Don’t think for a minute that the headlines about a split in the Liberal Party is the only game in town. Lee “The Leopard” Rhiannon of The Greens has never changed her spots. She’s not so much a Green as a pink and always has been. Just like her parents, hard line communists, Bill and Freda Brown.

Following a meeting in Sydney on Wednesday night, Left Renewal issued a statement of principles that includes the “rejection of the state’s legitimacy”.

“We believe . . . that capitalism is a violent and antagonistic relation between workers, and those who exploit them. As workers, whether or not we are waged, we experience perpetual violence and that this violence must be brought to an end. We therefore fight to bring about the end of capitalism,” it states.
