Ms Bennett blamed part of her 'mind blank' Tuesday on a huge cold she has but that will not wash. Politicians are expected to function 100% all of the time. They may be only human but if they fail at the first cold heaven help the country.
An Australian by birth Ms Bennett has lived in the UK since 1999 but that will also be a stumbling block for some voters.
But we all need to learn and biased media sources are selectively targeting some gaffes and some politicians leaving others well alone.
The UK Green party has experienced a surge in membership and popularity as voters turn away from the UK's traditional political parties. However at time of writing they only have one MP in parliament and that is former party leader Ms Lucas who represents Brighton.
What's that you say? Come back Caroline?
