I would like Labour to do more on the environment, and I would like it to become one of their top priorities, and let's be fair, at this election, so far it hasn't. But for this to happen, I believe we need to challenge the party from within, which is why I joined. The more members of the Labour party who care and challenge green issues, the more likely it is that it will become a core Labour policy.
Not long now before Britain will be the proud owner of a lovely shiny, brand spanking new government. Or a slightly souped up version of a rather knackered and clapped out old one. Or, as appears far more likely, a cut and shut job made up by the welding together of the diametrically opposed ideologies of two, maybe even three competing parties.
Ed Miliband has made it clear, on numerous occasions, he won't get into bed with Nicola Sturgeon. In fact some of his most passionate responses have come when dealing with this question. We now know Russell Brand has more chance of securing a cabinet position as there is clearly a very good chance he and Ed have at least shared a bed.
The Labour Party have added a sixth pledge to their list of promises to the UK people: 'Homes to buy and action on rents'. This comes hard on the heels of Ed Miliband announcing a whole raft of measures to help struggling renters - the most contentious being that rent rises will be capped at the rate of inflation under a Labour government, for the duration of longer three-year tenancies.
The failure of the Conservatives to move up a gear or two when the election campaign began has been striking. This is a party which in recent years has presided over some of the most encouraging headline growth figures in the world and which during the last parliament successfully laid the blame for the UK's financial crisis at the door of the Labour Party.
The heat of the election campaign this week gave way to a bit more light, with the publication of the manifestos of the major political parties. Rather than piecing together the parties' respective positions on development from speeches, blog posts or remarks in Parliament, we now have a formal written statement of what they would seek to achieve if successful in their bid to form the next Government. So what did we learn?
