The Liberal Lord Mayor of Melbourne â€“ and former Victorian party leader â€“ Robert Doyle last night condemned the decision by his party to preference the Greens political party in the federal seat of Melbourne, handing the seat to the extreme-left group.
VEXNEWS Investigations Unit members attending a Master Builders Association function last night heard the senior Liberal address the gathering and refer to the decision as a â€œdisgraceâ€ and argued that the election of a Labor member have been a better outcome than electing the Greens party.
A gathering storm of concern has formed following the election of campus Marxist turned militant left-wing lawyer Adam Bandt as a federal Member of Parliament. Bandt â€“ as we have previously reported â€“ as a campus Marxist defended shoplifting on the basis that it was stealing from the enemy (capitalists).
An analysis of AEC counting makes it clear that Bandt â€“ whose party advocates 50% marginal income tax rates, death duties and an attack on private schools – was only elected because the Liberal How To Vote card put Bandt ahead of Laborâ€™s Cath Bowtell, a senior executive within Victorian Workcover and one-time senior official at the ACTU.
