I have a horrible feeling the Libs will get in again, but am hoping there are enough Greens and Independents in the Senate to keep them in line.

What do you think the outcome will be?

Unfortunately I think you are right, and yep hope there is enough variety in the Senate so all the crazy ideas the libs have don't get through.

I reckon it will be like brexit, as in everyone thinks Libs will win but labour actually will.

I think the real winner tonight will be democracy.

Liberals with a reduced majority. More crossbenchers in the senate.

It's going to be very hard for coalition not to win. I think you are right unfortunately.

Ouch.

OK, the winner tonight will be rich people who can afford their own healthcare and $100,000 degrees.

I could not loathe the coalition more HOWEVER I would hate to see Labor win this election.

This is because I also loathe Shorten, I find him very disingenuous, plus I feel Labour aren't quite tight enough to lead yet.

I think (hope!) Labor lose, Shorten gets ousted, the party is returned to the Labor left, Plibersek, and Wong become the parties leader and deputy, and they have a huge win in 2019 and run the country for a decade or more, long enough for some real and sorely needed health and education reforms.

I also believe (hope!) that there are a stack of greens and independents returned that make Malcs life hell so nothing too hideous gets through in the 3 years the coalition have left.

LIbs will win the lower house with reduced majority.  Hopefully a few greens / independents / minor parties will get seats.

Senate is going to be feral :yes: :rofl:

LNP

Senate is going to end up fairly unworkable I'm thinking.

#17 .Jerry.

Posted 02 July 2016 - 06:55 PM

I can't bear to watch as I think the Libs will easily get back in. :(

#18 purplekitty

Posted 02 July 2016 - 06:56 PM

I think Labor may claw back some seats but the LNP will win.

The Senate I have no idea.
It could be a cluster****.

#19 Madeline's Mum

Posted 02 July 2016 - 06:57 PM

As much as I hate to say it I think Liberals will win but it will be one hell of a volatile senate.

I hope both Barnaby and Abbott loose their seats. And I hope the Abbott loving crook who from my electorate looses his too.

Libs in the House. So they will retain govt.

Senate? Anyone's guess.

That's would be lovely, but unfortunately I'm not holding out much hope :(

Anyone arguing for an LNP government because Shorten fails their unrealistic expectation policy needs a cranium slapping.

Definitely the LNP.  

But I will call the 2019 election for the Labor party.
