Christine Milne has resigned from the Leadership of the Australian Greens, and it appears she won’t be standing again for the 2016 Senate Elections. Whilst I’d like to say good riddance, the issue with the Greens go beyond leader’s, as Chris Kenny (http://www.theaustralian.com.au/opinion/columnists/greens-leadership-christine-milne-was-a-snarling-negative-leader/story-fn8qlm5e-1227338470767) pointed out, its their policies and their hypocritical views which are on the nose.
The Greens new leader is Richard Di Natale, a well spoken individual and a GP, his co-deputies are Scott Ludlam (WA Greens Senator) and Larissa Waters (QLD Greens Senator). When you break down this leadership team, 67% are male. Those males are not gay. The only woman is not a lesbian. According to the lefts own admission, one could argue that The Greens are nothing but a sexist, misogynist, homophobic Party.
Where is the diversity in their leadership? The Greens were quick to attack the Liberal Party for lack of diversity – do they work on the premise “do what we say and not what we do?” For a party that champions diversity they aren’t doing too well at the moment.
