The UK Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, yesterday set a May 6th date for the General Election. Expect to see a lot more coverage of the respective party campaigns here at Greenopolis. For now, here are five election-themed links.
The Independent – on where the three main parties stand on the environment.
Guardian Environment Network – asks if we are set for the first UK Green Election.
Greenpeace UK – encourages the electorate to ask where candidates stand on climate change.
Telegraph – Geoffrey Lean on the climate consensus between Labour, Conservatives and LibDems.
New Media Age – on how the plethora of online election coverage will attract first-time voters to engage with the political process. We’ve heard all about the ‘grey’ vote in recent years so perhaps now the younger ‘green’ vote will receive some attention.
