The independents have decided and we will have another ALP term of government. Not that unexpected given the noises coming from the independents in recent days. I don’t think the ALP deserved another shot but now that they have one I hope they restrain themselves and deliver effectively. The early headlines are not so good. They suggest that the ALP essentially bought off the independents with lots of cash for the bush. Hopefully this isn’t from new borrowing or taxes and is merely a shift in spending priorities. I’m sure there will be plenty of analysis over the coming days and weeks.
Feel free to share your thoughts. Will Julia be better than Kevin? What will the Greens do with their new found position of influence?
