What a surprise – Greens prefer Labour

The Green party has announced it would prefrer to work with Labour.

I hope the delay in announcing that has been an eleaborate ploy to gain attention rather than an indication they were seriously considering anything else. Because if they really needed the weeks it’s taken them to make the announcement to work out their preferred coalition partner they’re too stupid to be in parliament let alone government.

Of course they’d prefer Labour because the Greens are a party of the left and that’s their greatest weakness.

If they were strong on the environment and moderate on social and economic issues they’d be the only centre party which stood for anything and hold the balance of power election after election.

But their radical social and economic agenda puts them on the extreme left which means Labour’s can take them for granted so their destiny is in Labour’s hands not their own.

    No real surprise here.
    It makes a mockery of the “consultation” they engage in.

    Bit like a Cathedral Window Cake really – green, red and nutty.

    I love the Greens/watermelon analogy – hard and green on the outside – soft, squashy and a pink shade of red on the inside. It fits them to a T!!
