Why ‘the Greens’ silent on Iran nuclear deal?


The only place the Greens seem to be talking about the Iran nuclear deal struck yesterday is in your XYZ’s satire department.

The Australian Greens appear to have not released any media statements on this rather significant development in Iran_nuclear_illustrationglobal nuclear affairs, which is rather strange for this enthusiastically self-professed ‘anti-nuclear’ party.

Though, all is not lost!

Greens Senator Scott Ludlam did, however, have time to state yesterday in relation to the opening of the Australian Uranium Conference in Perth:

“It’s time the nuclear industry came to terms with the reality that a renaissance of the industry is impossible and resuscitation unlikely.”

Thank you Senator Ludlam and the Greens. We know where your concerns around nuclear power and potential armament lies.

What about Iran’s ‘nuclear renaissance’?

Have anything to say about that?

Evidently, the good senator’s concerns are not with the nation that chants ‘death to America’ and vows to wipe Israel off the map, but rather lies with shutting down Australia’s lucrative uranium mining, and rather benign nuclear industry.

Priorities, priorities…
