  1. Both majors are playing the same game. A valid vote requires the voter to choose in order all candidates, first to last.

    So the other names on a ticket don’t matter. Greens *rarely* count in House of Reps votes, so the issue is preferences which usually go to Labor. As long as Liberal is numbered higher than the Labor candidate, Liberals wins that vote. Or, whoever is lower on the ballot loses.

    A green vote is only an issue for Labor if the voter then puts Labor below Liberal.

    So why now attack Green, “sloganism and extremism”? Is Labor polling showing Greens may win more than the 1 existing HR seat in Melbourne?

    Or does Labor need to clear the decks of rational thought for a stoush on asylum seekers?

    Curious either way.
