Media Release - 22 June 2016
Former Greens leader Bob Brown is to visit Barnaby Joyce's closely-held seat of New England tomorrow after Joyce's jibe that 'even the trees were trying to get away from the Greens'.
"I'm keen to catch up again with the Greens' candidate Mercurius Goldstein in Glen Innes for a luncheon launch - he is way ahead of Barnaby on such issues as protecting farmlands from mining, and public education and Medicare from cutbacks or privatisation. I might have a thing or two to say about Barnaby".
Today Brown is touring the Green-inclined seat of Richmond with Greens candidate Dawn Walker.
