Senator Gary Humphries has today in a speech to the Senate declared GetUp! to be a front for the ALP and Greens.
This follows revelations in The Monthly that former GetUp! Executive Director Brett Solomon considered dropping the organisation’s guise of independence in 2007 and openly campaigning for Labor.
“GetUp! is a front for the Greens and, to a lesser extent, for the Australian Labor Party,” Senator Humphries said today in the Senate.
“It is not a credible independent observer of Australian politics; it is a player for one side.
“It is a party in all but name, and it should be regarded so by the Australian community.
Senator Humphries added that “as someone who has been the subject of two concerted campaigns from the Labor/Greens/ GetUp! alliance to try and elect extreme left candidates to the Senate for the ACT, I am very switched on to what they’re up to.
“GetUp! was funded at the recent election to the tune of a million dollars by the unions– possibly the same unions that fund the Labor Party.
“It’s time for Labor and the Greens to stop pulling the wool over the eyes of Australians and out their silent partners.
“I am very happy that Senator Eric Abetz has written to the AEC to seek an investigation into this blatantly partisan group,” Senator Humphries concluded.
