The angles on this election are endless and will take time to settle.
All I want to add today is the basic relief that Australia has rejected the bottom of the barrel.
The Morrison Government was, by any objective measure, a disgrace. It had no behavioral standards, was the most corrupt in modern times, had no policy process and was dedicated wholly to the business of re-electing itself so it could keep running its Parliament House brothel.
Second, the MSM was dedicated to Morrison’s re-election. The principal national mastheads at Nine and Murdoch allowed a twisted PM to say and do anything while labeling every utterance of the opposition a “gaffe”. The election result is equally a rejection of its collapse of professional standards.
We have reached the bottom in the decline and fall of Canberra politics and thank god it is over.
