Queensland election landslide
Queensland has made history yesterday. This result will most likely cause big new trouble for Gillard. The Labor Party is going to be looking afresh for a new challenger, but I can't see anybody there that is near as able as Julia. It was very pleasing to me to see my prediction come true regarding the Greens. I wrote on here on more than one occasion that the Greens had topped out at the 2010 Federal Election where they achieved 11.5% of the vote. Yesterday effort of 7.5% means a loss of over 30% of their support
With Labor left with an embarassing 7 or 8 Seats, I hope that Newman is as good a Premier as he was a Mayor or Queensland, with no Upper House is in big trouble. He will have a big problem with 75 or 76 newly elected members especially as he is a lot like Rudd & Turnbull in style.
