Greens Leader Bob Brown says federal Labor minister Anthony Albanese has described four Labor members of Marrickville Council as “obsessed with playing political games at the expense of the local community” when he attacks the Greens over the controversial boycott of Israel motion.
“Labor was unanimous on this motion and it was in Anthony Albanese’s own electorate that Labor backed it from the outset. Did he not know his own Labor councillors? That’s hogwash. Every time Mr Albanese throws the book at the Greens he hits Labor,” Senator Brown said.
