"The stain of the illogical and antisemitic BDS campaign will forever linger over the Greens.
Voters across NSW rejected the Greens because they forgot about rates, rubbish and recycling and starting wasting resources on fringe matters like attacking Israel.
Across the State, the Greens had massive swings against them.
They suffered major swings in Leichhardt, Woollahra, Marrickville, Randwick, Sydney City, Byron Shire, the Blue Mountains, Lane Cove and Waverley; with some of the results reaching double digits.
Since the departure of former Greens leader Bob Brown, there has been a plunge in Green support; Bob Brown was a moderating force when compared to the hard-line faction associated with Senator Lee Rhiannon.
It is not surprising that one of the largest swings came from Woollahra at almost 12 per cent; Randwick at almost nine per cent and Waverley at almost seven per cent – as all three electorates have significant Jewish populations who would have despised the Greens’ stand on Israel and the BDS."Read more here

How did Sergio go in his ward?ReplyDelete
Good question, geoff. Not sure.Delete
I was a scrutineer at the count.He knew he had no chance of being elected. His idea was to reduce the number of Greens votes and remove at least one Green from the Municipality.Delete
It worked a treat and now it looks like Marrickville has achieved the unachievable, but electing not only one Liberal, but a second in Sergio's Ward is possible.
