Interesting idea from the Greens:
Greens MP Greg Barber said Ms Morand would get Greens preferences in Mount Waverley, which she holds by 0.4 of a percentage point, because ”she’s the only ALP MP who has stuck her head above the parapet on issues like same-sex marriage”.
Fair enough. What if the Greens were to adopt a broader policy of rating ALP candidates on their progressive credentials, and then preferencing those who have actually done something positive over the last term? The remainder – the Labor right and other sellouts – could simply be the recipients of open tickets that endorse neither major party.
I like the idea of treating the ALP left as potential allies and the ALP right as the repulsive creatures they are.
