It is left to the Green Party to represent the view of 64% of the British public when it comes to the war in Afghanistan


As Johann Hari writes today in the Independent, it is left to the Green Party to represent the view of 64% of the British public when it comes to the war  in Afghanistan. Last night’s debate between Clegg, Brown and Cameron concentrated on helicopter numbers and troop equipment and did not once address the underlying issues of the war nor the demand of the British public to end it and bring the troops home. Only the Green Party has had the moral courage to challenge this war, which continues to take lives and resources at a vast rate and which even President Karzai is now questioning the logic of.
