You're basically right though, whilst each party has some kind of stance on just about all the issues (labour will have a stance on the environment, Green Party will have one on taxes) individual party's will put more emphasis on certain things and priorities won't be the same. Frankly, the priorities of party's like Labour or Conservatives greatly resemble that of the majority of the UK which is why they get the majority vote.

There's also the whole marketting thing, if the Greeen Party had enough funding come election time, they'd be able to get their voice heard more by people who don't bother with reading manifests or looking into the parties and just go along with the crowd.
