We have been here before. As the BBC News website reported, from early on the Green Party in England and Wales had one male and one female principal speaker, rather than a single leader. That changed as recently as 2008, when Caroline Lucas took charge. So rather than being "the first ever" job-share (Daily Telegraph), the party is merely reverting to an earlier principle. The Telegraph is not the only organ to take the Green media release at face value - even the journos at the BBC have short memories.
