    I really admire Caroline Lucas and think she would make a fantastic MP for Brighton Pavilion. The Greens have always had my vote anyway but this has certainly strengthened that, especially in regard to opposition to faith schools, and I will certainly be voting for her party tomorrow.

  2. There is only one progressive vote and that is Green.

    I do like Caroline Lucas but the indications are that voting for her in Brighton Pavilion will lead to a Conservative victory for that constituency.

    I would ask that people vote Labour in Brighton Pavilion to prevent Conservative victory.

    Personally I would love to see PR in the UK so people could vote according to their conscience easily but we do not have it yet and if there is a Conservative majority in Westminster on 7th May there will be no PR for a very long time.

  4. It is funny how Liberal Democrat hypocrites expect others to swallow their principles and vote tactically for feckless idiots like the Liberal Democrats; but almost always dismiss any suggestion that they vote tactically for another where the Liberal Democrats have no chance of winning.

    Caroline Lucas has been a consistent supporter of the International Day against Homophobia (IDAHO) since the start of this campaign in 2005. She speaks up in favour of LGBT Rights around the world, and really knows what she’s talking about. We need people like that in the House of Commons.

  6. Good Luck, Caroline! Greens around the world will be hoping that you break through into the House of Commons!

    I wish them Luck, they do deserve it. A good sign of a good leader is personal passion in the job she is doing.

  8. I do want to see the Greens do well and increase their vote; they are progressive and pro-equality. My only worry is that they would make it hard on me as a car-owner. I need my car for work and because I have a small child. I’d happily join in any shcmem to get more environmentally friendly cars on the streets, but this issue would be a worry for me.

  9. More than 6 months after the election. What has she said or done in Parliament for LGBT rights/equality?


  10. Lies, lies, lies As trustworthy as the LibDems.
