Caroline Lucas: Forget the BNP. What about the planet?

In today's Independent on Sunday, Green Party leader Caroline Lucas claims the real story of the EU election earlier this month, was the nationwide rise of the Green Party.

She rightly observes that most media attention has been focused on either the BNP winning its first seats at Brussels, or the demise of Labour. Neither of which, the local re-elected MEP says, offers us as much hope as the nationwide rise in the Green Party's support.

She's spot on: those in Moulsecoomb, Whitehawk, Kemp Town, Rottingdean, Telscombe, Peacehaven and all points in between have their best ever chance to elect a Green MP and ensure both a strong Green voice at Westminster and Brighton Kemptown's place in the history books.
