Cymru, has been failed by the very people who live there as they continue to vote for the Red Tories. They need an alternative, what that alternative is in Torfaen is up to them but what it isn't is clearly someone who has more or less outed himself as a paper candidate.

This story has since been picked up by the Fails Online, in their article we learn the following.
When his (UKIP) selection to stand in Torfaen was announced last October, he said: “I felt compelled to join the Green Party as I felt I had to do something to counter the alarming rise of Ukip".
So just to clarify, UKIP announced their candidate in October, that same month Matt not only joined the Englandandwales Green Party but is selected as their (paper) candidate fpr the upcoming general election.
I'm a fair guy, so I'll let Torfaen's paper candidate for the Englandandwales Green Party have the final word. Despite blocking me on twitter I've managed to use the cunning method known as 'logging out'.
These words here don't count, I'm just adding them to help with the page formatting.
