In fairness, I'd still put Bennett to the left of Labour. She probably isn't as left wing as Peter Cranie, though, and is probably closer to the image of the stereotypical Green than he is. We'll just have to see how it goes I guess. It's going to be difficult to make serious headway over the next couple of years, though, as the anti-government vote coalesces around Labour. Holding on to Brighton Pavilion is going to be very tough, and I suspect that's one of the main reasons Caroline Lucas has stepped aside as leader.
Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle.
