Media taken in by Green Party hype
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.
