It is clear to me (at 9-05pm EAT) that the Labor Party has won the Federal election. A disappointing outcome for the Coalition and some particular disappointments for me are the probable loss of seats by Mal Brough and, of course, John Howard. Bright spots? I cannot see many. Julia Gillard has intelligence and will be a valuable part of the new government as Deputy Prime Minister. Nicole Cornes for Labor didn't make it which was some sort of relief.
But the cheering yobbos in the Tally Room supporting Maxine McKew kinda said it all.
That's it for me on this election.
