Via The Guardian:
New South Wales MP Jeremy Buckingham has quit the Greens party and says he will contest the next election as an independent.
The rogue MP announced he was “ripping up” his membership at a press conference on Thursday, after the party formally asked him to step aside as a candidate for the state election in March.
Describing the party as “toxic”, Buckingham said the Greens had “abandoned the core principles they were founded on” and were more focused on “bringing down capitalism” and “divisive identity politics” than acting on climate change.
“The NSW Greens are no longer focused on the environment,” he said. “They are no longer the party that Bob Brown founded and I in good conscience can no longer be a member of that party.”
Too right except on one front. The identity politics Greens are the useful idiots of blood-sucking capitalism via extremist support for environmental and worker destroying mass immigration.
Someone should sue them to get the name back.
