The three main political parties are failing to show leadership on protecting the environment and developing a "green" economy, it has been claimed. On the eve of the party conferences, the UK's leading green groups warned that despite good performances by individual ministers and shadow ministers, none of the major parties had a coherent environmental programme. And the leaders of the Tories, Lib Dems and Labour had not shown consistent public leadership on green issues since the 2010 general election, a review edited by the Green Alliance found. Their failure was undermining investment in green infrastructure, and was disconnected from mainstream public opinion, which had not stopped caring about "our green and pleasant land" and continued to support renewables and action on climate change.
