Great Move Lidia! Keep Up the Good Work! By James Reed

Senator Lidia Thorpe has quit the Australian Greens over the Indigenous voice to parliament as their support for the advisory body is “at odds” with community activists who want a treaty first. Now, I like this honesty as it is getting to the end point of the agenda with no more beating around the bush. Hopefully now she will push on these radical agendas which will be excellent for the “Voice” referendum debate. She cannot be too radical for my taste. Sure, put a treaty up on the agenda, along with the rent payment scheme that was dropped a little while ago by another radical group. I say: go for it! Self-destruction of the “Voice” will be assured!

“Lidia Thorpe has sensationally quit the Greens after splitting from her party on the Indigenous voice to parliament, saying its support for the advisory body is “at odds” with community activists who want a treaty first.

Senator Thorpe, who was the Greens’ First Nations spokeswoman and is the co-founder of the party’s First Nations network, said she would continue to vote with the party on climate but wanted to “grow and amplify the black sovereign movement” in Australia.

Her resignation will be a major blow to Greens leader Adam Bandt, who has stuck by Senator Thorpe through several controversies. The party’s Senate representation will drop from 12 senators to 11.
