ATROUT - time to check your facts! Green politicians are highly educated, down to earth, real world people with real jobs,real hearts, and real democracy. As the last election showed, we are definately here to stay! Our increasing vote reflects the urgent wake up call that many are heeding - same old adversorial tunnel-visioned style of politics = same depressing rape and pillage results for planet Earth. We all owe it to ourselves and future generations to take a stand on the kind of environment and social/economic values we hand on. It's not enough to just talk about it...we're doing it now, and this is real honest grassroots power. Wait for the likes of John Key and his cronies to act with integrity on our behalf?...yeah right!

@Richard.. agree entirely. The only drawback is that the quality of the Green MPs is pretty terrible. A rag tag group of left over protestors and political children who won't make a cohesive politic force in Parliament. Imagine the mess that would result if the Greens leapt into bed with Labour at the next election!!! An ugly picture, for sure. By the following election the Greens would have lost 2/3rds of their support.

14 seats means they can take on the Labour Party as opposition. What I would like to see is some commonsense. NZ needs to move forward at the same time as we safeguard the environment. It can be done. NZ needs jobs, created responsibly. The Greens recent comments on mining shows the start of this hopefully.
