Not just a green party but a green party of government

It's been a great month for Liberal Democrats who are setting the pace on the green agenda!

I was this party's first environment spokesman over twenty years ago. It makes me proud to see what so many of us campaigned for all those years ago being made a reality now we're in government. This is a key part of what we Liberal Democrats bring to the coalition, and none of this would have happened without us. As Nick said yesterday, 'the LibDems have long been the greenest of the main three parties - the difference now is that it is not just a green party but a green party of government'.
