Colin James On The Greens

Colin James writing in today's NZ Herald has a look at the space occupied by the Green Party. He suggests that there is too strong a leftist component to the Green membership to allow a post election accommodation with National. Interestingly he also suggests that Winston Peters might want to support the ETS because of his Foreign Affairs portfolio. Will it really be an embarrassment for New Zealand to be seen not to rush into a new policy? Or would it be a bigger embarrassment to be the laughing stock of the international community for rushing and making huge mistakes?
