Election 07 – It’s over

By Joe Canberran - 25 November 2007 61

It’s over and I’m hungover like a really hung over thing after going to the Electionalia which was after a hard day handing out how to vote cards.

For those interested Humphries retained his senate seat (see the aec website for senate results here).

Oh and Labor won EVERYWHERE else, in the ACT and the rest of the country.

Now I’m going back to bed.

What’s Your opinion?

Remember Costello has a brother who is morality and substance. I think Peter Costello is a decent bloke who just went the wrong way personality-wise, but at base he’s a decent bloke. Quite sure of it.

“Poor old Costello, he has copped some really bad press over the years. I’m not quite sure why they all hate him so much. Then again, I still think Keating was great, too.

Reckon Turnbull, unless they stick someone else up to cop the rotten eggs and then put Turnbull up at election time.”

I think he struggles with his public persona except when really challenged. Like when he’s resigning. :-/ Suddenly the guy with the smarmy smile who makes you want to back out of the room disappears, and a person who seems to have considerably more depth to them peeks through.

Turnbull’s private school priggishness (sp? again) already annoys the hell out of me. Still I guess he’ll serve to make Saint Kev, Patron Saint of National Togetherness, more tolerable.

Sounds like a repeat of John Hewson.

It was very sad to see Matt Price died this weekend.

I’d expect Maxine to know how to look good on camera, the crowd was working itself.

She’s certainly one to watch but she might find the day in day out grind of parliament to be a lot less fun than campaigning against the PM.

Oh, and correction.

Malcolm Turnbull? You heard it here second.

chester 3:57 pm 25 Nov 07

“Oh c’mon Chester,

I called that one last night.”

Ah well, props to you for saying it before his announcement today.

But do you think he’s really to blame? And waddabout the Maxine prediction? As long as she doesn’t let it go to her head, that woman shows potential to really work a crowd.

And that’s what counts, right? 😉

Joe Canberran 3:44 pm 25 Nov 07

Well the official announcement is here from the ABC

johnboy 3:16 pm 25 Nov 07

Oh c’mon Chester,

I called that one last night.

chester 2:44 pm 25 Nov 07

And Malcolm Turnbull will be the new opposition leader.

Remember folks, you heard it here first.

If I was really game, I’d add that Maxine McKew (sp?) will be Oz’s first female PM (or opposition leader at least). Whatever she was on last night, I want some! 😀

Let the debate begin!

PS I kinda feel a bit sorry for Costello. I think he’s better than he projects. After all, he’s big enough to see the writing on the wall and walk away. Under these circumstances, that’s pretty damn big.

PPS I’m opposed to compulsory voting so you can draw your own conclusions about my participation in the democratic process. LOL

Bob McMullan was on Channel 10’s coverage. Not sure if they were at the tally room, or in Sydney.

ant 1:11 pm 25 Nov 07

Where were the parties in Canberra last night? I imagine labor and liberal had them. Workies in Belconnen or Dickson for the Laborites?

Adza 12:48 pm 25 Nov 07

That’s right, it’s over… let’s get on with it!! lol
