Australian Election Final Result: Fairness & Equity 0 Privilege & Entitlement 1. Away Win

Against all the opinion polls for three years, the chaotic federal government was re-elected.  The ‘climate election’ was won by a party with no climate policy, one favouring coal mining.  People voted for promised, far-off personal tax cuts, for no income redistribution via reductions in negative gearing and franking credits and against higher wages for the least well off.  People voted for the short-term, for themselves.  The ‘climate emergency’ apparently doesn’t matter.

How sad.  What type of country do we have here?  What will our grandchildren say when they look back on this decision and see what we have condemned them to, when we had a chance to do the right thing?
