Thanks for this David. Quite a long read, but I was gripped the whole way through.
I too have shifted from Labor to the greens. I agree that the greens need to work on economically feasible policy, but Labor are neither progressive enough, not indeed are they even left enough economically for my tastes. They play things far too safe.
Despite their heavy union influences, they aren’t even a genuine workers party. A lot of unions aren’t really interested in workers anymore either.
