Sir Bob Jones – Lately there was a Federal by-election in Australia within the Labour-held marginal seat of Eden-Monaro. In a decent race Labour scraped again, due to the Greens preferential votes going their means.
However word this.
The Australian Greens chief Adam Bandt remarked afterwards, “the end result despatched a transparent message to the federal government about performing on local weather change.”
THE CLEAR MESSAGE: The Greens vote dropped by a 3rd from 9% to six%.
As in New Zealand the Australian Greens are making little political headway when if world warming is as critical as they insist, which it’s, then they need to be doing so much higher. However as right here, their fixated attachment to the Labour Social gathering disqualifies them from being handled as a real Inexperienced Social gathering, which they’re not.
The absurdity right here is there’s little or no distinction between Labour and Nationwide however to deal with one as a pariah disqualifies them and their Inexperienced message from being handled severely. Within the New Zealand context, they’re an excessive left-wing Social gathering with a “Inexperienced” appendage.
I’ve little question that within the ranks of each major Events there are quite a few MPs with a robust Inexperienced private agenda. If the Greens see a Parliamentary position then that ought to be to enter coalition with any majority Social gathering in order to push their agenda. The undeniable fact is that they’re frauds.
