The 41-year-old described as “greenwash” the idea that the main parties increasing interest in environmental issues meant a decline for his party.

He said: “We think they are not going far enough and are not radical enough and a lot of it's greenwash so when it comes to the crunch it doesn't happen.”

He admitted the Greens would not triumph in Kingston, despite aiming for wins in Brighton, Lewisham and Norwich, but wanted to get their message across.
