The Greens got so suckered by the Turnbull gambit, and those that pay are all the young indigenous unemployed youth in the Kimberley that signed up for a number of Green Army tree planting projects. Also the trainers and supervisors, all experienced indigenous mentors, to be put out of work.
All for Chairman Mal’s petty indulgences and backstabbing of conservatives, again and again. The environment loses, real conservationists lose, in exchange for a watered down building Union watchdog.
The Prime Minister, again and again, shows he is not fit to tie Tony Abbott’s bootlaces.
A signature environmental policy of the Abbott government, the Green Army, will be abolished at this month’s mid-year budget update, saving $360 million.
