Bob Brown’s success – a product of luck

Some think he was an evil genius, others a fantastically talented politician, but a closer look at the events surrounding the Greens' recent successes show that Bob Brown just got lucky.

According to some, Bob Brown was some kind of evil genius who managed to fool a large section of the population through a reassuring demeanor to ignore his radical agenda of communism and de-industrialising Australia into a waste land via a carbon tax. To others he was seen as a living treasure, a man who achieved fantastic political success through superb communication skills that awakened the national electorate to the importance of environmental issues.

The truth is a bit different however – he got lucky.
