Australia Went To The Polls

And elected the least worst candidate.

Probably.

Uh, that's Tony Abbott.

Liberal.  That is, conservative.

Only loss is that the National Broadband Network will be significantly scaled back under the new government.  Given that the Labor government had so far made a total mess of it anyway, and were unthinking statists on key issues such as privacy, freedom of speech, transparency, and due process, it's a trade-off I'm willing to make.

I don't know that this lot will be significantly better, just that we're well rid of the last lot.

Oh, and he does annoy all the right people, but then, he kind of annoys me too.  So that's a wash.

1 It's nice to see someone in the world using the word "Liberal" correctly. (Unlike the US, where it's used as a synonym for "socialist".)
