As for the Nigel Farage protest last night, I have some correspondence on it.

“Golriz Ghahraman is an idiot and a disgrace”, that is the opening line.

"She ignores Green Party values, what a disgrace to the environmental movement.” Well that movement is a disgrace in the first place, I don't know why you would bother about it.

But part of the Green Party policy is to engage respectfully with out personally attacks.

So here is what Ms Golriz had to say on Facebook.

"Today's the day to tell Nigel Farage he's full of sh*t! I'll be speaking to tell him we stand united against his brand outdated dangerous drivel. Profiting from hate and division ain't welcome here."

And then there is a poster, "Nigel Farage if full of sh*t, protest the politics of the racist right."

These people don’t deserve a great deal of attention. Ms Golriz is as far as I am concerned a waste of space, and so are a few of her fellow travellers.
