Sex and drug parties get into political bed together

THE Australian Sex Party and the Marijuana (HEMP) Party are getting into bed together for the upcoming federal election.

The parties will share joint tickets in a number of states in an effort to win the last two Senate seats in each jurisdiction. Under the new Senate voting rules the last two seats in many states are an unknown quantity.

Details of the new coalition will be announced at the Sex/Marijuana (HEMP) Party Queensland Senate launch, in Brisbane tomorrow.

The new coalition will appeal strongly to voters with its socially progressive and economically prudent policies. The agreement would appear to be the first of its kind between minor parties in Australian politics and is in line with the urging of political commentators like Antony Green, following the new voting laws.

The parties will combine their resources and votes in Queensland, Tasmania, SA, WA, NT and the ACT. In NSW the parties will run separate tickets but will preference each other.
