Green demons or Kiwi battlers fighting for our planet?

In a recent Opinion piece, Simon Cunliffe does a good job of debunking the tired caricatures of the Greens. In fact I think he goes some way towards arguing for the importance of the NZ Green party's continued and increasing role in New Zealand politics. It is a refreshing perspective and I whole-heartedly agree. I think, like him, most of us have a soft spot for the planet, but at the same time get put off by the more exotic fringes of the Green party. Therefore the challenge is to ensure that in future elections the Greens are a viable mainstream party rather than a fringe party that barely makes the threshold. The only way for this to happen is for all those that agree with Simon Cunliffe's point to make their voices heard and engage the NZ Green Party.
