Green Party Manifesto

Today sees the launch of the Green Party manifesto for 2005.

Aside from the obvious environmental concerns they diverge from the current government in foriegn policy and in Education policy, notably planning to scrap tution fees.
Scrap tuition fees and restore maintenance grants:

The Green Party will replace student loans with maintenance grants to ensure students have a decent standard of living. They will not be charged tuition fees. The grants systems will subsequently be integrated into our proposals for a Citizen’s Income scheme, which will provide for basic living expenses and additional costs, such as books.

I think we need more Greens in the Commons.
