It looks like it's all over for the Green Party. It has washed its hands rigorously of the responsibility of government and decided to spend the next five years in the social distance of the opposition benches.

It has checked out, despite warning us that the world is facing obliteration if its policies are not implemented within the next 10 years. The planet is on fire, it said.

If we don't act soon, Mother Earth will condemn us all to damnation. Only a national retrofitting scheme can save us - and perhaps a few more cycle lanes.
