In 2010 #Brighton Pavilion made history by electing me UK’s 1st Green MP & it’s been the honour of my life. My open letter to residents & friends explains why I’m not standing at next General Election. With love & gratitude, I hope I've done you proud 👇
“We’re not sent to parliament to be concerned about our reputations on the gilded international circuit” - such dangerous disdain for international law from Robert Jenrick on
- I’m pretty sure most people *would* expect our government to stay within the law

Oh come on Labour - surely you can say that the foreign worker salary threshold should NOT be increased to £38K? Families risk being torn apart - why should only the wealthy be allowed to keep their families together?

appearance shows Govt Covid response was always someone else’s fault & never his own. His arrogance, complacency & failure to follow science proved his unsuitability to lead. We can't have another PM like him again

“We are a reasonable country, but…”
this is so sinister and dangerous
We live in a democracy not a dictatorship & have courts so that everyone *including the Government* has to keep to the laws passed by Parliament

What a truly terrible & deeply sad loss. Benjamin Zephaniah was such an inspiration to so many. He leaves a joyful, powerful, radical legacy. Rest in power and sincere condolences to his family and loved ones

Govt finally admits Russian meddling in our democratic processes. So why years of obfuscation about Intelligence Cttee
; why have I & other cross party MPs had to take Govt to court to try to force them to act; & why do we still not have proper protections in place?
[2023-12-07 14:02 UTC]
Over a year ago, former PM Boris Johnson - now a proven liar - told me he wasn't aware of any Russian interference in our elections. Now the Govt quietly admits that there was. So when will we have a full inquiry to ensure such attacks on our democracy never happen again?
[2023-12-07 15:31 UTC]
I was heckled & shouted down by Tory MPs at
last year for asking the former PM whether he was aware of any interference in UK elections. Now they're quiet - because we know there was. Why couldn't Johnson tell me so back then - & why are there still no protections in place?

Great! Just the person for the job of new Environment Minister - an unelected landowner who has restricted public nature access & backed bird culls. Someone I’d definitely trust to prioritise animal protection, nature access & environmental restoration...

RT by @CarolineLucas: This rhetoric was already out of date when I was growing up under the shadow of Enoch Powell's politics in Wolverhampton. The person out of tune with modern Britain is Suella Braverman.

Millions are breathing toxic, polluted air. Yet instead of following advice from their *own officials* & cleaning it up, Ministers are now set to scrap regulations under reckless Retained EU Law Act. Govt’s cavalier attitude towards clean air has to stop.
[2023-12-06 17:51 UTC]
What a farce. UK Govt proposes shameful legislation to degrade our democracy & disrespect legal judgment of highest domestic court in the land. And now Rwandan Govt warns it wants nothing to do with a deal if it trashes international law. Words piss up & brewery spring to mind.

RT by @CarolineLucas: Don't believe the narrative the Boris Johnson will try to push today at the inquiry that he "made the right calls" with covid.
He definitively did not:
- >230,000 UK citizens died
- Covid positive patients were sent back to care homes
[2023-12-06 09:38 UTC]
RT by @CarolineLucas: "The possibility of a Covid pandemic was not something that he really “broken upon the political world” or entered his consciousness as a potential disaster."
Sometimes, just sometimes, you have to be proactive rather than being reactive.
[2023-12-06 11:46 UTC]
RT by @CarolineLucas: As if he should have to be asked about it at PMQs for him to have taken covid seriously.
Always trying to blame someone else.
[2023-12-06 11:54 UTC]
RT by @CarolineLucas: Johnson has mentioned 'behavioural fatigue" fourt imes already this morning - the idea that the public would quickly tire of lockdown so we shouldn't impose it too soon.
I would argue that this is one of the most costly misunderstandings of the pandemic.
