    Not that surprising that there were some mistakes made with sorting preferences. There were 16 candidates on the ballot and the people who do the counting on the night are just day labour, rather than the full time staff who do the double and triple checking afterwards.

    JOURNALIST: Prime minister, you’re on the bus tour. Why are you flying?

    PRIME MINISTER: Well the bus is going all the way up to Rockie and that’s where it was always planning to go. I mean, it’s a big state and I need to cover as much of it in four days as I can. So we were never planning to take the bus to Townsville, we’d always planned to take that last leg up to Townsville by plane because that was the most effective way to get there and to spend the most time there with people on the ground. I mean, these visits aren’t about sitting on a bus. They’re about actually engaging with small businesses and our supporters and the people of Queensland and listening to them.

    JOURNALIST: Then why have the bus?

    PRIME MINISTER: Because it gets me from A to B.

    JOURNALIST: Will you be taking the bus to Rockhampton from here?

    PRIME MINISTER: Yes. The bus will be going to Rockhampton from here. That’s right.

    JOURNALIST: With you on it?

    PRIME MINISTER: I’ve got to get there earlier than the bus tonight.

    JOURNALIST: So you will be flying to Rockhampton?

    PRIME MINISTER: I’ll get into Rockhampton tonight and I’ve got a programme tonight in Rockhampton and the bus can’t get me there quick enough so I’ve got to fly.

    JOURNALIST: So you’ll be flying to Rockhampton and the bus will catch up with you and then you’ll fly onto Townsville?

    PRIME MINISTER: I’ll be flying onto Townsville. And your point is what?

    JOURNALIST: I’m just interested in the point of the bus if you’re not on it.

    PRIME MINISTER: I am on it, I just got off it.

    JOURNALIST: But not onto Rockhampton or Townsville?

    PRIME MINISTER: Yeah well it’s a practical thing. I want to spend as much time on the ground with Queenslanders, and when I can be on the bus and go from place to place on the bus, that’s great. But I’m not going to sacrifice time with Queenslanders, listening to them and hearing them and talking to them about what’s important to them, just to satisfy the media’s interest in the timetable for the bus.

    I can certainly see the funny side of this, but it pisses me off so much to see how much dicking around they do in parliament, it's actually a fucking joke.
    We demand an investigation into the replacement of referee Rafshan Irmatov and his departure at a difficult time in such an important match. We ask for an examination of the grassland that was not suitable for the Syrian team, while Australian players seem to be wearing shoes that cling to the long grass, so we saw Syrian players fall during the game, while Australia's players are steady.

    Victorian election already called for Labor. Seems like the Vic Libs losing a number of seats, perhaps partly due to the leadership issues at Federal level.

    Labor picking up seats all over the eastern suburbs.

    Libs not running in inner city seats helped out a lot as well. Libs voted for Labor over the Greens and all but guaranteeing there wasn't going to be a minority government

    Not surprised Libs losing eastern suburbs as in many of these seats there were only 3 candidates; Libs, Labor and Greens. So there was basically no choice for people who are conservative but didn't want to vote Libs first due to backlash at federal level.

    Incredible.

    Nepean, Caulfield, Sandringham, Brighton and Hawthorn have been held by Labor for maybe a combined total of 3 years since Federation. All Labor tonight

    I’ll put a caveat on this, if the stamp duty rivers of gold dry up (which it seems like they will) I’m not sure where dans gonna bankroll his promises from.

    If he wheels a busted budget into 2021 it could be a different story.
