As I said, I watched it live, and all I got from it was Andrew Neil and his usual slippery questions (which I support because politicians need slippery questions for their slippery answers) trying to make a case that the Greens support terrorist organisations.
I can't watch the vid right now but if you could be so kind you could transcribe the offending comments? I just saw Andrew Neil desperately looking to find some argument which was not there.
Again, I ask are YOU asserting that the Greens 'welcome' ISIS? Do you base it all on this Sunday Politics show piece?
Sorry, but I am not that gullible.
...and I repeat, I am not voting Green this year, never have.
Agreed, and one could argue that paying a subscription for membership (for arguments sake) is evidence of support, but really the claims of "Greens welcome ISIS" are dramatic headlines at best. It is always a tightrope between supporting free thought and controlling the support of terrorist organisations of course, but her only crime was failing to win the intellectual argument.

She says it shouldn't be illegal to be a member but it should also remain illegal to help these organisations and be punishable to the full extent of the law.
I think she's very wrong in considering actively becoming a member is purely a thought as it clearly requires action but at no point does she say she welcomes or supports them.

Her main point was "You can't defend freedom by taking it away"
Her party deserves more support.
This is the first election where I can vote. If i vote it will definitely be for the green party. All the other parties are completely out touch with reality.

All the other parties are much more in touch with reality than anyone supporting these muppets! I
