Green power struggle

The cuddly Greens may kick upstairs Robin Harper, until recently their sole MSP. Mr Harper may become a deputy presiding officer in the Scottish parliament. And why might the Green party do this?

The party's national convenor, now also an MSP, wants Harper's job. Titles! Hierarchy! They'll be after nuclear power next.
