Australia rejected toxic politics which had become oppressive. It was a victory for change. It is also likely the new PM will not be restricted by minority government…in other words a majority government is possible.
Murdoch media campaigned unashamedly for an extremist conservative govt in Australia and the public not only did not listen to them but there’s an active dislike here of such blatant bias. Here, post election, they’re trying but not succeeding, to make up ground. I’d like to see real government inquiry into the impact of media monopolies in Australia.
We won…loud mouth populism has been defeated in Australia. Morrison and the conservatives who pushed their moderates out in favour of extremism has been thrashed and decimated. The former treasurer even lost his seat to an independent female candidate, whose platform was primarily climate change action. Labor will either form majority govt or minority with the help of the Greens Party and women independents. The Conservative party in shambles. There’s a lesson for the GQP in the US. Purple and blue waves are coming…
Lunch today at the good old cafe in Temora NSW. Steak sandwich with the lot for Eric and I had a cheeseburger. These cafes remind me of my youth, growing up in the country. And a cappuccino of course. #roadtrip#tarotontheroad
