    The Greens could make history

    If the Green Party manages to win in Brighton Pavillion, they would indeed be making history, Britain would have our first ever Green Party MP. This article from the Independent:

    "You want to renationalise the railways," says the householder. "That's right, it's a key measure," says Mr Taylor. When a woman walking past spots his big lime-coloured lapel rosette and, without breaking stride, shouts: "I'll be voting Green!" We all turn. I call out: "Why?" and catch up with her. She gives her name as Liz Smith, she's 45, works in broadcasting and has been a life-long Labour voter. She says, rapidly and with real vitriol: "I'm switching because I'm sick of Labour. I hate what they're doing in Iraq and I'm absolutely sick to death of the spin. I don't believe a word Tony Blair says any more." Then she hurries off.
