Posthumous Green Award

 In the dying days of New Labour, it seems only fitting to give this prestigious award to Karl Marx. What’s the connection between the two? That’s right – absolutely nothing! I make no claims for KM as an environmentalist, but our horribly imperfect world would be even more horribly imperfect if it hadn’t been for Marx and Engels. And if they were around for this election, they’d be looking at Green policies (public ownership of essential services, redistributive taxes etc) and reaching the only logical conclusion…..

    Hmm… that is really a stretch Ms Sweeny. But I will be raising a glass in honour of Karl Marx next week, the day before the election.

      Fair enough Andy. Just don’t try to tell me that Karl and Friedrich would be voting New Labour…..

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.
