Joanna Lumley backs green leader Caroline Lucas

May 22nd, 2009

The times newspaper reports that we have an endorsment for the Green party Leader, Caroline Lucas, from Joanna Lumley.

Shockingly our MP has welcomed the victory by Joanna in the Nuneaton News even but voted against her in the house of Commons. I can only guess why he puts his party before voting for what he claimes to support!

From the times:-

It is an endorsement likely to carry some considerable weight in these febrile times. The battle for Joanna Lumley’s political soul has been won by the Greens.

Fresh from her Gurkha victory over Gordon Brown, the actress has thrown her support in the European elections on June 4 behind Caroline Lucas, of the Green Party, who is one of the current MEPs for the South East region. Lumley said: “Caroline is a tireless campaigner in the European Parliament, staunchly defending human rights and strongly promoting greater protection for animals. I urge you to cast a positive vote for a better future by voting Green in the European Elections.”
