I was with some relatives over Christmas and two of the ladies, both
school teachers were discussing the coming Federal election.
As they are both irradescent greens you can imagine the subjects covered.
I just sat there with them listening but not taking part.
I finally said you are missing the ultimate subject that will have to
be faced, ENERGY which will govern everything !

WELL ! they both turned on me and said something like rubbish !
They then stopped the discussion got up and went into the kitchen.
I was amazed how two intelligent women could be so unable to discuss energy.

I have seen reactions like that elsewhere but not so personally.
Is this sort of reaction common with greens ?
It looks like insecurity to me.

No to answer your question, and are they fully paid up party members? I've been a party member for over 20 years, and more than once at branch meetings I have participated in some very lively debates on a wide range of subjects, not always seeing eye to eye on the subject at hand. If you see this as an opportunity to throw brick-bats at the "despised" enermy then go ahead.

The Greens have again disgraced themselves over the arson attack on Old Parliament House.
