Both great candidates

LETTER

The polling for co-leader of the Green Party is understandably labelled by the media as a resounding victory, but by a quirk of democracy this is unfair. The figures show that many of us voting members were of like mind, which is good; but they do not show that, judging from discussions I have witnessed, in each individual mind it was a close call, which is also good. The respect and support for both candidates is remarkably high.
