On Greens preferences

Victorian Convenor of the Animal Justice Party Bruce Poon writes: Re. "A soy latte and preferences please" (yesterday). Crikey has reported today the widely held but completely false belief that the AJP cost the Greens a seat in the ACT at the last federal election. This is despite me pointing out to your journalist the clear error in that view. If you took the time to look up the AEC website, you would clearly see that the Greens went down by a fair margin, unrelated to our preferences.
