The Green MP for Brighton Pavilion has welcomed Jeremy Corbyn’s victory in the Labour leadership contest.
Caroline Lucas said: “Jeremy’s success in this contest is a real boost for progressive politics.
“For the first time in my memory Labour will be led by someone who stands up for the radical changes demanded by the challenges we face.
“I am looking forward to working with Jeremy to provide a concerted and strong opposition to this government and to push for the constitutional changes, like reform of our voting system, that Britain’s multi-party, devolved political system demands.
“I will also be urging him to join me in championing urgent action on climate change and building an economy that works for our children and grandchildren – two of the greatest challenges we face.”
