LABOR backbencher Brenton Best has accused the Greens of taking over his ``no deal'' petition calling on the Labor and Liberal parties to rule out minority government.
Mr Best's online petition experienced a spike in popularity yesterday afternoon but many signatories appeared to be using fake names.
The list includes Job Detective, Examiner Sentme, Risdon Prison Inmates Collective and Heisenberg PicaPicaPicaSnorfal.
After a sluggish start, it had climbed to almost 100 signatures late yesterday.
Mr Best said he had been the target of anonymous emails from people he believed to be Greens supporters before and said he suspected the same people had populated his petition.
``You'd have to suspect that, wouldn't you? It's got the same flavour,'' he said.
A spokesman for Mr McKim dismissed the allegation and suggested Mr Best get a hobby.
``We are more focused on things like stopping climate change, lowering the cost of living, ending pokies addiction, tackling gun crime, protecting threatened species and ending the community divisions over forestry,'' the spokesman said.
The petition also received a number of serious responses, with petitioners calling on Mr Best to split with Labor now rather than support the current government.
Mr Best has said he would sit on the crossbench rather than form government with the Greens again but was committed to this term of government.
Premier Lara Giddings again refused to reign in the Braddon MP.
``What we have right now is the government as it is today, and we have a member of the Labor Party who strongly disagrees with the government as it is,'' Ms Giddings said.
``After the next election, if he wants to be a part of the Labor Party he will have to abide by the caucus decision.''
Mr Best said the petition was a ``sensible'' way for politicians to let people know their position on the Greens and invited critics, like Braddon Liberal MHA Adam Brooks, to add their name to the tally.
Mr Brooks declined the offer.
``If Brenton Best wants a majority government without the Greens then he'd better vote Liberal, because he wont get one by voting Labor,'' he said.
