Greens vs Blues in Brighton

Two interesting political events in Brighton over the weekend: one, that we didn’t go to, David Cameron and the Conservatives, whose Spring Forum launched their election campaign, with more media than punters. Two, with more punters than media, and the one we did go to, Saturday night at the Theatre Royal - a comedy benefit, hosted by Marcus Brigstocke in aid of the Greens, whose MEP Caroline Lucas caroline lucas is contesting Brighton Pavilion. Star without a car Alistair McGowan’s best joke of the evening: “They say that a man’s car is linked to the size of his sexual organs.” “Me? I go everywhere by train.” More on Alistair‘s hate-hate relationship with the car, in this extract from my forthcoming book The Four Wheel Detox.
