According to this article, Green Party of England and Wales leader Caroline Lucas believes that the Greens are poised to win a seat in Parliament. She is quoted saying that the Labour Party, led by Gordon Brown, is responsible for the nation’s economic and social difficulties.
“The government’s response to the current economic crisis is creating more inequality, not reducing it,” she said.
She also pointed to recent Green Party votes across Europe as proof that the Green Party’s message is resonating with voters across the continent.
“A million people who responded to our policies, our candidates and perhaps, above all, to our values,” she said.
“A million voices calling out for honesty in politics, for tackling the issues that really matter, like climate change and good quality public services.
“A million people who wanted fairness from a party they could trust. What a message for the other parties.”
