LETTER: Are the Greens just the Labor Party?
I BASHED my head against a brick wall trying to be a greenie in The Queensland Greens for 25 years.
I held both branch and State positions.
This current NSW debacle is just an internal squabble between their different factions.
The "experts" have the cause right. It is a far left squabble for power.
But the same "experts" can't figure out just who runs The Greens.
It's the Labor Party. Which means the same people who tell Labor pollies what to do.
Certain people in the Greens have access to unlimited people who can be used to stack branches and run for office.
That ensures those people and their allies, fill all key positions in the management of the Greens.
They even go to school to learn how to do it. People who oppose them get bullied out of the party.
But every so often these people squabble amongst themselves.
The NSW explosion is one lot showing the other they'd rather lose the election than let them win!
My advice as a former greenie; don't vote for the Greens.
The people behind them are as green as a bitumen road and a high rise apartment block.
