Just when I was about to advocate that a tactical vote in Brighton Pavilion should be a Green vote, the Greens disappear. Yes August is a quiet month, but not when you are a candidate in a key marginal seat. And let’s face it, the Greens have just one key target, Brighton Pavilion.
Labour’s Nancy Platts has been high profile and coinfident. Where has Caroline Lucas been? “Caroline who?”, you may well ask! While the European Parliament has been on its summer holidays, it would have been an ideal time for Caroline to be seen and get known in Brighton Pavilion. The only press reference I have seen regarding her is a statement from her to do with the latest climate camp in London.
The Greens, generally, since the Goldsmid by-election, when you couldn’t move for Greens, have gone deathly quiet (other than Jason Kitcat who has gone on and on about internal Green Party politics – hasn’t he learned from Labour’s mistakes?).
We have heard not a peep from the Greens. Has Alex Phillips left town? Are the Greens still serious about Brighton Pavilion. Has it all become too much for you?
Unless the Greens really get their act together, then this blog may yet call Brighton Pavilion for Nancy Platts and Labour.
