Political Preferences

I know it's a bit late to comment on this, but...

The Government would have had a much easier time getting it's Medicare Levy Surcharge changes through the Senate if they directed preferences in Victoria to The Greens ahead of Family First in the 2004 election.

The stupid decision to give preferences to Family First in an attempt to beat The Greens to a senate quota have come back to bite them on the you know where.

It's my opinion that the ALP should always direct preferences to The Greens because their philosophy is closer to Labor's than the other minor parties... especially Family First.
