Abstract:

Interview with Natalie Bennett, the leader of the Green Party, who argues that her party occupies the large political space that was vacated when New Labour shifted to the right. Labour continues to be too cautious on many issues. For example on education it has not come out against free schools, and its academies policy in many ways opened up the way for current Tory practice. Other areas discussed include Greens and austerity in Brighton, energy policy, globalisation, ethical consumerism, and electoral reform - including the Liberal Democrats' inability to persuade the Coalition government to deliver in this area
