    Is this debate before Corbyn wins the Labour leadership vote and she switches from the Green Party?

    It is very difficult to see any difference at all between Corbyn’s policies and those of the far-left of the Greens.

    Will this mark the start of the Green Party actually worrying about the environment again?

      Heavens no – I can’t think of anything worse to attend – other than Russell Brand’s forthcoming show in Worthing!
