Bradford's valedictory

Transcript here.

Parliament - and the Greens - will be very different without Bradford. She was a voice for the poor and downtrodden, a fighter for those at the bottom of the heap. And despite being a centre-left party, the absence of any similar voice in Labour is glaringly obvious. But Bradford wasn't just a voice - she also got results, which beneficiaries of her bills abolishing youth rates and child beating will be thanking her for for some time to come. I look forward to seeing what she will do next - and I hope it will make as much of a difference.
