Great Peter Sissons BBC News interview with the new (and first ever) leader of the Green Party, Caroline Lucas MEP here:

The BBC reports that,

In her speech to the London conference she called for a windfall tax on energy companies and a "Green new deal" of investment in energy efficiency.
Ms Lucas branded bosses of energy companies energy "robber barons".
She told the conference: "Just three companies - BP, Centrica and Shell - together made £1,000 profit every second over the first six months of this year.
"These corporations are robbing from the poor to give to the rich and they know it. And it's about time they learned that, in a progressive democracy, there is no place for robber barons."
