Leader elections

Not all the candidates have announced yet (I know that there will be at least one more), but I am throwing myself behind Peter Cranie for leader and Caroline Allen for deputy.

Both have achieved significant electoral results in the past few year. Peter was just 0.3% short of being the North West's first Green MEP in 2009 and is lead candidate for the 2014 European election in that region. He has a great chance of getting elected as an MEP then. Caroline came third in the London Assembly constituency of North East, narrowly missing 2nd place by just 3%. She has worked with me on Policy Committee and been a superb support over the past year.
