What a conglomeration of idealistic nonsense and outright hypocrisy in these howls of outrage by Greens supporters over Labor ditching certain tax policies. Are they actually serious about removing this Morrison government? Because they know – with Labor in power their opportunities to whinge and organise counterproductive protests will be greatly reduced; like Bob Brown did with that ill-conceived ‘convoy to Clermont’ in the last week of the 2019 Federal election campaign.
Labor’s primary vote crashed five per cent overnight because there were no Greens candidates for the mining communities to take their anger out on, so they unloaded on Labor. But that wasn’t the only reason Labor lost, there was a combination of too many complex tax changes – the same ones the Greens are now whinging about Labor ditching – and the massive pork barrelling by the coalition in marginal seats.
The Greens can spin this Adani protest as much as they want, but it cost us seats we badly needed in Qld. If the Greens want to see real action on climate change, they need to have a really hard look at their behaviour, because they have so far achieved ZERO. Australia is out of time, this Morrison government has to be removed by any means possible, and only Labor can do that. But, sadly, anyone with friends like the Greens doesn’t need enemies.
