Green or red, it is not necessarily the Greens' political colours that should interest voters, but their economic philosophy, write Nick O'Malley and David Humphries.
Given the SMH isn't allowing comments on this article, I have to comment here.
Nice one Fairfax running comment as news, without giving us any background on who's slinging the mud or their agenda. One of the reasons I don't tend to read Fairfax media.
Note the breadcrumb showing the section gives no indication that this is comment or opinion. Sloppy.

And whoever subbed the article, WTF?
If they sat with Brown and really talked to him, if they asked him what his core philosophy was, the one big idea that drives the Greens over any other, he'd tell them a story that would make their hair curl.
The article then goes on to talk about Brown tracing his political awakening to a hike along the length of the Franklin River. Hair curling stuff!
And just in case the SMH goes and modifies or removes the article, here's a screenshot.
