I'm in Olton. Bit more Lib Dem here compared to the gold shoe brigade in other parts of Solihull. Always amazed how the Greens do so well in The Wood.

Liking trees and being NIMBYs is very popular in posh areas. The Greens oppose all developments generally so people vote for them to stop local developments.

Greens can appear left wing and anti austerity and attract working class votes in areas where the 3 main parties have attacked local services and cut spending and hit the poorest in society.

In reality Greens when in power (Brighton) have been just as vicious in cutting local services
