The Greens got a kicking too in Queensland

The Queensland Greens have failed to win a seat in the state election and have suffered a fall in support.

The party’s biggest hope, Mt Coot-tha candidate Adam Stone, picked up 20.4 per cent of the vote in the western Brisbane seat, about three per cent down from 2009.

Overall, the Greens have picked up only 7.5 per cent of the vote counted so far, a 0.8 per cent drop.

Mr Stone said it was clear Queenslanders were set on kicking out Labor, affecting Greens and other minor party support.

“When voters really want to get rid of the government they tend to swing towards the other major party,” Mr Stone told AAP.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
