The Greens define "democracy"
I listened with interest as Paul Homes interviewed Jeanette Fitzsimons this morning. And I was particularly interested in the Greens' unique perspective on democracy in New Zealand. Fitzsimons completely ruled out talking with National after the election, even if more New Zealanders vote for National than for any other party. However the Greens are quite happy to talk with Labour and other parties to help them to form a "coalition of the losers" and impose their will upon the majority. That's democracy, watermelon style!
