A tipster tells us that Labor is already getting mileage off rumours of a Greens-Liberals preference deal:
“Labor has been calling members and supporters (anyone in their databases really, could be non-supporters also) to tell them they’ve received word of a definite done deal between the Greens and the libs on preferences, whereby the Libs would preference the Greens in exchange for the Greens running open tickets in marginal seats.”
Our tipster believed it was Labor making the calls, but Sky’s David Speers tweeted on Wednesday that it was the ACTU making the calls:
We have obtained a recording of the call (audio here), and it seems to be more related to the Senate voting reform deal. The caller says she is ”incredibly worried” about the deal between the Liberal Party and the Greens on Senate voting reform and asks for people to call Greens leader Richard Di Natale.
