My response to Caroline Lucas’ arrest in Balcombe on Radio Wales

Radio Wales rang me looking for a local Green Party response to Caroline Lucas’ arrest in Balcombe yesterday and I was happy to oblige.

Had a good 5 minute + conversation with Jason Mohammad at lunchtime.

Catch it here (for the next 7 days): http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b038rvbx at the 2:08:00 mark.

I made it clear that the Party is fully behind her (http://greenparty.org.uk/news/green-party-leader-backs-green-mp-over-arrest-at-peaceful-fracking-protest.html) and that the costs of policing the protests down there pale into insignificance compared to the costs of letting it go ahead.

I also made it clear that the fractivist community is here for the long haul – as long as it takes for the right (correct) and the just to prevail.
