One rule of politics is to never believe a rumour until someone denies it!
Claire Trevett in the Herald reports:
Sue Bradford and Matt McCarten have rejected speculation they are about to start a new left-wing party – but neither will rule out doing so at some future point. …
Yesterday, both Ms Bradford and Mr McCarten said there were no current moves to do so and they had not discussed the idea with each other.
However, both believed there were virtues in the idea.
What I find interesting is that neither McCarten or Bradford see the Greens as a suitable vehicle.Tags: Matt McCarten, Sue Bradford
