The new politics needs a realignment of the mind. It needs Caroline Lucas | David Marquand | Comment is free | The Guardian .

As David Marquand writes:

No single thinker, party or school of thought offers a complete answer, or anything like it [to the current crisis]. Answers will have to be hammered out in open-minded dialogue, between all those who accept that tinkering is not enough, across the lines of party and creed. The need, in fact, is for a realignment of the mind, socialist in economics and republican in politics. In such a realignment the Green movement must surely have a central place, along with radicals and dissenters from all parties and none. Caroline Lucas, over to you.

Cue, the Green New Deal.

Caroline Lucas MP, leader of the UK Green Party, is a colleague of mine in the Green New Deal group.
