Caroline Lucas wins 2010 Ethical Politician of Year

Caroline Lucas, Green MP for Brighton Pavilion and Green Party leader has been named ‘Ethical Politician of the Year’ in the 5th annual Observer Ethical Awards.

Lucas beat David Cameron, and former climate secretary Ed Milliband, in picking up the award for the third time. Her previous two wins were in 2009 and 2007.

Caroline said, “I am delighted to have been chosen by readers of the Observer a third time – it means a great deal to be recognised by such a prestigious award. I am proud to represent a party in parliament which is committed to putting people and our planet first. I’d like to thank Observer readers who voted for me.

“At a time of economic upheaval and environmental challenge, the Greens’ positive vision for the future has never been more needed.”
