Libertarianz To Greens:  No Coalition Deal

Libertarianz today confirmed that they will not consider going into coalition with the Green Party.

Libertarianz has evaluated Green Party policies against 12 freedom-based criteria and has found that the Green Party is the most totalitarian party in parliament.

The Libertarianz offers a visual summary of this evaluation of the Green Party with the video "Ban It":
