Rats sink the ship before fleeing
So, the Greens are going to force an election. However, they are not going to do this before they have helped to force through a Budget that will apparently be very hard for the majority of people and cruel for the most vulnerable people in society; this whilst leaving the wealthy elite virtually untouched.
Another way of putting this is: the rats are going to leave the sinking ship but not before they have dumped on the ordinary passengers, especially the ones in steerage, whilst ensuring the first-class passengers have comfortable lifeboats.
