This was the headline in todays Kent on Sunday. It's a shame really as it looks like they will end up with someone from their 'A List' rather than someone local. Who ever they select will fall down on their attitude to the environment - the Tory stance on the environment beggars belief (as does that of the LibDems and Labour).
They all try to suggest that continuous economic growth is reconcilable with the needs of the environment where as all the evidence says otherwise. We need economic development which will involve growth in some areas (greener industries) and reductions in others (polluting ones).
I'm looking forward to the debates and hustings!
