It's not easy being green
It seems you blend in with so many other ordinary things
And people tend to pass you over
'Cause you're not standing out
Kermit the Frog
It's Not Easy Being Green
With both Gordon Brown and David Cameron chasing the green vote maybe they should take lessons from Kermit and Dick Strawbridge and Family.
Mr Cameron had to do a lot more than merely get on his bike and visit the Norwegian Glaciers. So far the only new 'environmental' policy to come out since he took over the Torys is the free up legislation on building on Green Belt land. How this counts for being green is beside me.
However, it's all very well talking the talk and while I don't expect everyone to follow the Strawbridges to the full extent that they have gone each of us can take measures to do so. This is something that the Liberal Democrats have been encouraging for a long time and the Gordon and David come latelys of this world must bear this is mind as people are liable to pass over them if they only pay lip service and not deliver any action.
