ANCIENT CHINESE CURSE TURNS GREEN

The national leader of the Greens, Bob Brown has predicted a Labor landslide in the forthcoming Victorian elections, against which hideous possibility Dr Brown prescribes the anti-venene of -

a green or two in the Parliamentary pews.

He says the Greens have the future concepts and in Parliament will be Victoria's best antidote to political boredom.

"[It will be] very difficult for the Greens to win seats but by golly if they get in there they're going to make Parliament interesting," Senator Brown said


At last Australian politics has produced the formula for the MTV generation, the Australian Greens.

Left-Labor policies, adolescent cynicism and campaign tactics from Greenpeace.

The Greens are presenting Australia with a national political IQ test. And they want us to fail.
