It seems that ScoMo has "done a Keating" and won the unwinnable election.

Pollsters might have to re-write their methodology....

According to Antony Greene, they have been forced to change and that's the problem. They use to take random samples from the electoral rolls, and ring the people up on their landlines. Green reckoned that they used to be pretty reliable. Now that landlines are virtually a thing of the past, they can't do this and, for some reason, their whole system has now failed in a big way.

I think it's all over.

While I can now look forward to continuing to benefit from my wife receiving a tax refund of $2k paid into our joint account despite that fact that she doesn't work and I earn enough to pay over $50k tax per year (you do the math...), and I can also now look forward to future tax cuts that I don't need because I'm only going to hoard the money, I'm not thrilled with the result.

With this result it now looks by comparison I am a fare evader, while those that can't afford the fare, will have to walk instead of receiving a concession that I was willing to pay for.

Fare evasion in Melbourne is impossible to police. I had a work friend who never, ever paid her fares and eventually she got caught three times in a row... went to Magistrate's court and said her Myki didn't work and had her case dismissed. The system is UNENFORCEABLE.

Why bother buying Mykis if they don't enforce it?

Labor didn't deserve office, full-stop.

Remember how just a week ago 17% of voters said they were undecided.  I think we now know how the majority of those people voted.

We're seeing a big political shift where the ALP can no longer be assured of getting votes from blue-collar workers, especially in rural and regional Australia.

I think John Howard called it by saying that Bill decided to play the top end of town and the class thing. You have to be a govt for everyone. It is why Hawke and Howard Govts had the longevity.

Also, Bill decided to get off the workers bus,  and join the environmental bus. You can't be all things to all people.

85% -> Yes

People are fed up with this crap!
