Great news that Jenny Jones has been appointed to the House of Lords.
The Green Party opposed the concept of an appointed upper chamber in Parliament but while the system exists and given the failure of the other parties we need to increasing our voice wherever we can.
Unlike parties who put appointees forward based on the amount of money they have paid, the Greens held an open and transparent internal election to select who we would put forward if asked. Jenny came top of the list.
Jenny has made a huge impact on the London Assembly and will make an even bigger impact in the Upper Chamber.
