The Greens party seems a bit surprised that stubbornly supporting a policy that has hundreds of desperate refugees drowning at sea might annoy some of their Labor mates. But they’re not so shocked that haven’t tried to turn the criticism into a grubby fund-raising opportunity. If they slithered any lower, they’d be subterranean.
PM Gillard’s government has done some good things. It’s got very little credit for any of it because of the perception they are being led by the nose by an extremist and ultra-cynical Left-wing party with one lower house MP that represents the views of an inner-city elite. Nick Mack argues that Julia Gillard – not Kevin Rudd – is ideally placed to take the Greens on and that she should before the parasite destroys its Prime Ministerial host.
