Caroline Lucas MP

former Leader of the Green Party

Laura speaks Caroline Lucas MP, former leader of the Green Party and MP for Brighton Pavilion. Caroline’s route into politics was in many was a coincidental one. They talk about her journey into politics and when she started to develop a passion for the environment. What’s also fascinating is how she has to operate in the House of Commons as the only MP in her party. It comes with all sorts of challenges. For starters, she does not have a whips office or other support in place that most MPs can count on.

Caroline was chosen for the Patchwork Foundation’s Judge’s Special Recognition Award.
