The job “pretending to be dead” instead of Kooyong

Sky News political reporter Tom Connell says the role of the “dead” Labor in the Kooyong headquarters is part of their “ruse” to defeat treasurer Josh Frydenberg.

Mr Connell said Labor knows it “cannot win” Kooyong’s seat alone.

“We are seeing a Monique Ryan win because she is finishing ahead of Labor and is able to make better use of that progressive vote, even by the Greens, in that particular seat,” Connell said.
