We learned a couple of things about the Greens, yesterday… They don’t support human rights and they don’t care about climate change.
First, they wouldn’t support the Education (Freedom of Association) Amendment Bill – even just as far as select committee.
And secondly, when Parliament ran out of members’ bills to debate, and started debating the various reports on the order paper that they almost never get to, the Greens wouldn’t even take one call to discuss the Select Committee Review of the Emissions Trading Scheme. Every Green MP could have taken a 10-minute speech to lay out the Greens’ vision for combating climate change, they could have controlled Parliament’s agenda and presented a unified and united view on what they think we must do. But I guess they don’t have one. Like everyone else, they preferred to take the evening off. Human rights and climate change just aren’t that important…
Ouch. What does Frog say in defence?Tags: Climate Change, Greens, Parliament, VSM
