Bob Brown shrugs off impact of split in Tasmanian Greens

Brown told Guardian Australia that Holloway had contacted him about the plan a month ago, and that he responded: “I wouldn’t be part of it in any shape or form.”

“[Holloway’s] been around since the 1970s, but he has never been involved in the politics of the Greens much either as an office holder or a candidate,” he said.

“I wish him well, I think if he gets registered for the federal or state election – he won’t for the federal election, it’s too late – he will feed more preferences to the Greens. I’ve always said the more the merrier with political parties.”
