Green Party leader, Maisie Daisy, has responded to Prime Minister David Cameron's threat not to take part in televised election debates if the Greens are not also present.
"We have considered the Prime Minister's statement very carefully and, following meetings of the Organic Ruling Council and reports from the Peace and Herbal Committees, we have decided not to take part in televised debates. In doing this, we recognise that we will get less television coverage but so will Cameron - so it's not all bad", said Daisy.
The Green's statement comes after the Tory's calculation that including the Green Party leader in the debates would damage Labour leader Ed Miliband's chances in the election. Loyal Shadow Cabinet members were quick to point out that the best way of damaging Miliband's chances was to let him appear in the Leader's Debate - even if it was on his own.
Daisy also said that the party would include in its manifesto a pledge to give tax relief to companies developing solar powered peace sandals.
The Green Party went on to say that it would be planting 32 trees following its announcement to ensure that its decision-making process was carbon neutral.
