Green Party leadership up for grabs.

So Caroline Lucas is to stand down as leader of the Green Party. Apparently this is all about letting other top Greens have a go at leadership and who am I to doubt this. Leaders are  still something of a novelty in the Green Party so it stands to reason that lots of members, keen to spend less time with their families, will  fancy giving it a try. All very laudable and democratic but some more cynical political observers, unused to such altruism, will be sniffing around the undergrowth in search of scandal. What could be the guilty secret that has forced Caroline to step down before the organic matter hits the wind turbine?  Does the Brighton MP drive a Hummer or perhaps host wild parties where the guests sit naked under patio heaters eating tropical fruits torn from the mouths of starving children and flown half way round the world at vast expense? Just asking.

Sir. Caroline Lucas walks on water. I have seriously considered moving to Brighton just to have her as my MP.

Her years in Oxford may have some interest for the tittle tattle press. Like the last poster I'm on her side, my only complaint is the ability all greens demonstrate in ignoring the raging class war that uk politics has become.
Westminster has emasculated her somewhat.Great company over a pint or two!

I don't think "emasculated" is the correct term to use when talking about a socialist feminist, comrade.
