Greens vs. Clover Moore

Can Clover Moore be beaten at the upcoming election for Sydney Lord Mayor on 10 September?

Lindsay Johnston thinks so. As an entrepreneur and former National Party member from a country town, he’s one of the most atypical Greens’ candidates the party has ever fielded.

Many years ago, he featured in a Four Corners episode explaining his fight with the big banks who tried to repossess his farm. Now, he’s the underdog again against popular incumbent Clover Moore.

So who is Lindsay Johnston? And how could he possibly excite a city suffering from election fatigue? Oliver Jacques spoke to him earlier this week and files this report.
