Having been shocked by the Canberra Times calling this election on Thursday morning with data that seemed fantastical it has been heartening to see the actual results of real people voting come out close to my predictions.
The disintegration of the Green vote is the driving dynamic of this election and the Liberals have achieved more of their objectives than a Napoleon would hope for in any given battle.
It is not close to over, and Labor could very well still form government.
But with 70% of the vote counted at this time and no one seriously looking at second preferences anyone who says they know how this is going to pan out in the final washup is just a fraud.
Certain people who think their opinions are more valuable than that of the electorate should take note.
