Senior members of the Liberal Party have alleged that the ABC’s election analyst, Antony Green, is purposely delaying his call of the election to boost the number of followers of his Twitter account.
One source said: “Just look at the facts. Prior to the 2016 election, Anthony Green had just six followers on Twitter, including his mum, his aunty and the fake account he set up for his 13 cats, #Catspacular13.”
Sources inside the Labor Party have applauded Anthony Green’s pace to call the election. “Look if it weren’t for the delay, voters would focus on the fact that Labour only achieved 35% of the primary vote! Thanks to Anthony, voters are focused on the prospect of a hung parliament and learning who is Anthony Green.”
A senior official at the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) refused to speculate on the allegations but stated ‘We’re slightly disappointed followers of the AEC Twitter account haven’t increased, with exception to our new follower @Catspacular13.”
