James Delingpole, in his Breitbart opinion piece below, gives a succinct message to the British Conservative party;
“Get rid of the Green Crap”.
As Delingpole writes..”In the Conservative mindset, green issues are one of those politically neutral, morally and socially positive causes you can embrace without betraying your principals or alienating your base… This delusion is widespread.”
Although he is writing of the British Conservative party, his message is equally applicable to those of us downunder.
The recent Australian elections seem to indicate the Aussie voters have received and understood this message.
Unfortunately NZ it appears is still in thrall of the “Watermelons”, green on the outside, red in the middle.
