The Greening Of Labor: Liberals Step Up Attack On Greens Influence
Jun 15, 2016
The Liberal Party has stepped up its attack on Greens influence over the Labor Party.
The party has launched a website, The Greening of Labor, an advertisement attacking the ALP, and a booklet detailing the activities of various Labor MPs and candidates.
The booklet focusses on the activities of the Labor Environmental Action Network, which it claims is “an incredibly powerful Labor faction..run by Green activists, and which is driving Labor policy”.
The Liberal Party booklet is shown below.

However it wasn’t an election issue. Both major parties ran completely dead on climate change. And for good reason. The Coalition knew it was weak on the “bad boy” image and the ALP was still licking its wounds from having its butt kicked from West Australia to Queensland by Tony Abbott hammering the “big tax on everything” and “Julia’s a liar” images.
