Is it just me or is there a Thatcherite dimension to the Greens' hatred of miners?
Now, don't get old Ned wrong. I'm all for clean/green. What gets up my nose is bourgeois greens who radiate a Thatcher-like disdain for what is left of the people formerly known as the working class.
Miners, loggers, old school industrial workers, and the like. Dirty people. Who do dirty work. And whom the b-g's will happily expunge without giving a thought to sources of alternative employment.
