The Environmentalists have decided that National is not for them. This will be a huge boost for National. It may even sway my vote.
Greens co-leader Jeanette Fitzsimons said "on the whole" National's policies would take New Zealand in the wrong direction.
This from the people who have banned power stations, intruded on child discipline, want to ban decent showers and now want to tell us how many children we can have. Given this record, I think we can safely say that National policies would in fact be the right direction.
National leader John Key said this afternoon that the Greens in government meant environmental policies over economic.
I think that's the definition of an environmentalist - environment is more important than anything.
