In the warped world view of the Canberra Greens building an environmentally friendly EV network on the bones of the Palestinians is somehow ethical.
I look forward to the Greens leading a boycott against Better Place in Canberra.

The ACT minority Labor Government is about to reject a Greens motion to legalise same sex marriage. They are going to vote against their own policy – a policy they took to the last election – because they don’t want to upset Kevin Rudd and the other reactionaries. CPSU affiliation to Canberra Labor has proved [...]
There are 1500 homeless every night in Canberra. At the same time there are about 1500 vacant hotel and motel rooms. Why not mandate those empty rooms for the homeless?
