The latest ICM poll puts the Green Party a full three points above the Lib Dems and into a clear fourth place ahead of next week's European elections.

This follows several weeks of a trend in which the Greens first reached parity with the Lib Dems and then started to ease ahead, climbing four points in just one week. It also comes as Labour experiences a massive 12 point decline. Among 18-24 year-olds the Greens are the now second most popular political party.

Bus visits the dreaming spires of Oxford

KiethandNatalieatLaunchinOxfordbyBus_20140510_250x333.jpgI spent Saturday in Oxford, one of the few buses that weren't full of tourists. At 0930, Natalie Bennett, Green Party leader, and Keith Taylor MEP launched the Oxfordshire Green Party manifesto for the Oxford City Council elections.

Greens out on the election trail, powered by reclaimed chip shop oil

Caroline Lucas MP, Cllr Alexandra Phillips & Keith Taylor MEP with the Green Party Bus

The south east region of England, the constituency created for European representation, is geographically huge, stretching from Milton Keynes in the North to the Isle of Wight in the South and Hampshire in the west to the easternmost tip of Kent. For candidates simply to get around the region and meet voters is a major challenge to all the political parties; the Greens' answer is the Green Party Bus, a traditional Routemaster London double-decker bus decked out in Green style and running not on diesel but on reclaimed cooking oil.
