Don't you think it's a bit sad that some commentators think that the current Green party is NOT capable of forming a coalition Government with National?
What are the main policies on which the Greens are "not negotiable" that would NOT be acceptable to National? Perhaps they are policies that have the potential to cost taxpayers a huge amount?
I'd guess that most of Greens' welfare policies would be unpalatable to National. As would their puzzling anti-TPPA stance, and their patheticness on defence. Increasing refugee numbers similarly unwelcome. But their environmental policies - at least the ones that don't centre mainly on wealth redistribution - would be OK.
What of they could win strong action on river water quality, enhanced R&D into sustainable farming and another, larger slice of insulating and improving state and lower-end rental homes? Surely that would be worth achieving?
