Honourable Friends?

Caroline Lucas

Caroline Lucas is an outsider, inside, fighting for parliamentary reform and for the interests of her constituents. She is a politician with a radical mission and a clear vision of how change can be achieved. From the NHS to corporate tax evasion, from climate change to immigration, Honourable Friends? tells the story of 5 years in Westminster and offers bold and practical suggestions for a fairer British political system. It is a unique book by a unique politician and activist.

[An] important book... Lucas, as one of the world's bravest and most principled politicians, is perfectly positioned to share hard-won wisdom that will help us

Naomi Klein

An honest, absorbing and often very funny look at how British democracy really works. Lucas makes a compelling case for the radical reform of our arrogantly outdated political system

Melissa Benn

Caroline Lucas was a breath of fresh air when she was elected as Britain's first Green MP in 2010. This book is an account of her experiences in parliament. Read it
