The Canberra Times reports on how Our Brave Leader was seriously having a go at the Greens yesterday, trying to paint them as just more of the cross bench rubbish which, over the years, has stupidly prevented him from doing whatever he pleases.
The flash point seems to be watering the small patch of grass in Kingston which he is determined to annihilate for reasons best known to himself. (Although if they do clearfell the inner south’s urban forest and demolish Manuka Oval residents might start to wonder if there’s some class warfare going on).
He appears to have been particularly stung by Caroline Le Couteur’s recent observation that there’s never a shortage of water for the unwanted arboretum.
Greens parliamentary convenor Meredith Hunter appears to be used to these tantrums and isn’t taking it too seriously.
