Today Brian Wilson joined me on Inside Politics to talk about the role of the Greens in the politial and economic turmoil south of the border and the decision of the party to elect a leader in the north. But I couldn't resist asking him who he would back in May. His answer - strict neutrality. He will campagn for both his wife and his colleague Steven Agnew.
