Greens alliance under siege
Updated: 09:29, Saturday July 7, 2012
Prime Minister Julia Gillard’s close link to the Greens Party has reportedly been challenged by the party’s New South Wales secretary Sam Dastyari.
According to a report in the Weekend Australian, Mr Dastyari says Labor should consider preferencing the Greens last at the federal election.
Mr Dastyari describes the Greens as extremists not unlike ‘One Nation’ and says Labor must stop treating them like part of the family.
The report says the call was made without consulting the Prime Minister.
