      OK, last things first:

      The final comment about the ALP is over the top. It might have been
      acceptable if you had written "I have yet to find anyone in the ALP
      WITH REAL INFLUENCE who disagrees with this ideology."

      You are correct about Venezuela. The situation in Bolivia is
      extremely interesting too, and people should feel free to keep
      posting material about it. (Hint! Hint!)

      On the main topic: I haven't noticed the Greens particularly
      tailoring their actions according to Bob's schemas. I presume that
      makes them a sect too.

      In particular, many Greens branches/candidates are unlikely to direct
      preferences in the upcoming Federal election. I'm not sure what's
      going to happen up here. At the very least we won't be announcing our
      decision until very late in the campaign.
