I suggested this was a move to the centre to hoover up some of the Labour voters who can’t bring themselves to vote for David Cunliffe.
Now more evidence has come to light, following an extraordinary comment made by Russel Norman during an Interview on Newstalk ZB early today.
I think for the first time, Russel Norman and the Greens are saying they actually support oil and gas drilling in shallow zones off our coast.
Russel Norman is very clear. Exploration in shallow zones is ok – they’re only worried about deep sea drilling. This is a nice bit of positioning to snaffle some of Labour’s left flank.
The Greens are looking to become the 2nd largest party in parliament. Â Will be fun to watch. Â I always love it when lefties fight among themselves (which is, to be honest, almost always)
