Britain's first Green Party MP is Caroline Lucas in Brighton.

I honestly thought it would take a massive environmental disaster in the UK before we beat the first-past-the post system. Maybe people are realising Climate Change is already a disaster. A hope for survival, a voice for radical policies that is isn't tainted with the odour of racism. I didn't have a candidate myself again because of the costs, but this has lit a fire again. We worked years ago with a Plaid Cymru MP we formed a pact with, but to beat the three-party system in our own right is astonishing.

Whatever your place on the political spectrum, I believe this has got to be a useful wake up call for the traditional political parties bogged down in the mire of power-play and spin. Will a hung Parliament actually bring better government?
