    Easily. At least another 50 million.

    Now if you were a paid-up Silver Stackers member you'd be able to view the enlightened discussion happening over here. Well, I'll admit that at this stage it's a touch one way.

    It is a lot of years, but don't worry, you're not likely to see them out personally.

    Especially if you don't do us all and favour and give up on the bold. It hurts. ;)

    Well I have a tendency to ignore stuff in bold (and coloured oversized capitals too). So maybe it is self-defeating. Just saying. :)

    This is worth a read:

    https://quillette.com/2019/05/20/at...the-lefts-empathy-deficit-came-home-to-roost/

    What the election actually shows us is that the so-called quiet Australians, whether they are tradies (to use the Australian term) in Penrith, retirees in Bundaberg, or small business owners in Newcastle, are tired of incessant scolding from their purported superiors. Condescension isn’t a good look for a political movement.

    Taking stock of real voters’ needs would require elites to exhibit a spirit of empathic understanding—such as by way of acknowledging that blue-collar workers have good reason to vote down parties whose policies would destroy blue-collar jobs; or that legal immigrants might oppose opening up a nation’s border to migrants who arrive illegally. More broadly, the modern progressive left has lost touch with the fact that what ordinary people want from their government is a spirit of respect, dignity and hope for the future. While the fetish for hectoring and moral puritanism has become popular in rarefied corners of arts and academia, it is deeply off-putting to voters whose sense of self extends beyond cultish ideological tribalism.​

    Yep, Lehmann is usually pretty spot on.

    I live in one of those electorates in Qld she talks about, you could taste the hatred of the ALP (our own Deputy Premier is even worse mind you - an inner city radical greenie) held by the voters here. Labor wanted to kill our jobs, our industries, our towns, our cities and our future. They wanted to model our lives after their own. So we handed the ALP a swing against them of over 13%. I hope we never see them again.

    Probably symbolic that the tree is dead now.

    Who actually won?

    ANALYSIS

    We are pretty sure we know what happened on Saturday night, but a glance at the raw voting figures might confound your certainties.

    It would reveal losers were actually top performers, and top performers went nowhere.

    The Liberals benefited from a massive surge of voters. Right?

    Not really. The Liberal first preference tally actually fell by close to 1 per cent, according to Australian Electoral Commission counts posted at midday.

    The Liberal vote was 3,293,099, a 0.91 per cent fall from the 2016 level. It’s barely moved over two years, and certainly was not a flood of support.

    The Liberal first preference tally actually fell by close to 1 per cent, according to Australian Electoral Commission counts posted at midday.

    So it must have been a Labor decline that did it in. Not so. Labor’s first preference vote fell even less than the Liberals’. The ALP had 4,016,676 primary votes, a drop of 0.87 per cent from 2016.

    The lesson, as in all modern elections, is not how many votes a party gets, but where they are cast. The Liberals won 27.76 per cent of the primary vote and Labor 33.86 per cent. But we know who won the election.

    For example, Labor supporters would have been chocking the ballot boxes in inner city electorates, but that predominance of voters changed nothing. The ALP was almost always going to win those seats.

    Just ask the Greens.

    The Greens collected 10.04 per cent of the first preference vote, a total of 1,190,776. The Nationals had 4.89 per cent, or 579,457.

    But the Nationals have won 10 seats and the Greens one. It depends where the votes land.

    Self-indulgent left-wing journos looking for any story because the reality of the event doesn’t sit well with their plan for the world.

    leftsplain definition: the act of intentionally disregarding facts and outcomes in order to spread propaganda according to the church of social justice.

    "The Federal Election Is Over - What Next?"

    Continue keeping them freeloader boats out! Reports said many boats were waiting to see if leftist labor wins so they can then depart. Continue giving all them freeloader scums nothing and they will expect nothing. Send them a clear message that freeloader BS refugees not welcome in Oz.
