Good on the Greens

The Greens released today, an alternate Budget. Much of it is wooly thinking but good on them for taking the time to do it. It just goes to show that it is the Greens and not Labour that are the real opposition.

With Russel Norman making a good showing in Mt Albert at the moment and sound sensible reasoning coming from the Greens it finally looks like New Zealand is in the position that we can move forward together and leave behind the divisivness of labour and Helen Clark.

The way the Greens have conducted themselves since the election deserves commendation not condemnation.

I still don’t fully agree with them and their members especially ne’erdowells like Keith locke and Sue Bradford but I think Russel Norman may just be coming into his own, and if Metiria Turei becomes co-leader they may just be getting somewhere.
