Sian Berry Selected As Green London Mayoral Candidate

Greens in London have selected female Principal Speaker and fellow Green Left supporter Sian Berry as Mayoral candidate.

The BBC report it here.

Sian has launched her campaign with an exposure of the lack of joined up green thinking behind the Tories' much-hyped conversion to the cause.

Here are the 'top ten Tory eco-cons' -

Top Ten Tory Eco-Cons
1 Support for nuclear power
2 Support for new roads
3 Support for aviation growth
4 Opposition to EU green schemes
5 Axing environmental regulations as "red tape"
6 Opposition to congestion charging
7 Support for incineration of waste
8 Support for tax cuts for super-consumers
9 Support for low taxes for the most polluting multinational businesses
10 Support for Trident over tackling climate change

Elsewhere, Green London Assembly member Jenny Jones comments on the Cameron-Brown tussle over who was greenest that erupted yesterday.
