Does Australia Have A Government Yet, Again

No Probably.



Currently the major parties are split 68/67, with 10 seats still undecided, and needing 76 to form a government.  There are also 5 independents who will obviously be getting sweet-talked to death right now.

Sadly, the site from 2010 now seems to belong to a Chinese bus company.

Update: Official but not final results have the Liberal (i.e. conservative) Party returned with a much reduced majority, down from 90:55 to 76:69.  One seat has not yet been declared, but that can't affect the overall outcome.

4 Labour leader Bill Shorten conceded, so it appears you get a slightly narcissistic and far less rich version of Donald Trump as Prime Minister.  Which is better than having to deal with President Hillary for four years.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
