I’ve just got back from the Green Party conference in London. There’s been some good coverage of Caroline’s election, and I don’t think we could have chosen a more capable or inspirational leader. Have a look at her speech here.
I was particularly pleased that the motion on the “right to rent” got through. The Greens’ new policy states that any house owner who could not pay their mortgage and is threatened with repossession would have the right to sell to the council and then continue to live in the property and pay rent. With so many people in Sheffield hit by the credit crunch this is a realistic solution.
The Greens now have a new home to bring together Green Bloggers. You can find it at http://greenpartyblogs.org.uk
