One party that likes to do this is the Green Party of Englandandwales. Whilst they field paper candidates all over Wales they often spout little lies like they are the Welsh Greens. Their regional spokesperson, Princess Pippa likes to combine figures from other green parties and incorporate it into their own to make themselves more appealing.
So off I trotted to the Electoral Commission website where you are able to search for registered political parties. Note that it does not allow direct links so if you want to verify anything you will have to use the search page.
|There are three green parties for the four UK nations.|
|The first is the London based Englandandwales Green Party|
|The seconds is the separate Green Party in Northern Ireland|
And finally the third one is PP130 which is the Scottish Greens. Have a guess where they are based? Yep, Edinburgh. The graphic clearly shows they only field candidates in Scotland. They do not field candidates in England and they do not field candidates in Wales.
