Thanks guys It's been fun!

Just got back from an after party for my local member who won his seat by 60%. He's a legend who has helped me out during two very tricky aviation related matters, the proposed closure of Jandakot Airport and an incident during CHOGM which took 19 months to get people from Albanese's department to admit they totally ****ed it up when they sent an FA/18 skygod who didn't know ADIZ procedures after me!

He knows I'll be making sure they stick to this, especially the third bullet point.

The Coalition?s plan for Aviation | Liberal Party of Australia

Now, time to get back to work!

Well I, for one, am looking forward to our third world infrastructure, 19th century social policies and a departure from proven, effective economic principals. Should be good for a laugh.

Of course the real winner tonight was Rupert Murdoch, who bought himself a Prime Minister.

It didn't take long for them to come creeping out of the woodwork.

It's bit like marsh gas. Sits on the bottom putrifying for a while and then belches to surface poisoning the atmosphere at inappropriate moments.

But who really cares......Australia is now rid of the most dysfunctional mob of shysters that (apart from Whitlam's trend setting attempt) has ever been this country's misfortune to have.

Kodachrome ..... Oh dear it didn't take long did it?
You obviously haven't been paying attention for the past 6 years.

Nah don't be rude, the Bruce is a great highway. Who needs emergency stopping lanes, divided motorway and overtaking lanes that give enough space to overtake without accelerating to 140 kmph (not that anyone would do that )? That's for European/Yank wimps! Us big tough Queenslanders should be grateful that the main artery for the second biggest state is sealed, what a bunch of wimps for demanding anything better! It's a big country ya know....sit down, keep driving and don't make a single error of judgement, or your family will be buying one of those little crosses that pepper the trip north/south .

Anyone would think the joint was trying to attract tourists or something.

EDIT: gotta say, now the battle's lost and won... I didn't like the partisan headlines in the Courier Mail, and I won't be buying it again. I realise papers take an editorial POV and I have no problem with that, within reason. However, I primarily buy a paper for the news, not the editorial. IMO the Courier stepped well past the marker points of fair comment in the last election. They can keep doing that with other people's $1.20, but they won't get mine.

Have a look at the infrastructure at our commonwealth airports after Keating's bright idea to flog off the leases so property developers could use them as land banks and turn the bush around them into concrete jungles with a stroke of Garrett's pen.

And remember how Gillard pork barrelled Mellissa Parke's electorate, which includes Jandakot Airport, with 10mil for a practice area for the Fremantle Dockers....more than the airport was sold off for....when an airport her beloved Albo is landlord for that could really benefit from 10 mil rather than squeezing it out of the tenants is just across the freeway.



At least Gillard knew when she was beaten and was graceful in defeat instead of making a speech that would have been more suitable for The Oscars.

The woman is smoking, but what is it? A tipped cigar? She's not drawing back. She might be a once in a blue moon cigar smoker. In which case she should remove the label.

First tip Tony, sack the whole ABC staff, the interview they are doing with Julie Bishop at the moment is so so left wing, it's like watching Pravda International.

I suppose you think News Ltd is unbiased and impartial.

Depends on the date. In case you forgot the Murdoch press propelled Krudd the Dud into power in 2007. But don't let facts get in the way of your current deep depression kods

Sorry I'm a little bit late, but I want to congratulate Australians for this election.

You were voting for your own government, but your rejection of the left wing inspires us all. Thanks for that, and to Tony and the Libs, Godspeed!

I've come to the conclusion that the reason Rudd's (non) concession speech was so.... well, 'curious' is the only word that comes to mind... is that he's so unbelievably arrogant and out of touch that he'd prepared only a victory speech, so he went with that and just ad-libbed in a few areas where he acknowledged he'd lost.

I find myself screaming at the radio when I hear Michelle Rowlands crowing about how fantastic she and team are to have increased the Labor vote by 3% in her electorate. Michelle... face it... it had nothing to do with how fantastic you or your team are, but instead, EVERYTHING to do with the hapless idiot the Libs put in against you. When I saw last night that Mr Diaz has lost, I (and I strongly suspect, every man and woman at Liberal Party HQ), was releived. He would have been a huge embarrassment had he got in -a bit like Edward Heath Mark 2, a.k.a. Kevin Rudd, who will be like the ghost of Christmas Past (or a far better analogy, like dead prawns left in the curtain rods by the outgoing tenants) if he remains on the Labor back benches.

What's the bet he'll soon develop a medical condition that will 'require' him to 'unwillingly' retire due to pressing health reasons? I'll bet there are a lot of people in the Labor heirachy hoping against hope that that is true.

Was I the only one who thought Kevni was bunging on his Gough Whitlam voice a few times during that curious speech? You can bet the Labor Luvvies among our MSM will already be re-writing the history of the last six years as they try to turn him into another Gough-like Labor hero.

Sarah TwoDads. Did she survive?

Andu

In one (another) elec where the Labour person won, I think it was Eden Monaro
- Mike Kelly, he admitted that it was more to do with the person he was against was just NOT the right person and over 15 months, people realised that.
