One of the more unpleasant aspects of the Green Party is their desire to supress views at odds with their own. For instance the Today programme interview with Professor Ian Plimer, the response of Green party Councillor Rupert Read, a Green Party councillor in Norwich was to complain to the BBC about allowing  "the fringe Australian geologist"  on air as it is "utterly obvious and everywhere accepted by atmospheric scientists that humans are responsible for the dire and continual upward trend in CO2 emissions." Cllr Read adds:

"By doing interviews like that, that you chose to air this morning, you are materially damaging the chances of an agreement at Copenhagen, an agreement that might just save our civilisation and species from self-destruction."

I wodner what he is like in the Town Hall. Does he complain to the Mayor if his own views are allowed to be challenged?
