Last quote by Caroline Lucas

That was not on the ballot paper. Yes, there was a vote to leave, but it's not clear what that leave looks like in practice. We are the one party that is proud to stand up for the wonderful gift that is free movement – it is an extraordinarily precious gift to be able to work and to travel and to live and to love in 27 other member states. In particular, I think it is young people who are being betrayed by this Brexit vote. We know the majority of young people want to stay in the EU.feedback

Caroline Lucas quotes

The government is standing idly by while Britain chokes. This feeble plan won't go anywhere near far enough in tackling this public health emergency. We needed a huge investment in public transport, serious taxation changes and a new Clean Air Act – but none of these solutions are in the plan.feedback

It's frustrating and it's painful. You just feel that the people deserve better, and given the party's own history, Labour deserves better than the kind of shambles that's going on. The absence of real principle is desperately disappointing.feedback

It would be ludicrous to suggest people couldn't change their minds about which way to vote as facts change and experience becomes clearer. And in the same way, it gives them the right to revisit a referendum result, as long as the parties are clear about the options on the table. It certainly resonates on the doorsteps of Bristol and Brighton, where I've been spending most of my time. I think people feel that Labour has let them down, that they're in chaos.feedback

The trouble is, I don't even know what the top is any more, and whether that's Jeremy's office or the NEC. So it's being blocked, but who knows where? I think it's even more frustrating for Labour party members who are sending us as many strong messages as they know how to the various elements of the top to say: this is barking mad.feedback

Ukip's descent into the gutter of British politics is continuing. Their leadership and spokespeople have lurched even further to the right as the Tories do their Brexit work for them. The deep prejudice within this hollowed out party is being exposed – and the Green party will continue to challenge this bigotry every time it rears its ugly head.feedback

The Green party is being realistic about what’s needed to form a progressive government. Elsewhere local parties are stepping up, but leaders need to act. Last night something remarkable happened in Brighton. Local party members from the Liberal Democrats stood aside in Brighton Pavilion, and the Greens stood down in Brighton Kemptown. People who have spent years campaigning in these places took the decision to put aside party allegiances and work together so we have the best possible chance of delivering a fairer voting system and beating the Tories on 8 June. These choices were not easy, indeed they are acts of political bravery.feedback

Ukip's 'integration agenda' is an assault on multiculturalism and an attack on Muslims. It's full-throttled Islamophobia.feedback

While the Labour and Lib Dem leadership are lagging behind their own members and the general public on electoral alliances, it's great to see people taking things into their own hands.feedback

Britain is at a crossroads – and this election will dictate the very future of our country. Many of the public want us to join forces to help stop the Tories from further wrecking our country for generations to come and we hope you will be willing to at least take the first step and meet with us.feedback

Our call for a meeting between party leaders isn't about the Greens standing aside – it's about giving people in this country the best possible chance of defeating the Conservatives and bringing in a truly democratic voting system.feedback

The appalling state of some housing association homes is the result of years of deregulation and profit-seeking being prioritised over the building of decent homes. No one should have to live in these kind of conditions. Mould, flooding and rats might be relatively common in Londoners' homes, but that doesn't make their presence in any way acceptable.feedback

For young people in particular, let down by Brexit, the Green message is one of a more hopeful alternative.feedback

It's outrageous that the government has ploughed a million pounds of taxpayers' money into consultancy for a privatisation that simply shouldn't be happening in the first place.feedback

Clearly, there are questions to be answered about the Leave campaign's use of big data and a potentially huge 'in kind' donation by Cambridge Analytica. To have a foreign billionaire's fingerprints left all over such a seismic moment in British history is deeply concerning and requires urgent further investigation as to whether electoral law was broken.feedback

The vote they're offering - which will give MPs a choice between an extreme Brexit and falling off a cliff edge into WTO trade rules - isn't a concession, it's an ultimatum.feedback

MPs must not be duped by the government's attempt to quell unrest on their back benches.feedback

If we're serious about opposing an extreme Brexit then we can't just wave through Article 50.feedback

There's still a long way to go. Changing people's values and culture takes a long time. Sometimes you have to change the laws first if you can, and that's what we are doing now. And I think, you know, in a few years time people will look back to today and think what was all the fuzz about – that was quite extraordinary.feedback
