Where are your thoughts on the outcome? :)
I think it will actually suit the Coalition to be in opposition because a Green-Labor alliance will drive Labor left-wing and put people off Labor. (Pro-Green people will obviously see that direction as a good thing though.) I was disappointed by Wilkie not getting the extra money for RHH. I think he had a score to settle with the Coalition for the way they bagged him out after the whistle blowing about the WMD and Iraq. But he might redeem himself by getting some more good deals for Denison. (It's not pork barreling if it happens in your own electorate!)
Wilkie was interviewed on ABC radio's PM and he said it definitely wasn't because of issues 7.5 years ago. Rather that he said he couldn't see where the Coalition could get the money from, which was insightful given the almost scandalousness Coalition costings that the Treasury finally got to check.
They look like the cats that got the cream - as indeed they are! The Labor Party has a way better housing policy which is the thing that affects me most personally (or at least professionally) and we may at last get our ETS or equivalent with a Labor/Green senate which I certainly think is a good thing although some of your readers may disagree.
Smug as a bug in a rug.
