Caroline Lucas

Caroline Lucas has called on ten female politicians comprising of all parties to team up with her in forming what she called an “emergency cabinet”, aimed to hinder a no-deal Brexit. The Green Party MP in her Guardian writing precisely said all-women cabinet could “bring a different perspective”.

It could be figured out a “national unity government” could be her intent, based on the fact that her party wants a second Brexit referendum, however, aimed to force a no-confidence vote in Mr. Johnson. Adding that this concept – when a group of MPs from different parties team up to form a government was last observed before the Second World War.

Regarding ‘Caroline Lucas’ Guardian comment – though was once head of the Green Party – wrote:

“We need an – emergency cabinet – not fight a Brexit war but to work for reconciliation.

“And I believe this should be a cabinet of women. And added,

“Why women? Because I believe women have shown they can bring a different perspective to crises, are able to reach out to those they disagree with and cooperate to find solutions”.

Caroline Lucas proposal meant the national government could “press the pause button”, in a bid for another referendum that could offer a choice of Remain or the government of Brexit plan – deal or no deal. However, made it clear, ‘women can cooperate’.

Adding that, “this isn’t an attempt to replace one coup with another.

“A small group of us should not be deciding on Britain’s future and that is not what lies behind my initiative.

“But we need to find a way forward that allows the British people to decide which course they want to take”.

Meanwhile, Caroline Lucas has invited women from the Labour, Liberal Democrat and the Conservative parties to join her, which will also include ten other women that will be met in the coming days, but at the moment, there no proof if any them have accepted.

This suggestion has triggered a widespread discussion on social media, with a good number of persons expressing criticism. Based on this, Diane Abbott tweeted it “won’t work… whatever the gender of the participants”, Labour MP Clive Lewis called it a “very interesting proposal”, however, asked, “Where are the BAME women politicians?”.

What could change since a female PM couldn’t deliver Brexit?
