|Cllr Jason Kitkat tells the story of the Brighton Green Budget|
It was also good to meet up with Cllr Alan Weeks of Hampshire and his Lorella who are actively revitalising Hampshire Greens showing them the ‘ways of the force’ in fighting elections. We had a happy evening with Cllr Tom Harris drinking beer from an organic brewery based in Liverpool. Local production for local needs at its best.
I made a number of interventions on the Conference floor. I supported the Young Greens in their quest for a seat on the Green Party National Executive and they achieved the necessary 2/3rds majority to change the constitution. I supported the Green Councillors from Brighton who had just got through their first budget but only after the Conservatives joined with Labour to reduce spending by bringing savings forward from year 2 of their budget. Much of the Conference focussed on the Coalition cuts , their impact and what we could do to minimise the damage they are doing to individuals and communities.
Anyway here's the trailer for 'Iron Sky'
