The UK’s first Green MP Caroline Lucas tells about life as an outsider in the country’s most exclusive club, Parliament, and exposes the absurdities, inefficiencies and baffling customs of the seat of government. As the only Green and as a woman, Lucas found herself fighting for change in a club bound by tradition and self-interest when she was elected to represent Brighton and Hove in 2010. She describes what it is like to defend the interests of her constituents, to challenge the establishment and to balance the demands of work and family.

Lucas joined the Green Party in 1986. Her first electoral success was in Oxford when she held a seat on Oxfordshire County Council between 1993 and 1997. She became a Member of the European Parliament for the South East of England in 1999 and was re-elected in 2004. Lucas became the Green Party’s first leader in 2008, stepping down in 2012 to concentrate on her parliamentary duties.

Here she talks to journalist and television presenter Gwenan Edwards.
