Standing to be the leader of the Green Party of England and Wales at Green Party of England & Wales
And this blog thoroughly supports her candidacy. As should all true Worstallians.
No, not because she agrees with us on how the world should be made greener and more pleasant. She doesn’t, at all.
However, she is:
1) Intelligent. A rarity in politics.
2) Has actually done real work, had real jobs. Yes, copy editing is just that and a difficult one to do well.
3) A thoroughly good egg and Lord knows we need more of them around.
Of course, there’s always the possibility that support from this quarter will be the kiss of death to her hopes of getting the job: but to any Greens who do pass by and read this.
Natalie is competent.
I for one would miss the opportunity to take the piss out of whatever woo it is that the Green Party Leader is spouting this week, as I’ve been abe to indulge in for years now. But annoying me in that manner is indeed a good reason to vote for her, no?
