The Greens have their place, but they're not someone I want holding the office of Prime Minister, but they do need a seat at the table to help "keep the bastards honest" and have some influence on environmental policy.
But they've become too extreme.
I guess I'm a realist too.
I'm the same. A lot of their policy ideas actually make good sense. But a lot of them are outright madness, and unfortunately the madness seems to outweigh the good sense.
