"This won't destroy the Greens" - Jeanette Fitzsimons

From Nine To Noon, 9:08 am on 8 August 2017

Is the Green Party in meltdown as it moves to expel two of its 14 MPs at caucus this morning? Kennedy Graham and David Clendon yesterday spoke out against the co-leader Metiria Turei, saying her position on benefit fraud makes her no longer fit to be co-leader. The party has swiftly closed ranks around Mrs Turei, with party co-leader James Shaw firmly backing her leadership and saying the two MPs actions were unacceptable, a betrayal and a breach of caucus rules. Lynn Freeman speaks with the original co-leader of the Green Party, Jeanette Fitzsimons.
