The good news that Norwich has been voted the "greenest place in Britain" has been rather soured in my mind by the fact that BBC Radio Norfolk allowed to Green Party time this morning to officially take the credit for it.
Read about Norwich's success HERE.
Clearly the BBC interviewer knew less about the poll than he was letting on and allowed the Green Party spokesman to take full credit for the success. He even allowed the Green to claim it was because of the Green Party's success in elections that Norwich had won. The BBC Radio Norfolk interviewer failed to point out that those place that came second and third, Peterborough and Tunbridge Wells have little or no Green Party activity or success. If Green Party success was such a key factor, why wasn't Brighton and Hove as high on the list, an area with more Green success than they have in Norwich.
I'm surprised whilst the Greens were at it they didn't claim the credit for motherhood and apple pie !
If the BBC radio interviewer was really clued up he would have pointed out that the Greens have not been in power in Norwich and would have had more political balance in the interview.
Typical Greens, claim credit for every success and deny any involvement with anything else.
