Greens at 10 paces. All is not well with the Australian Young Greens, with recently appointed co-convener Sophie Jamieson taking to Facebook to call out her fellow members for “criticism and aggression”. Jamieson writes in the post, which has sparked fierce debate in the group: “I have been met with daily criticism and intimidation. I have been called names … I have taken phonecalls from members in tears about the behaviour of other members.”

Our source tells us members have been leaving the group, which is described as “dysfunctional” and a “clusterfuck” in one Facebook comment. We contacted Jamieson to find out why she wrote the Facebook post, but did not hear back by deadline.
