Oof, that's so bad. The impact of climate change has the potential to make WWII look like a petty skirmish.

New Labor govt in South Australia, privatisation party voted out after a single term. Democracy sausage in full effect.

Election Day tomorrow. Please gods old and new, let these evil pricks be cast out of office and into the outer darkness, never to return.

Centre-left Labor win, smaller majority than expected. Lotta people predicting a landslide, but who knows in the world of twitter bubbles. Wipeout, or at least a big hit, to the current senior leadership of the Liberal party. A small but significant influx of educated middle-class white women running as independents knocking off incumbent government MPs in some important seats, and everyone will rave about this being a victory for leftie progressive values until they wake up to the fact that the new MPs are educated middle-class white women, not woke activists. There'll be horror at a far greater vote for antivax antiestablishment antijewishnewworldorder candidates than expected. Greens will underperform and claim it as a moral victory.

But as long as we wake up on Sunday to a new government and Anthony Albanese as Prime Minister, I'll take it as a win for the forces of good. Such as they are in Australia.

Former (and Australia's first female) PM Julia Gillard came out of anonymous civilian life and has done some campaigning for Labor in Adelaide this week, and all it's done is make everyone else look shit by comparison. Can we vote to get her back against her will?

She was a terrible PM...and it's taken the nation about 5 years to stop including a c in the word negotiating.

She was fucking great you fuck!

So far my prediction holding… Labor ahead 2PP but weaker than polling suggested.

Well it's rare that NZ, the US, and Australia all have progressive leadership. Altho the US only barely counts.

Is anyone else searching Pauline Hanson every five minutes to see if she's lost her seat?

😅

I'm super glad that no Clive Palmer candidates got up, and Craig Kelly lost his seat.

Labor inching closer to an outright majority; if they fall short by 1 seat, parachuting Keneally into Fowler to fail is going to seem pretty damn stupid.

That was next level stupid....glad the voters saw through this. Putting a northern beaches candidate in to that kind of electorate was never going to play well.

New PM makes a secular affirmation rather than swearing an oath on Teh Bible.

Not worried tbh, I'm sure the party includes at least one cleric with a high level turn undead ability.
