Comment - Miscellaneous
Outside View by Neal Lawson, chairman of Compass
The Greens are a sunny delight. Brimming with hope,
ideas and democracy, they have answers to the problems of the poor
getting poorer and the planet burning - but they have absolutely no
strategy for doing anything about it. They have won in one place -
Brighton - the only four-way marginal on the planet they love so
much. But the planet's temperature is rising faster than Green Party
representation in the political system. I know it's the voting system.
But please, my Green friends, stop doing the same thing while
expecting a different outcome. You're not idiots after all.
That's a little harsh, Neal, but watch this space. We do have a new
strategy - we're just not telling YOU what it is yet.
