Xenophon favours old parties in preferences deal
14 August 2013
In Adelaide today, former Greens leader Bob Brown said Independent Senator Nick Xenophon will give preferences to Liberal and Labor before the Greens Senator Sarah Hanson-Young.

Bob Brown is in Adelaide as part of the Greens campaign.
