    Caroline Lucas, sensible suggestion or sexist nonsense?

    Sexist if you ask me, imagine if it had been a male leader calling for the same thing in reverse.

      She has gone completely down in my estimation, she would rather team up with a bunch of austerity backing, lib dem frackers than support a Labour party with genuinely positive policies for the environment. I will no longer be voting for her.

      Funnily enough a few days back on the Brexit thread I speculated that CL might be a long shot as the Leader of a govt of national unity. However, quite why she has boxed herself in in this way is rather odd and to me her proposition is contrived and unconvincing.

      Sexist. We should be working together, not creating division.

      I'm a member of the Green Party, but comments like this will hinder the chances of Greens ever having a realistic shot at making a real dent in British politics

      I love the bit about reaching out to people with whom they disagree and co-operating to find solutions. Her proposal is to do the exact opposite. Blairite spin at its finest.

      How can it be sexist? The leaders she's calling out for are the leaders of the left leaning parties and left leaning independants . . . who are all female.

      The LWAlliance have already made huge grounds to try to win any impending general election so I say left her get on with it to save the country.

      Because she herself claims that women have the ability to solve the political impasse purely on the basis of their gender. Read her quote in the article and substitute ‘black’, ‘white’, ‘straight’ or ‘gay’. This type of division is the last thing we need.

      Considering Theresa May is a woman, and didn't make any progress in three years, I fail to see how Caroline Lucas justifies it.

      NSC at its very best ~ a post based on assumption on a matter the poster hasn't got a clue about!!
      When people are rude to you, they reveal who they are, not who you are.
