The people had lost faith in the political establishment. Expenses scandals, cash for questions, fat-cat bankers, austerity, riots - the whole country was crying out for a new direction, a fresh start. Step forward John Brown, future leader of the Green Party. A man with vision. A man with charisma. But a man with a problem.
John decides to give one, last blistering farewell speech. The party faithful rise as one to greet their hero. John stands to deliver his final, stark message to the waiting world. "Go green...or die." Little could he know just how profound those words would be.
