Over a few glasses of a ten dollar Merlot I watched the Rout of Labor last night and it was a great way to end a great day that started with me voting. What I found extraordinary was the fact that Labor were not even able to rouse more than one person to man the Dayboro booth and boy did I feel bad for that guy he was a man on the edge of tears in anticipation for the result that we all new was coming. Its people like him that I feel for today. those shattered ALP faithful who have been utterly destroyed by a result that could see less than ten Labor held seats in the new Parliament. As Ray will undoubtedly say this could be a bad thing but I think that for the first term at least we are going to see a government that understands and appreciates the value of humility . In any event due to the fact that we have only one house of state parliament here in the sunshine state any majority, even a one seat majority, gives the governemnt of the day unfettered power to run things as they please.
So as I watch the sunrise I am now more than ever happy to live in the sunshine state secure in the knowledge that the result here will send a shiver down the collective spine of Labor Party and maybe, just maybe, they will realise the folly of some of their mad policies (like the carbon tax), sadly I suspect that they will carry on regardless in which case I expect to be enjoying another few glasses of Merlot as the Gillard crew are as soundly trounced at the next Federal election.
Cheers are just not enough Comrades
