In the end a minority Labor government was created. This has made a lot of people who barrack for the other team very angry and been widely portrayed by News Ltd as a bad move. A lot of columnists are miserable, even the ones with digital watches, and are increasingly of the opinion that we’ve all made a big mistake in holding elections in the first place, if they’re going to come up with the wrong result. (Democracy, n. Going back to the polls until the Liberal Party wins.)
To be honest, it’s been somewhat amusing already, watching the beginning of what Pollytics calls “The Great Unhinging“. There’s already a collection of fatuous lines about the result that I’m heartily sick of, and they’re just getting warmed up.
What are the most outrageous bits of spin – from either side – that you’ve seen so far on what happened yesterday, and what’s going to happen next?
