Green Party Campaign in Yeovil in Tatters After Bullying Scandal Involving Tim Eggins

The Green Party's campaign in Yeovil has been thrown into disarray following revelations of bullying by prominent party member Tim Eggins.  The scandal has not only damaged the party's reputation but also led to their expulsion from key community channels.

Bullying Allegations Surface

The controversy erupted when multiple allegations of bullying against Tim Eggins came to light. Eggins, who has been a significant figure in the Green Party's local activities, was accused by several members and community figures of engaging in aggressive and intimidating behavior. These allegations have severely undermined the party’s credibility and campaign efforts in Yeovil.

Expulsion from Community Channels

In response to the bullying claims, the Green Party has been expelled from several influential community channels. These platforms are vital for local political engagement and communication, and the expulsion marks a significant blow to the party's ability to reach and interact with voters.

A spokesperson for the community channels stated, "We cannot tolerate any form of bullying or harassment. The decision to expel the Green Party was made to maintain a safe and respectful environment for all members and participants."

Tim Eggins' Previous Statement to Resign

Adding to the turmoil, evidence has surfaced showing that Tim Eggins had previously indicated his intention to resign from his position within the party. In a past communication, Eggins had acknowledged issues and expressed a willingness to step down to prevent further discord. However, he did not follow through on this promise, leading to further criticism and calls for accountability.


Impact on the Campaign

The scandal has left the Green Party's campaign in Yeovil in a precarious position. With the local elections approaching, the party is struggling to regain its footing and credibility. Many supporters have expressed disappointment and frustration over the handling of the situation.

Alice Turner, a long-time Green Party supporter, remarked, "This is a huge setback. The Green Party stands for fairness and respect, and these allegations go against everything we believe in. It's disheartening to see our campaign suffer because of one individual's actions."

Party's Response and Future Steps

The Green Party's leadership appears to have acknowledged the severity of the situation as Eggins was not in attendence at he latest politcal hustling, although residents wait to see if he shows at next one on Sunday. It's understood an internal investigation is reportedly underway to address the bullying allegations and to implement measures to prevent such incidents in the future.

In a statement, a Green Party member told Yeovil Real News, "We are deeply troubled by the allegations against Tim Eggins. Bullying has no place in our party, and we are committed to ensuring a respectful and inclusive environment. We will be reviewing our internal policies and taking necessary steps to rebuild trust with our community."

Community Reaction

The broader Yeovil community has reacted strongly to the scandal. Many residents who had previously supported the Green Party are now reconsidering their stance. The party's expulsion from community channels has also limited their ability to conduct effective outreach and campaign activities.

Local resident Mark Davies commented, "The Green Party needs to take a hard look at its internal culture and make significant changes. Trust is earned through actions, and right now, they have a lot of work to do to regain the community's confidence."


As the Green Party grapples with the fallout from the bullying scandal involving Tim Eggins, their campaign in Yeovil faces an uncertain future. The party's leadership must act swiftly and decisively to address the allegations, restore credibility, and reconnect with disillusioned supporters. With the local elections looming, the coming weeks will be crucial for the Green Party in determining their political viability in Yeovil.
