The Gillard Labor Government now relies on support from the Australian Greens to hold power. That's a concern given some of the policy ideas being floated by Greens leader Bob Brown. It has been reported, for instance, that he proposed at the National Press Club the formation of "a global people's assembly based on one person, one vote, one value... a global Parliament."
It's difficult to think of any idea that would be more at odds with the interests of ordinary Australians. Australia would have 0.3% of the delegates at Bob Brown's global Parliament. We would be at the mercy of the peoples of other nations.
