Down with the Kids

The infamous NUT debate took place on Thursday. I’ve been assured by several sources that I didn’t miss much, though the NUT’s intransigence in refusing to include the Green Party still rankles. Unfortunately Charlie, who was due to represent us, was ill and unable to attend. Still, Mark and I spent an hour standing outside the hall handing out leaflets explaining the situation and the main points from our education policy (see above). These went down well, particularly with the smattering of young people there. Several of them approached me to ask about specific issues, and made it clear that they sympathised with us. The school made us very welcome in the form of tea, biscuits and an invitation to come back for a separate Q & A session. So as undemocratic exclusion experiences go, it wasn’t the worst!

How cold is my valley?

Who I am

This blog started during the months before the 2010 General Election, in which I was the Green candidate for Calder Valley. It's morphed into an account of green activism...and other meanderings.
