The mind just boggles on how long it took for ALP to work out that the Greens are nothing but a bunch of eco-leftard extremists.
Labor should consider preferencing the Greens last at the federal election, the party's NSW secretary Sam Dastyari says in a declaration of war on Julia Gillard's alliance partner made without consulting the Prime Minister.
Mr Dastyari, who described the Greens as "extremists not unlike One Nation", said Labor must "stop treating them like they are part of our family ... Where it is in the Labor Party's interest to do so, we should consider placing (the Greens) last - just like we did with One Nation," he said.
The state secretary will move a motion at next weekend's NSW party conference calling on Labor to "no longer provide the Greens party automatic preferential treatment in any future preference negotiations", and hopes other state branches will follow suit.
Even AWU boss Paul Howes’ says it’s time for Labor to turn on the Greens and destroy them:
But beneath the marketing spin, the Greens are run by hardliners who believe they know better than anyone else. Beneath the marketing spin, the Greens are fundamentally opposed to the core values of the labour movement.
They openly want to crush the jobs of hardworking Australians in the very industries that support our national prosperity.
That's why Labor must fight the Greens with all its might. Labor and the Greens are not two sides of one coin. The Greens' political class is fundamentally opposed to jobs, and Labor is not. The Greens do not support working people. They would rather we all squat in share houses in Newtown than work in real jobs that actually make things.
So NSW Labor General Secretary Sam Dastyari's proposal to adopt a policy of not automatically preferencing the Greens is a good step in the right direction.
Labor has an obligation to stop extremists who threaten our democracy. We've done it before and we need to do it again.
Only one thing is guaranteed to kill the Weeds Greens. All the major parties have to do is stop giving them any preferences and presto, come the next federal election they’ll be nothing but a minor senate party.
