In conversations locally several people have asked about Caroline Lucas as the Greens first MP....well The Independent have just done a piece "Caroline Lucas: 'You can do politics without selling out'. Her election as an MP is a triumph for the green movement. But how will Caroline Lucas make a difference? She talks to Sophie Morris about turning ecological ideals into reality." Worth a look - See here. Also good was their coverage of Caroline's first speech in Parliament..."History doesn't always come in thunderclaps or cheering crowds, and yesterday it was made with very little outward fuss when a woman in a pale blue trouser suit got to her feet from a green leather bench and began to speak." See here.
