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.
