Greens new Reality isn’t like the old

To state the obvious. How they react to the new reality will determine their success – the trouble is they haven’t been in the situation before, so it might be wise of them to take some time and ask if some fundamental changes in approach will benefit them, rather than rushing headlong forward opposing everything. Or they could spend the next decade hoping for the golden ring of a minority government again. Not likely. How about trying something new.

As they themselves will, say, we don’t have time for the turtle-like advances of the increase in Green votes. Advancing their environmental agenda isn’t going to wait until they finally get their day in, say 2030.
