The less than environmentally friendly Greens

Peter Black has a nice little story on the Greens posting five identical leaflets to five members of the same household HERE, highlighting that when it comes to elections the Green's eco credentials disappear as quickly as they claim credit for things.

It reminds me of a Green rally held in Coventry when I was at university there in the 1990's. I remember they organised an event demanding that cars be taxed more heavily, that new road schemes be axed and that we move away from car use. What was the contradiction ? All the car parks around the university were full of the protesters cars with Green Party stickers in them. The fact that Coventry railway station was a five minute walk away meant nothing to these Green protesters. After all, your own car is much more convenient that the train, even for Greens !
