Comment: The knives are out for the Green party

Published 4th February 2015

Molly argues that opponents of the Green Party are using figures dressed up as irrefutable truths to try and discredit a Party whose principle intention is to create a fairer and more equal society.

Key quote:

“The fact that these attacks have focused entirely on the costings of our policies and not on the principle of why we wish to introduce them makes it clear that our opponents are involved in a self-interested rubbishing campaign. What could and should be an open and informed discussion about the kind of society we wish to live in is obscured by weapons of mass distraction – a series of accounting exercises, using figures as weapons dressed up as irrefutable truths.”
