Comically, I don’t think they say the word “London” once. And it drones on about issues which the mayor has no remit or power to address.

Mostly far-left waffle with hardly any “green” in it at all. They have been so effectively “entered”.

But, at least the video reflects the mental age of the average Green voter.

I’m still waiting to hear praise from the Greens heaped on George Osborne for his astounding achievement in maintaining such a low rate of GDP growth in Britain’s economy: UK narrowly avoids recession, says NIESR

Seems pretty green to me and it is constructing a vision that is highly attractive.

They will be getting my vote for sure

I’m not sure how popular they will be as they are well known for wanting to slap huge taxes on things such as 4x4s and cheap flights. People just won’t vote for a party that will make them pay more for things.

The kids were very good, and its a good idea to think about how adult decisions taken now will affect the lives of children in the decades to come. But it raises some interesting if minor ethical dilemmas: how were they recruited and paid?

    Other than a few of the kids being a little overly earnest, I really quite like this Green Party PPB http://t.co/xWFaKhLy
