Keith Duncan, Pimlico
There has recently been derogatory and spiteful attacks on the Labor Party by people claiming to be disillusioned ex-ALP members, who have joined the Greens or Independents; (there must be an election soon). Obviously sour grapes by people who couldn’t handle not getting their own way for their idealistic left-wing, unelectable nonsense, and are obviously now discovering, they’re achieving even less success.
The Byron Greens can’t even agree with each other let alone 50+ per cent of Australians; it was Bob Carr’s Labor government that created our local National Parks and Nature Reserves from Tyagarah to Cumbebin Swamp to Arakwal National Park. When Nationals MP Ben Franklin arranged for the NSW government to stump up $20 million for the badly needed Byron bypass, The Greens even protested about building that (seriously).
They have achieved bugger-all in Byron, they’re just too busy organising futile protests like the infamous ‘Convoy to Clermont’. That was so successful for the Qld LNP in the federal election that Senator Matt Canavan begged them to come back for the State election, thank God the Greens didn’t repeat the folly.
Talk about an undisciplined mob, how can they be serious about governing for anyone, they have no idea how – nor the ability to remove this Morrison government. It makes one wonder, do they even want to?
