Contempt for the democratic process (letter)


by Brian Handley

News Weekly, October 23, 2004
Sir,

South Australian Greens MP, Kris Hanna showed his true political colours with his outburst about voter greed and ignorance re-electing the Coalition.

The Greens' contempt for the democratic process is never far below the surface and will manifest itself whenever their agenda suffers a setback. Far from being warm and fuzzy, the political platform of the Greens is totalitarian in nature, bizarre in content and dangerous in practice.

The ignorance of which Kris Hanna speaks says more about those who are promoting and supporting their essentially anarchist political agenda. Both major parties need to stop flirting with Brown, Hanna and Co., and put the Greens last on their "how-to-vote" tickets in future elections. Hopefully, Latham and Labor have learned something from the logging fiasco in Tasmania.

Brian Handley,
Moe, Vic
