Brendan Powell for the Greens

As of this morning Brendan got 7679 votes or 11.1% a 3.78% swing to the Greens. 22% of the vote still to count. I was handing out how to vote cards 8-6 and then scrutineering! I got a very strong sense that people are angry that the major parties don’t do what they say they will do and do what the majority of Australians don’t agree with! A huge percentage of the people did not want how to vote cards. All the people who had handed them out before noticed it.

It will be interesting to see how the Politian’s respond to the message being sent!!!
