A few Saturdays ago we left the house for the town centre. As we walked up the street a group of eight nice-looking wouldn't hurt a fly young men were walking towards us. They walked up garden paths and gently posted whatever they were carrying through letterboxes. As we walked past one he smiled at us, a lovely, friendly, in love with life smile.
"I bet they're members of the Green Party," I said to Betty.
Later, when we got home, we discovered a leaflet urging us to vote Green.
Today at work we are talking about yesterday's elections.
"Did you vote?" I ask a younger colleague.
"I didn't vote but everybody I've spoken to, literally all my friends, everybody, voted for the Greens. I was speaking to Kerry this morning and she said her and Steve both voted Green too."
