Yes, the Greens have got their first UK parliamentary seat . Congratulations to Caroline Lucas in Brighton. And with the current hung parliament, it might even do some good. I wonder how well the GP would stand up to real politics?
More later when the results come in.
Oh yes: as a token gesture towards the real world: shame abuot the Lib Dems. Which caused me to look up South Cambs. This is usually a shoo-in for Lansley. And it was this time too, except that the Lib Dems were very clearly second and Labour nowhere. Maybe some hope for next time.
Incidentally, do you realise I’m not the only blog called Stoat? Maybe I’ll start a collection.
