…And the winner is…

Well, so that was it – Kevin Rudd and the Australian Labor Party have officially won the elections (no surprise, no surprise) – it was a narrow sweeping victory (updated after votes and seat count were finalised). Regardless, from where I am now (not in Australia), the news came as a whimper; slightly disappointing.

Will the Labor win be affecting you much, or do you think it will mostly be ‘life as usual’? I reckon it will likely be the latter for most of us.

    It wasn’t quite a Ruddslide but I wouldn’t say it was narrow — ABC is projecting 86 seats for Labor, which is a clear and comfortable victory (given that only 76 were needed). And I can say there was no sense of disappointment at the election party I attended!

    Ninemsn reported 46.73% to 53.27% (Coalition vs Labor), but I guess if you do account Labor 72 seats over Liberal’s 39 seats, it’s quite a comfortable victory they had.

    I wish I was at your election party, Brett. Being away sucks noodles.
