unnamed commentator from the Ozleft gang is referring to, in this
rather wild extrapolation from what Alan Bradley said), but whoever
they are, they'd be wrong to think that anything in politics is
inevitable. However to make any intelligent assessment of where the
Greens *might* go, it'd be worth considering like parties overseas,
e.g. the German and French Greens, who are in and have recently been
in neoliberal governments and supported imperialist adventures, the US
Greens, who've recently ditched an independent electoral strategy, and
the British Greens, who don't oppose the Iraq occupation, but have
illusions in kinler, gentler UN occupation.
