A good friend came to stay a few days ago and we spent the evening discussing revolution; what, who, when, why and how.  A fairly wide ranging discussion that continued over breakfast and then prompted a lot of thinking during idle moments over the following days.

There has been quite a lot of interesting, and I think important, "environmental" news over the last couple of weeks. Most recently there was new UK Environment Secretary Michael Gove's opinion piece published on the government website hard on the heels of his announcements on neonicentoids and other matters. An environment minister taking action and setting policy based on evidence - surely something that the Green Party would have something to say about.

Been a while over the summer since I've written on here. Too much time spent with the natural to visit the virtual. Still someone send me a fragment of a discussion between a group of Green Party members which started on a proposed motion to conference but seems to have degenerated into some mutual misunderstanding of terms. So I thought I'd put fingers to keyboard and stir the soup.

I'd really like to say something about a possible political strategy for the Ecology Movement, and the Green Party as its political wing. But first I'd like to talk about an aspect of the breadth of the green (as opposed to ecology) movement and the relationship between its various parts - its internal ecology if you like.
