Lib Dem parliamentary candidate for Maidstone

According to the Kent Messenger yesterday, the Lib Dems have selected a candidate for the Maidstone and the Weald constituency - a boss of a haulage company, Peter Carroll. Not sure what it says for their alleged green credentials, why would they put a campaigner for the road lobby forward.

So the current line up:

Lib Dem: Peter Carroll, a haulage company boss and road lobby campaigner who has campaigned to get the fuel duty cut.
Tories: Helen Grant, a solicitor who couldn't make up her mind whether she is Labour or Conservative
Labour: Rav Seethrum, a GP who supports New Labour's approach to health care.
Green Party: Stuart Jeffery, me!

We need to move rapidly away from our dependence on cars and long distance transportation of goods if we are to limit our carbon emissions. Campaigning for more roads and cheaper diesel is not green.
