_Newsnight_ local election special -- Green Party on the up!
Theres a great sequence from Michael Crick on last night's Newsnight:
It starts with them saying there's apparently sign of the election in Reading;
then they find the Tories, who meet an ex-Tory voter who doesn't like Cameron, because he's too privileged;
then they go around with Labour, who talks to somone who won't vote for them, they try to argue for local issues but the bloke wants to use his vote to give 'Brown a kicking';
then they go round with the Lib Dems, who try to persuade somone to vote for him -- she says No: 'I'm making a statement and voting Green'. (The LibDem admits in his 'pitch' speech that the Green Party may well break through onto Reading Council, tomorrow.)
They said the only posters they could find were ours, Vote Green Party!
