    This is completely unprofessionally, biased journalism also I second the other comments in saying this kind of narrow minded perspective is completely disrespectful. Just think for a little long please; if you don't understand the reason behind an argument at all, then is it really right or proper to offer an option on such a platform so as to try and persuade others.
    For other people that see often these topics in such black and white terms I will just leave with you with a little food for thought; as the great Albert Einstein said "you cannot solve a problem with the same conscience that created it". I'm sure this little phrase has helped me see out side the box innumerable times, and so I hope you take it with you too. I ask you next time to remember to keep the end in sight and look at ALL possible information before arriving upon an opinion so quickly.

    Maybe Green power will protect us.
    Flower Power hug a tree and don't turn your cheek! God! god! Jesus is this really their policy?

    Not a very sensible set of options.

    "Grow up" is the only comment I can think of putting forward.

    Absolutely laughable that this could ever be taken seriously - as someone from a 'politically disengaged' group (young, student community) I came here to further consider my choice of party to vote for through a rational and informed decision and will leave here with the definite decision of never trusting the telegraph for any intelligent comment again.
    This article is a prime example of how media attempts to manipulate opinion in a way to promote dominant ideologies and will lower themselves to belittle and ridicule those that will dispel the disillusions that are so heavily relied upon for the success of the few. It's a shame that many people blindly accept/support these kind of statements.

    Well that escalated quickly! Didn't realise so many tree hugging hippies had the internet let alone computers!

    Surprised by the number of greenies who frequent the Telegraph's website. The green party manifesto is trash and the article made me giggle. Good stuff.

    Utterly disgraceful. As a respected newspaper you may not agree with a political viewpoint, but it is totally unprofessional to treat it with such utter childish disrepect. Shame on you !

    It's actually true, we have such a slim chance of being invaded by another country nower days that having armed forces is pretty redundant and a waste of money. The money we waste on stupid war could go towards far more peaceful means. You know, making this a country an actual safer and better place; as well as giving it a better image across the world.
    I guess you could make the argument, how will we be able to invade other countries and kill foreigners without an army? Well, here's an idea... how about you go back to the bloody middle ages where you belong?

    Disgraceful show of disrespect.
    Only way to put this sort of Tory politics is to vote Green.
    In my humble opinion, Bugs Bunny would show more respect for the voters than this.
    Time for change!

    The Telegraph has very stupidly undermined the slim possibility of a right wing party coming to power in the upcoming elections: ridiculing the Green Party will just consolidate the Labour vote. Time to think a bit more tactically?

    To treat the Green Party as a joke is ill-mannered and short sighted. My ears are ringing with the imagined sound of distant guffaws and back slapping as the entitled establishment buffoons who read the Torygraph tick the 'Bug Bunny' option (or have one of their staff do it) and enjoy the joke tremendously. They are oblivious to the modern world and their diminishing importance in it. It's high time they learned.

    Many people would prefer to see a fair, progressive and modern UK, run for the benefit of all its people and in a way which does not destroy the planet we live on. Hopefully the Green Party and its supporters will cause more than a few dropped monocles when the headlines are read on the morning of the 8th May.

    Playground stuff you'd expect to read in the Beano

  • David Dickson - 3 years ago

    What a despicable question, indicative of the contempt that alternatives to the main political parties receive from the established right wing press. Shameful.

  • Bryony Drake - 3 years ago

    Nice to see that the Telegraph is taking politics seriously... not.

  • Keiron Hewitt - 3 years ago

    I am disgusted by this poll and the 'journalist' should be fired immediately. The Green Party are the only hope left for Britain, yet the Telegraph are obviously funded by some other political party interested only in oil and money. This isn't professional journalism, this is a joke.
    Good job, Telegraph, you've joined the Daily Mail in their pathetic little escapade.
    Sincerely, a voter of the Green Party of England and Wales.

  • greg eason - 3 years ago

    How has this moron still got a job? Just another fear mongering, cyber terrorist dinosaur waiting to become extinct.

  • Alan Clark - 3 years ago

    What a disgraceful question to ask
    You want a decent poll on public opinion then here's my opinion
    The telegraph is just another propaganda rag for the political scum that run this god forsaken country
    You like to think of yourselves as a decent newspaper,well I beg to differ
    I haven't bought any newspaper in 6 months because of crap like this
    Hopefully many more will follow suit and get rid of all propaganda rags like this

    If you ask me, the writer of this article is gone all the way Miss Piggy, a Pig, a Muppet and a bitch. VOTE GREEN And someone fire this twat.

  • Bruce Stuart - 3 years ago

    Quite frankly to show this level of disrespect to a growing party & it's membership is quite breathtaking in it's stupidity. I don't vote Green but I do respect the people who do. This coming from an alleged 'professional' just compounds the error. Disgusted!

  • Josh Cleary - 3 years ago

    This is completely unprofessional. I can't believe the person who published this question, obviously feels threatened by the Greens therefore has to resort to petty games like this to try and discredit them. Voting Green here.

  • Stathis Lazarides - 3 years ago

    You are Squealer from George Orwell's Animal Farm and you sing to the tune of the fat pigs.You are a supporter of a fascist establishment who harbours child killers and abusers and you show how scared you are of the Green Party with this despicable display of fascism!!

    You dirty inhuman rats....

  • Stathis Lazarides - 3 years ago

    It is absolutely astounding that you ridicule a party that wants to put things right for everybody but at the same time you support concepts such as warmongering,destruction of the environment,destruction of social mobility,privatising and monetising all aspects of life etc....

    History will judge you as the most primitive,ape like human beings who couldn't see human potential outside your narrow scope of big business and war.

    Honestly,you are more apes than humans,i feel sorry for you and your children who will grow up with idiots like you!

  • Ross Harris - 3 years ago

    This is utterly disrespectful. You are an absolute disgrace of a publication.
