Julian Burnside is to take on Josh Frydenberg in Kooyong and the Greens have firmed in betting as a result.
The Greens who were $15 at the start of March are now into $4.00. The Coalition has eased from $1.22 out to $1.55 and Labor ($4.00 out to $5.00) is now the outsider.
Burnside QC is a respected barrister, who has been a thorn in the side of the government. His decision to enter politics with the Greens could make things very interesting in Kooyong.
In the past, I've said I wasn’t interested in politics. But it’s clear to me that things urgently need to change. So I’ve decided to run in Kooyong as @Greens candidate because of the situation our community, our country and our planet are facing… #auspol #KooyongVotes
