BBC Blog: Will the Green Party ever be taken seriously? Of course!

This is quite interesting:
http://blog.bbcgreen.com/2008/09/29/will-the-green-party-ever-be-taken-seriously
Remember that once upon a time the Labour Party were a single-issue Party
(they were only 'for the workers'; they had 'nothing to say' about foreign
issues, about the land, about the family; etc.); and it took just one
generation for them to go from having no MPs to forming their first
government.
We are already taken very seriously in the Brussels Parliament, where I aim
to represent Eastern Region next year; for there, we are a major political
group.
And we are taken dead seriously in places like Norwich City Council, where
we will soon be the largest Party (if they don't abolish it...). When people
get the chance to vote for a Green Party that is going places, they go with
us.
Next stop (for the Party): Westminster!

Hello Rupert, I am so pleased you found our blog and posted your response. I am sure that you don't remember me but I believe you taught me Philosophy at UEA 10 years ago! I now work (mostly behind the scenes) on BBC Green. All the best.
