Sigh.. the calibre of our politicians

Postby aardvark_admin » Fri Oct 31, 2014 9:09 am ... -an-option

Really? These people have a say in how our country is run?

Do they not teach science in the Green's world?

Maybe they can solve AGW by way of homeopathy?


I'll never be voting Green again!

Every party seems to have the embarassing MP they would rather forget.
Apparently he is not well regarded by the rest of the caucus, and most of the party. But there is a small old gaurd group of members who still want him as an MP so they are stuck with him. Most of the Greens these days are trying to move away from the older roots of the party with the anti-science perception.
I think under the leadership of Norman and Turei they have done a good job of pushing progressive, evidence based ideas and policies. But then this guy opens his mouth and undoes all of it.
I think a lot quietly hoped that wing of the party would jump over to Mana.

He's entitled to his opinion but it doesn't mean that is the party policy, just his.

Queen Liz is a follower of Homeopathy and the old duck is still alive at 84. When Phil gets crook he still goes into the hospital system for treatment.

As Malc says, every party has their pet dipshidz and he appears to be one of them.
