Norman Baker gets it right

The BBC reports:

Environmental campaigners have come under fire from the Liberal Democrats for failing to make enough protests in the run up to the general election.

"Green groups have become too muted and the government has got away with more than it should have got away with," Lib Dem spokesman Norman Baker said.

There aren't many politicians who can attack and flatter pressure groups at the same time. I think this will play well with the Green movement, and the more we can do to wean single-issue activists away from an unthinking allegiance to Labour, the better.
