Like UKIP she's offering an alternative to the Westminster elite. People are fed up with professional politicians that have always got a clever clog answer to every question. Or so they'd like to believe.
Apparently Natalie had a mind blank. As many Greens do. Hasn't done Tony Abbot any harm and he didn't even have to leave Australia to become a hapless party leader.LBC @LBC 11m11 minutes ago
Natalie Bennett pulls out of LBC phone-in tonight, citing illness.
Farage and Salmond both stepped down but were called backnew puritan wrote: Lucas on the other hand is a pretty solid media performer. I don't know why Lucas stepped down in the first place but today there must be a lot of Greens wishing she hadn't.
The ability to think on your feet in a tight corner is what differentiates a front line politician from the rest of us political anoraks. But yes I like Natalie Bennett on a personal level and I didn't feel the schadenfreude that I did with Cameron flailing with Pink News when asked why his party is in coalition with homophobic nutjobs in the EP. You never know it might be the making of her, its certainly put her on the map. There's always the Boris option when you frequently can't answer a question; bluster out some noises, make an unfunny joke and say something in Latin. Just think what a 'character' Natalie could become.Kreuzberger wrote: I had to cut it after about 1:40. I just felt really sorry for her and I genuinely hope that she can find a role where she can't do herself any more harm.
I know that we're straying into conspiracy theory territory here, but there is speculation that she's an MI6 plant.new puritan wrote:Worth noting as well that Green Party membership was much smaller that it appears to be now when Bennett was first elected. Post-election leadership contest is surely nailed on.
Still, could be worse - they could have elected Pippa Bartolotti...
