The Greens recognise that a healthy environment, economic and social justice, and a true democracy are interconnected. That is why we advocate a phased restructuring of the taxation system to shift the burden from labour to pollution and resource use; a basic income scheme for all, demolishing the poverty trap; and a strengthening of democracy and personal freedom through such measures as proportional representation, a Freedom of Information Act and a Bill of Rights. Hardly single issue!
I suggest that it is the grey parties who are "single issue". Their damaging reliance on "economic growth" as a solution to all ills will inevitably perpetuate a widening gap between rich and poor, greater environmental destruction and ultimately a lower quality of life.
