Finally some good news for the Left.
Peace has broken out between the Greens and Labour.
One of the greatest barriers to a real relationship between the Greens and Labour has been the uncompromising arrogance of the Labour Party Caucus who have shown all the ability to share of an only child at Christmas. Any time in the past when the suggestion has been to work with the Greens, the right of the Party have threatened all sorts of aggro. It was so extreme that Labour were quietly looking to shaft the Greens once again if Labour, NZ First and the Greens had been the majority with a NZ First-Labour minority Government using the Greens to prop up their supply and confidence votes.
That all seems to have ended. Little recently met with the Green leadership and the new strategy is to spend the next 3 years talking about a Green-Labour Government. This news was finally met with acceptance within the Labour Caucus which serves to highlight that Little meant it when he threatened to knock heads together.
At last Labour have a leader who the factions are afraid enough of to follow and the relationship between NZs two largest progressive political parties is finally workable.
Pity it has taken so bloody long.
