There's nothing "mass" about them. They are a few thousand people -
maybe five times as many as there in the Socialist Alliance. "Small
electoral formation" would sum them up perfectly well.
For the record, I tried very hard to exclude the "new social layers"
from my Greens branch when I was in there, with a fair degree of
success. Our major sources of electoral support were areas that had
high concentrations of public housing. While our electorate-wide
votes were nothing much, particular neighbourhoods were much more
And yes, incidentally, we did have a perspective that at least
overlapped, and in part directly copied, some parts of the SP's work.
Oh yeah, yesterday a local fundamentalist Christian pastor, who is on
the local council, publically apologised for bullying the poor, after
the Greens got stuck into him. He's been going feral for a while
with "morality" campaigns, but made the mistake of starting to bother
people for having untidy yards and houses.
