Just reading her opinion pieces in the herald, they come across well to me. I have a terrible left leaning bias though. I also sometimes read Mike Hoskings opinion pieces they usually make me laugh.

It is a shame she is with the Greens as the likes of Marama Davidson & Julie Ann Genter just seem to piss me off every time they open their mouths. Labour is too far right for her idealism, ,maybe she can make the greens less loopy over time.

I think you are rigtht that Chloe is very different to the 2 others you mention. I like Chloe´s style but don´t agree with much she says. If she is the future of the Green´s she will take them even further away from the roots planted by Rod & Jeanette all those years ago, 2 people that were real and genuine environmentalists and were guided in their politics by what was best for the environment. Sadly today´s Green Party is not a true environmental party but a far left political party and many of their MPs are misguided social warriors.
Tens of thousands of voters would want to vote for real thoughtful and realistic environmental policies but are not getting that option from the current lots in Parliament.

Just in case you thought the Greens were heading for the mainstream.

Apparently sexism is OK as long as it delivers power to the girls according to Genter. She missed out under their current model, so now reckons it's limiting female representation.

How about the blokes who are under represented in the Greens? Where is the angst? Where is the outrage?

Just goes to show "diversity" is about a power grab....nothing more.

Well well, did I just see a pig fly past? Nice to see we can agree on something tim23.
