Last quote by Caroline Lucas

The shameless cosy relationship between the Department for International Trade and the arms industry is deeply concerning. Britain already has an appalling record of shipping weapons to dodgy dictators and repressive regimes across the world, and we risk seeing the government using Brexit to further deepen our country's relationship with these weapons merchants.feedback

This page is completely dedicated to what Caroline Lucas has to say. All of Caroline Lucas’s quotes are organized here by date and topic. The most recent quote attributed to Caroline Lucas came from an article called Adele's eco warrior husband hits out at South Downs wind farm 'scars': “Like any major project there has been some disturbance, and I definitely believe the scar on the Downs should be re-turfed as soon as possible. But let's not throw the baby out with the bathwater here by buying into the idea that offshore wind is anything but a technology that's working effectively, and set to become the backbone of British energy. The real threats to the South Downs are drilling of oil and gas - and to focus attacks on clean energy really does miss the mark.”.

Jun 29 2017 - Coca-Cola

Global plastic bottle use is spiralling out of control. The environmental consequences of a million plastic bottles being used every minute are absolutely devastating.feedback

Jun 29 2017 - Coca-Cola

As consumers we can all make choices which limit our plastic bottle use, but the key to solving this crisis is action from governments. That's why I'm calling for a bottle deposit scheme to be implemented urgently. Currently Britain uses 38.5m plastic bottles every day – and we should be leading the world in reusing bottles and rapidly reducing our plastic waste.feedback

Jun 28 2017 - Brexit

If we're going to protect our oceans and our countryside we need to end the age of single-use plastics. It's time for government, working alongside industry – and drinks companies in particular – to take drastic action.feedback

Jun 12 2017 - Climate change

This appointment is further evidence of both Theresa May's complete disregard for the environment and her desperation to hold together a government in chaos.feedback

Jun 12 2017 - Brexit

As we enter Brexit negotiations, Gove's past suggestion we scrap vital EU environmental protections becomes ever more concerning.feedback

Jun 10 2017

The election has shown that we needn’t be locked into two-party politics. In interviews leading up to 8 June, my co-leader, Jonathan Bartley, and I were frequently asked the question: “Why has the progressive alliance failed?” I want to take five minutes to explain why I think the election result shows both the power and potential of the progressive alliance.feedback

May 31 2017 - Saudi Arabia

The first rule of leadership is show up. You don't call a general election saying it's the most important in her lifetime and then not even bother to show up.feedback

May 22 2017 - Single market

That was not on the ballot paper. Yes, there was a vote to leave, but it's not clear what that leave looks like in practice. We are the one party that is proud to stand up for the wonderful gift that is free movement – it is an extraordinarily precious gift to be able to work and to travel and to live and to love in 27 other member states. In particular, I think it is young people who are being betrayed by this Brexit vote. We know the majority of young people want to stay in the EU.feedback

May 22 2017 - Brexit

It means giving people a proper say on the Brexit deal, not shutting them out of the process. And it means exploring changes to our economy to make it fairer and fit for the future.feedback

May 22 2017 - Brexit

One of the biggest ways we are letting down our young people is on the environment. The last year was the hottest year on record. I feel so let down by the fact that Labour has not been a rigorous opposition when it comes to Brexit. Essentially, they have allowed the government to have a blank cheque on a hard Brexit.feedback

May 22 2017 - Single market

The Green Guarantee is about hope, and we need hope now like never before. I can't remember a time in my life where the future has felt more uncertain, with Brexit, with accelerated climate change, with an NHS in crisis. Let us make no mistake – she has no mandate for the kind of Brexit she is pursuing, out of the single market, out of the customs union, leaving environmental protections behind, ending free movement.feedback

May 10 2017

I don't know of the name of the person – I know of the incident you're talking about. But it happened after the decision had already been taken to stand down, and the money was not accepted. So any kind of implication that we were standing down for money is absolutely wrong, categorically wrong.feedback

May 08 2017 - Labour Party

We've still got a few more days where we could build on these alliances, which it isn't just the Green party asking for them, it is people up and down the country begging parties of the left and the centre-left to get together to do grown-up politics and to be able to put in place a group of people who have a better chance of serving the interests of the people rather than allowing a massive Tory landslide, which is what we are on course to see.feedback

May 08 2017 - Clean energy

After two years of campaigning, I'm glad that more and more politicians from across the political spectrum are now recognising the huge financial risks associated with fossil fuel investments. We should be investing in the clean, renewable energy that we have in abundance, and leading the way in socially responsible investment.feedback

May 08 2017 - Labour Party

It is right that people on the left and centre left are talking together to see if in a handful of marginal constituencies they might be able to come to some arrangements to try to make sure that the person best able to beat the Tories and get back into parliament, and crucially to push for a change to our electoral system, to see if that could be possible. The Greens have already stood down unilaterally for the Labour party in places like Ealing Central and Acton, in places like Brighton Kemptown, in other place too.feedback

