Michael Lyon has formed a Council candidates ticket with a couple of now ex-Greens, himself being an ex-Greens.

Doesn’t take much to use The Greens party as a platform to further your political career, does it?

The current crop of would-bes make me sick (where’s my barf bag Buck$y?).

Chameleons come and go and Byron Shire has had its share – and now these people to make an impression on you all, oh and with a new face, Sama, bright as a button, and I bet you’ll know who to take your orders from, won’t you Sama Balson?

Cate Coorey’s all-female ticket – may all her candidates get voted in, they look like a group of goers to me.

  1. Maybe it is more a case that the fractured Greens cannot keep good candidates .

    The Dark Greens simply want to live in a fantasy Land called the Past, a place where nothing happens .

    This faction now appears to be running the local Greens which is how we are been offer their poor selection of Council candidates , especially for the Mayor’s position .

    However , as we live in a democracy here in Byron , one must hope that Cate Coorey values your enthusiastic support
