Emma Bateman – Expelled Again!

I have been expelled for a third time by the Green Party gender zealots in GPRC. I know there are women hating lurkers who will be cheering at the news that I am out again, but i hope they understand that my lawyer will be cheering even louder as the party keeps handing over chunks of evidence that they are harassing and victimising me because of my gender critical views.

If anyone here is unaware, I was expelled in January 2023, I appealed  in March 2023,  the complaint was sent back to disciplinary committee and heard in May 2023  , i was expelled again, appealed again in July 2023, the complaint was sent back to the disputes complaints referral group and was found to be unreasonable , which would normally mean it should be dismissed according to GPEW guidance , but (uniquely) it wasn’t dismissed, so a new appeals committee strung out making a decision until November when the expulsion was overturned and my membership was reinstated.

Now the extremists who are running the party have overturned that again and expelled me again. I have not been told why other than it has been decided that the appeal  process was not done properly. Appeals decisions are meant to be final, but GPRC have stuck in a new clause to make sure that an appeal will just be heard over and over again until the GPRC  extremists get the decision they want.

Given that it took 13 weeks of their pissing about to make the last decision, the gender zealots will either string it out for another 3 months as a punishment , or they have already decided to expel me again permanently.

So for the same complaint , I have had 2 complaint hearings, 2 appeal hearings, + a re-examination by a different appeals committee, a separate consideration by DCRG,  legal advice from party lawyers and now another appeals committee is going to re examine it  all over again.
This is the process is the punishment.
This is what will come out in court, and the party WILL lose.

Take Action!

So many of you have already emailed us or spoken out on social media in abject shock and horror in response to the stories you heard during our webinar. Until now, the complaints process has been masked by a veil of secrecy. That means very few members have been able to truly understand the extent of our broken systems and how they are being weaponised to silence Gender Critical voices.

Many of you have also asked how you can help to further our aims to support women speaking out and advocate for women’s issues to be protected in the party.  Here are six ideas:

  1. SPEAK to someone in your local party – many members have no idea about the corruption in the party by the Gender Identity factions. Start small.
  2. Share the Webinar video and this information sheet with friends and colleagues, or on social media. Sunlight is the best disinfectant and we need to shine a light on the corruption and broken processes within the party so we can put a stop to it.
  3. WRITE to your Regional Council member –  see contacts below. Ask them about the consequences of the multiple court cases for discrimination, the real potential of bankruptcy, and the ultimate collapse of the entire Green Party.
  4. Help us build a body of evidence demonstrating harm to the party. We know that people often make public statements on Social Media when they leave the party over this issue, will you help us collect those statements by forwarding them to evidence@greenwomensdeclaration.uk We want to demonstrate that the leadership’s continued silence on this issue only perpetuates harm to the party and to our hardworking members and campaigners.
  5. STAND for a Governance Position – we need sensible Green people in the room to counter extremist ideologues and help to put our party back on track. Multiple positions are available either on an annual or rolling basis. Green Party Executive – (GPEx – Next election Jul 2024), Green Party Regional Council (GPRC – Next election rolling normally 2 years), Disciplinary Committee  (DC – next election rolling dependent upon vacancies), Standing Order Committee (SOC – Next election Oct 2024) Drop us a line and let us know if you are interested in standing at a national level, if you’re curious one of our team can give you more information about what’s involved.
  6. VOLUNTEER to support our campaign. Drop us a line at info@greenwomensdeclaration.uk to let us know you want to help. We’d love to hear from you.
