Green hypocrisy alert

The Greens are big fans of banning things. There is even a massive list of things they want banned. In the past several days they have posts adding more things they want banned. controlled or taxed.

Today they are talking about banning and controlling again, this time it is the Super Fund and where they invest.

Green Party co-leader Russel Norman today said the fund had a “long record of complacency towards ethical investment” and it was no surprise it been caught investing in tobacco.

“The fund directors have been caught out previously for unethical investment behaviour after it was revealed they were profiting from the whaling industry and the cluster munitions industry,” he said.

“This is not a professional way to manage a $19 billion investment fund and risks serious damage to our reputation as a responsible member of the world community.”

I totally support the Greens attack on the Super Fund for investing in a company with a subsidiary that makes cigarettes .They should instead invest in cannabis and Kronic production which the Greens tell us is totally healthy and is about the only things they want un-banned.
