Greens promise good showing in by-election

Interesting that in the by-election in Norwich North this week, the Greens are for the first time in a contest of national importance being treated equally with the other three parties.

The Tories seem likely to unseat Labour from the constituency, as voters punish Labour's misdeads. But 2nd, 3rd and 4th places are fairly open. And as Greens already have lots of local councillors, an extremely effective local party, and a well-known candidate in Rupert Read, they are getting lots of good press and equal treatment with the others.
