More reasons for total disillusion with anybody in New Zealand political life.
Bradbury complains of Marama Davidson block him on Twitter but that’s what he did to me a while back.
For all that he’s absolutely right on this.
"While the climate burns, the Greens read a poem to their vegan electric bicycle and will predictably blame everyone else when that self mutilates them at the ballot box."
UPDATE – MARAMA STRIKES BACK:
Sigh – the continued march towards political irrelevancy and transformation of the Greens into an alienating woke middle class identity politics vehicle continues at pace

That face you pull when you suddenly realise Julie Anne Genter was a way better choice as leader.
Green co-leader Marama Davidson has called on the “bros” to “delete” themselves in a Twitter rant criticising the treatment of ethnic communities in New Zealand.
In late-night tirade, Ms Davidson said ethnic communities had been treated like “economic units” long before the release of secret phone recordings by former National MP Jami-Lee Ross highlighted an alleged cash-for-candidate system.
In her tweets, Ms Davidson said “white immigrants” had never been “slayed” by the same derogatory or dehumanising abuse as Asian citizens or people of colour.
“Under this long-standing false narrative, struggling and marginalised communities have been pit against each other,” Ms Davidson wrote, saying people shouldn’t be surprised by the revelations coming out of the National Party.
Admitting she was “p*ssed”, Ms Davidson kept her most brutal comments for the political analysts she labelled as the “bros” that “cover up power abusers”.
“Get out. Delete yourselves,” she said.
