Greens to unveil alternative crime policy

PUBLISHED October 22, 2004

The Green party will today make crime a centrepiece of their last conference before a likely general election, in a break from their usual focus on climate change, genetically modified food and conflict.

Party spokesman Spencer Fitzgibbon said : "Other parties stir up the fear of crime for their own rightwing agendas. We are going to be tough on crime, not just tough on the offender.
