Finally the Green Party have made the P&J headlines, calling for 22 members of a Highland Council committee to be sacked. No doubt Glenurquart Road trembles with fear today. Sorry the Gurn just can't take the local Green Party seriously. They had the chance to build up a proper 'sustainable' grass roots organisation when Eleanor Scott got into Holyrood but it just didn't seem to happen. The Green Party seemed to have as little to say about public concern about over-development in the A96 Inverness-Nairn corridor as all the other parties. They seem to have said nothing too about many issues dear to Nairnites, Sandown, Sainsbury's, the town centre etc. If they have then please let the Gurn know.
It would be nice to vote for an effective green party but really if they want support they will have to work harder for it. Down in the Brighton of the South it seems the Greens are the favourites to win the Parliamentary seat, they came second last time. In the Brighton of the North, looks like they blew it.
