The release of the Liberal Party How-To-Vote shows that they are giving preferences to the Greens Party in Grayndler.

The Greens Party are once again trying to mislead people by suggesting that if voters vote 1 Green and 2 Labor, their preference will be counted for Labor.

If Labor has the highest number of votes and the Greens second highest, then Greens Party preferences will not be counted.

Tony Abbott wants the Greens Party to win this seat. That’s why Liberal preferences are going to the Greens Party.

The Greens Party want to pretend that the threat posed by Tony Abbott does not exist.

I look forward to the Greens Party breaking their duck and criticising the Liberals, Tony Abbott and his extreme views – just once would be nice.

Only Labor can stop Tony Abbott.
