I will not make this a political platform, but I have already admitted in thes forum that I am a shocking political junkey. As an election, it is remarkable. A hung parliament. Neither major parties with a majority, a Green in the lower house, four independants. How can any agreement be reached with such a mix! It will be days before we have a Government. It is an amzing result for the Liberals. I feel sad for Maxine McKew, but agree with her that the ALP election campaign was unfocused, off message and ineffective. The Liberal campaign was tight, disciplined and targetted. I am excited that Gai Brodtmann is the new member for the electorate of Canberra. I knew you could do it!
I predict we will be back to the election booths within 12 to 18 months. Back to watching the analysis and I await the ensueing blood bath as recriminations are forced home. And I promise, no more politics here.
