And as I said, the minor parties don't need attractive policies. They just need a party organisation and a brand that can be recognised on the ballot paper as 'none of the above'.
We'll have to agree to disagree on that one. I dont see either the LDs or Greens making significant headway at the next GE unless they come up with some distinctive and sensible policies on the key issues. Simply promising a PeoplesVote or EURef2 is just not going to cut it with a majority of the electorate that either just wanted to leave (regardless of the deal) or aren't that bothered either way...
