Is this true here?

Sydney Morning Herald

The ALP is on full attack against the Greens in Australia…there is some thinking that it is because the Greens would like to see legacy industries collapse which are of course the stronghold of tired old union heavies:

In short, many Labor MPs and trade union officials believe that the Greens do not care about job losses in what they regard as environmentally unfriendly industries. And they have a point. For example, writing for on May 28, the NSW Greens Senator, Lee Rhiannon, and a freelance writer, Paul Fitzgerald, called for the scrapping of Sydney Airport and for a replacement to be built outside the Sydney Basin. Such a policy, if implemented, would destroy thousands of jobs and devastate the Australian economy.

Could it be the same issue exist in New Zealand?….I certainly think so. The same antagonism by Greens for mining, heavy industry and the like is there as well as the Greens poaching some hard left support as well as the urban tree-hugger Mums. Remember Clare Curran crying foul that the Greens were stealing Labour’s rightful voters?
