The Liberals’ undermining of Tasmania’s democracy through heel-dragging on political donations and continued lack of commitment to transparency in government has Tasmania lagging the nation.
Cassy O'Connor MP | Greens leader
This election is being bought, via millions of dollars flowing into the Liberal party from the gambling industry.
Our democracy is being corrupted and the Hodgman Liberals are a willing party to that.
The Liberals and the gambling industry are spending at an unprecedented level.
Our democracy, and this election, are being bought and sold right before our eyes. We've never seen anything like it.
Liberal faces adorn Federal and other gambling venues. They have been bought by the pokies barons.
Andrea Dawkins MP | Greens' Gaming spokesperson
The Greens welcome news that Tasmania Police have agreed to review their investigation into allegations of bribery and corruption following the fall of the Liberal Bethune Government in 1972 and the subsequent Labor Government’s granting of the of the Launceston casino licence to the Farrell family, which led to their pokies monopoly deed.
This is an arrangement that began in the 70’s and has led to the destruction of families, and lives, in the decades since.

The Tasmanian Greens MPs enthusiastically congratulate Quentin Beresford on winning the Tasmania Book Prize with his book, The Rise and Fall of Gunns Limited.
Greens Leader, Cassy O'Connor said Beresford's masterpiece is a cautionary tale of corruption and greed that should be compulsory reading in Tasmanian high schools.
