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.
