Kent MEP to lead the Green Party

At 8pm at the Green Party Conference at SOAS, Caroline was elected the first leader of the Green Party. The ballot was unequivocal with Caroline getting 90% of the vote.

I was in the audience and watched the announcement happen (history in making???). Certainly Caroline has an excellent chance of being the first Green MP at the next general election.

Just listening to Caroline on Radio 4 and it is great to hear her talk about the need for a windfall tax on energy companies to support people who are struggling and to hear her talk of the current 'Victorian levels of inequality' that needs to be tackled.

Also great to watch was the discussion with Ken Livingstone, clearly a nice guy but he hasn't got his head around Green politics!
