In my usual customary style, I’m late catching up with the news and I’m even later in getting round to blogging about it. Not that I have loads to say but I will mention the news that the Green party recently voted, overwhelmingly, to change it’s (ahem) principle of having two Principal Speakers and is going to have a single party leader like the rest of the political parties.
Myself, I always supported the fact that they rejected the policy of hierarchy – of having a traditional party leader who enjoys a high level of power within the party. I liked the fact that they elected a male and a female Principal Speaker in an abidance with the “cooperative” ethos of joint and shared responsibility.
But they have chosen to adopt the same structure as the other political parties and I can only hope it makes them stronger and that they remain individually unique.
