A Liberal prospect in the NSW election was noticed awkwardly campaigning throughout the highway from his very own mom who was urging folks to vote for the Greens.
James Griffin is the incumbent MP for the seat of Manly and was handing out how-to-vote card outdoors a polling booth on Saturday in a blue shirt alongside his spouse.
But just right throughout the footpath decked out in a environmentally friendly shirt was his mother who has campaigned for the Greens for 25 yrs.
‘I’ve been working on mum’s vote for a couple of yrs,’ Mr Griffin advised Sky Information Australia.
‘She’s rather passionate about the atmosphere and excellent on her.’
He added it also made for ‘interesting Sunday supper discussions.’

His own mom Cathy was campaigning throughout the footpath for the Greens
His mother Cathy Griffin claimed she was very pleased of her son but that doesn’t mean she would give up her own political beliefs.
‘He’s been the Environment Minister for 18 months and carried out a wonderful task in my check out, built additional decisions beneficial for the natural environment than I believe any individual continuing him,’ she reported.
‘As far as the family’s concerned, we’re all in it collectively and we have really delighted political discussions, trigger it actually is a great deal of entertaining, but we help James.’
Mr Griffin claimed victory in the seat late on Saturday against rival Teal prospect Joeline Hackman.
‘The teals at a federal stage at the very least came in stating we’re likely to do it otherwise. And they did,’ he told his supporters at Seaforth Bowling Club.
But what we noticed at a point out amount in all of the northern beaches [and] north shore seats was soiled politics, and I consider that actually has damaged the teal brand.
‘They’ve just about grow to be a parody of them selves.’
Though the Liberals retained the seat there was a 10.5 for each cent swing away from the occasion, predominantly towards the teals.