May 08 2017 - Labour Party

If Labour and Lib Dems came together with us we would have a chance at least of getting rid of a Tory and replacing it with a candidate who will fight for this change to the electoral system. For this to happen we need Jeremy Corbyn to get around a table with us, and I think what is so disappointing is that he talks about doing politics differently and yet he is betraying the mass of the people that he says he represents by allowing them to be hit hardest by a massive Tory majority.feedback

May 08 2017 - Labour Party

Over a million people voted Green in 2015, that could have led to 24 Green MPs. People don't want in marginal constituencies parties on the left and the centre left to spend all of their time fighting each other and for the Conservatives to come through the middle.feedback

May 08 2017 - Brexit

What we ought to be doing is saying: how do we stop the Tories getting the kind of landslide that will allow them to impose not just an extreme Brexit but extreme social policies, long-term damage to our health, education and so forth.feedback

May 05 2017 - Air Pollution

The government is standing idly by while Britain chokes. This feeble plan won't go anywhere near far enough in tackling this public health emergency. We needed a huge investment in public transport, serious taxation changes and a new Clean Air Act – but none of these solutions are in the plan.feedback

May 02 2017

It's frustrating and it's painful. You just feel that the people deserve better, and given the party's own history, Labour deserves better than the kind of shambles that's going on. The absence of real principle is desperately disappointing.feedback

May 02 2017

It would be ludicrous to suggest people couldn't change their minds about which way to vote as facts change and experience becomes clearer. And in the same way, it gives them the right to revisit a referendum result, as long as the parties are clear about the options on the table. It certainly resonates on the doorsteps of Bristol and Brighton, where I've been spending most of my time. I think people feel that Labour has let them down, that they're in chaos.feedback

May 02 2017 - Labour Party

The trouble is, I don't even know what the top is any more, and whether that's Jeremy's office or the NEC. So it's being blocked, but who knows where? I think it's even more frustrating for Labour party members who are sending us as many strong messages as they know how to the various elements of the top to say: this is barking mad.feedback

Apr 29 2017 - Islamophobia

Ukip's descent into the gutter of British politics is continuing. Their leadership and spokespeople have lurched even further to the right as the Tories do their Brexit work for them. The deep prejudice within this hollowed out party is being exposed – and the Green party will continue to challenge this bigotry every time it rears its ugly head.feedback

Apr 27 2017 - Labour Party

The Green party is being realistic about what’s needed to form a progressive government. Elsewhere local parties are stepping up, but leaders need to act. Last night something remarkable happened in Brighton. Local party members from the Liberal Democrats stood aside in Brighton Pavilion, and the Greens stood down in Brighton Kemptown. People who have spent years campaigning in these places took the decision to put aside party allegiances and work together so we have the best possible chance of delivering a fairer voting system and beating the Tories on 8 June. These choices were not easy, indeed they are acts of political bravery.feedback

Apr 24 2017

Ukip's 'integration agenda' is an assault on multiculturalism and an attack on Muslims. It's full-throttled Islamophobia.feedback

Apr 23 2017

While the Labour and Lib Dem leadership are lagging behind their own members and the general public on electoral alliances, it's great to see people taking things into their own hands.feedback

Apr 19 2017

Britain is at a crossroads – and this election will dictate the very future of our country. Many of the public want us to join forces to help stop the Tories from further wrecking our country for generations to come and we hope you will be willing to at least take the first step and meet with us.feedback

Apr 19 2017 - Brexit

Our call for a meeting between party leaders isn't about the Greens standing aside – it's about giving people in this country the best possible chance of defeating the Conservatives and bringing in a truly democratic voting system.feedback

Apr 12 2017

The appalling state of some housing association homes is the result of years of deregulation and profit-seeking being prioritised over the building of decent homes. No one should have to live in these kind of conditions. Mould, flooding and rats might be relatively common in Londoners' homes, but that doesn't make their presence in any way acceptable.feedback

Mar 31 2017 - Brexit

For young people in particular, let down by Brexit, the Green message is one of a more hopeful alternative.feedback

Mar 12 2017

It's outrageous that the government has ploughed a million pounds of taxpayers' money into consultancy for a privatisation that simply shouldn't be happening in the first place.feedback

Mar 04 2017

Clearly, there are questions to be answered about the Leave campaign's use of big data and a potentially huge 'in kind' donation by Cambridge Analytica. To have a foreign billionaire's fingerprints left all over such a seismic moment in British history is deeply concerning and requires urgent further investigation as to whether electoral law was broken.feedback

Feb 07 2017 - World Trade Organization

The vote they're offering - which will give MPs a choice between an extreme Brexit and falling off a cliff edge into WTO trade rules - isn't a concession, it's an ultimatum.feedback

Feb 07 2017

MPs must not be duped by the government's attempt to quell unrest on their back benches.feedback

Jan 31 2017 - Article 50

If we're serious about opposing an extreme Brexit then we can't just wave through Article 50.feedback

Feb 06 2013

There's still a long way to go. Changing people's values and culture takes a long time. Sometimes you have to change the laws first if you can, and that's what we are doing now. And I think, you know, in a few years time people will look back to today and think what was all the fuzz about – that was quite extraordinary.feedback
