David Cameron has just given the Green Party a lovely piece of free publicity.

Here is a letter I sent into the DAILY MAIL, on this:

Sir;

Melanie Phillips (‘Cameron’s real task’) thinks that the David Cameron’s ‘New Conservative’ Party is interested in attaching itself to the LibDems and the Greens because Mr. Cameron is quite a ‘centre-left’ Tory Leader. But the truth is that Cameron’s policy platform is a million miles away from being able to be taken seriously by us in the Green Party.

Here are ten top reasons why the Conservative policy programme is anathema to anyone who is actually remotely serious about being Green:

1 Support for anti-green nuclear power 2 Support for climate-dangerous new roads 3 Support for unchecked aviation growth

4 Opposition to EU green schemes 5 Axing environmental regulations as "red tape" 6 Opposition to congestion charging

7 Support for incineration of waste 8 Support for tax cuts for super-consumers

9 Support for low taxes for the most polluting multinational businesses 10 Support for Trident nuclear WMDs over tackling dangerous climate change.

When Cameron has changed these ten policies, THEN he can come back to us and talk about building a ‘progressive alliance’ with us. I won’t hold my breath!...

Faithfully, Cllr. Rupert Read, Green Party lead candidate for Eastern Region in 2009 Euro-elections
