The Green Conference

Why do the Greens get such a dream run from the media. Remember the delight from the media in tearing apart the Labour Party during its conference this year - PM's speech sabotaged and that dreadful quartet??

There were similar opportunities with the Greens this weekend, particularly if you chose to analyse what they were calling for. But they have been given a pass.

This article from today's NZ Herald is a good example. John Armstrong could have done better.

We feel sorry for the Greens and their thirst for power. Looks like they will have quite a while to wait. If they were a Green Party they could be in coalition with either National or Labour. But the Neo-Marxists and Anarchists make Labour deeply uncomfortable, and make a coalition with National almost impossible.
