60 days to the election, and the Brighton Politics Blogger will be maintaining radio silence for the next week

Just when it should be getting exciting, with just 60 days to polling day, I will be taking leave of absence from this blog as I will be out of the country for the next few days.

Just two thoughts to leave with you:

Today’s Independent on Sunday has a great review of 100 years of the women’s movement, with many of my particular favourites being quoted.  If it is not too late, pop out and get a copy.  Alternatively, you can read it here ‘100 women who changed the World‘. Of Caroline Lucas, they said: “As leader of the Green Party, who could become Britain’s first Green MP in this year’s general election, Lucas has given the party a mainstream image in the “Others” backwater of British politics. Formerly active in CND and Oxfam, she is also the vice-president of the RSPCA and the Stop the War Coalition.”

The second is the welcome launch of Green Amy Kennedy on Twitter. Please follow her @GreenAmyK.  She is proud to describe herself a “feminist, and a lover of music, food & architecture”.  And food is the subject of her latest tweet: “Roast dinner rocks. Top parsnip tip: freeze before roasting. Nom nom nom.” Thanks Delia Kennedy.
