CityNews have had an interesting chat with the Greens’
leader Parliamentary Convenor, Meredith Hunter.
In particular here’s her view on how the contract is going:
- “We have an agreement with the Labor Party which forms part of our relationship, but I don’t know how the Labor Party feels when we vote with the others, you’d have to ask them that. There have been a number of occasions in the last six months where it [the Greens-Labor agreement] hasn’t stopped Labor from going out and slamming us. Does that mean that there is a dummy spit and we go: ‘Well that’s it! It’s all over! Hand the keys over, it’s done!’ No. You have got to be a little bit tougher than that.
“What has developed is a good working relationship with many ministers. It would, however, be fair to say that there are people (ministers) that are more enthusiastic than others (when dealing with the Greens).”
Also apparently the Green and Labor policy objectives are “not too far apart”.
