LETTER TO THE EDITOR:
THE Greens now have a distinct tinge of brown (or is it blue?).
Ian Onley’s defence of the Greens is pragmatic but indefensible.
By voting with the government on changes to the Senate, the Greens have shown their true colours.
They have proven that they are as ruthless as the major parties when it comes to the lust for power.
The Greens have done a ‘Meg Lees’ and it will cost them dearly.
At the last Federal election three million Australians voted for independent candidates.
That salient rejection of the Tweedledee/Tweedledum voting ‘choice’ terrifies the born to rule brigade.
All their squawking rhetoric about “ineffective democracy” is a distraction from who and what really rules Australia the corporate plutocracy.
Those three million folks who voted against the major parties have seen through the veil of deceit created by the corporate media.
It may all be a moot point anyway.
As the United States military provokes Russia and China and prepares for major war(s) the only thing they believe can save the US economy from collapse Tweedledee and Tweedledum will vote together to support the ‘war effort’ and more brave Australians will be sacrificed to appease the US oligarchs.
Greens or no Greens, the future is grim.
