Post-election bitterness is not helpful

September 08, 2010

The Coalition is clearly extremely bitter about the final outcome of the election, but they are not assisting their cause by attacking the independents, lying about Greens’ policies, speaking scathingly about the colour of the new Government, and refusing to engage with it before it has even got off the ground.  How does having Greens in Parliament not benefit rural and regional Australia? People interested in the truth will look at the record of Greens in Federal and State Parliaments and local government, and the policies that guide them, to see that the country has been well-served by The Greens and will continue to be while ever The Greens have a voice.
