I'd have to agree with you my friend.
More so for the lack of democracy in my opinion in the final result than the winner.
The Liberals got more of the primary vote which should count for something.
This preferential voting system we have is absolute crap and should be reformed.
We now have a minority Labour-Green coalition government who doesnt have the ability to properly govern...you watch, we will be back at the polls
within 18 months and the liberals will win.
The huge swing to the liberal party in this election shows the discontent towards the labour party. Ive been a labour voter all my life but they
really messed everything up the last 3 years, so much so that I jumped over the fence to the other side.
Now, this extreme left wing coalition will bring in the Carbon Tax......you watch the cost of living go up.....
Watch the Greens influence in closing up the state forests to recreational activities, they already said they will close coastal areas to fishing.
Watch Gun laws get even tighter, like they arent tight enough already.
Watch the ban on hunting pests come about.
If it was labour by itself then I wouldnt be soo upset, upset but not so much, but this coalition with the Greens is a total reciper for disaster!
Time will tell.
