The local Greens are going through their preselection process at the moment and there’s a bit of jockeying going on. Considering how badly they chose last time, how dumb must the Greens’ membership be?

I predict they’ll confirm their ineptitude by putting up the same stunned mullets as last time with a highly qualified newer member (who I won’t name) being put in an unelectable position on the ticket.

I can understand the membership being glibbed by Simon Richardson (but who wasn’t?) but have other Greens councillors done anything to earn our trust?

The only intelligent political thing they ever did was to over-enthusiastically join up with the Greens in order to jump the queue and cash in on the Greens’ past glories.

Simon Richardson apparently won’t be running and will perhaps join the ‘wets’ in the Liberal Party, who are his natural constituency ie, people who don’t like coal but aren’t about to bust their gut in pursuit of an ideal that involves more than posturing.

I really hope that electors will reject the party rort at the next election and vote for individuals, not tickets.
