...Will the Greens be “fated’ by the words of Don Chip in summing up his “raisons d'état” on separating himself from the Liberal Party on the 24th March 1977:-


.#...I have become disenchanted with party politics as they are practised in this country and with the pressure groups which have an undue influence on the major political parties. The parties seem to polarise on almost every issue, sometimes seemingly just for the sake of it, and I wonder if the ordinary voter is not becoming sick and tired of the vested interests which unduly influence political parties and yearns for the emergence of a third political force, representing middle-of-the-road policies which would owe allegiance to no outside pressure group. Perhaps it may be the right time to test that proposition…#.

...Liberal and Labor will eventually poach the ground of the Greens, as they did the Democrats no doubt!
