As long as Steve Fielding doesn't hold the balance of power, all will be well.
I did that (***) in my last post because your last post (from the "new posts" link) didn't appear on the thread unless there was another post after it.
I know, because I posted to say your post was missing. Only to have your post appear after my (last) post! So I deleted mine because it was no longer necessary. THEN yours wasn't there again!
I swear I'm not making this up! (Though it sounds quite crazy, I know.)
Yes, indeed, he is. The one with the balance of power in the senate. In fact there's a strong theory that the broadband filter was the price of his support in the senate. Seems they may have successfully bluffed him along until now: election time, and they mat not need his vote after.
And yeah, msolga is still adjusting to the new meds I think.
You're making this up, you Crazy Cat!
Antony Green's Analysis:
The deal done between Labor and several other groups to protect its third candidate Jacinta Collins has backfired badly. Despite polling only 0.13 of a quota, Family First harvest preferences from numerous groups including the Progressive Alliance, the Christian Democrats, the Aged and Disability Pensioners Party, Non-Custodial Parents Party, One Nation, Liberals for Forests, the Australian Democrats, the DLP and the surplus from the Coalition. By this stage, Family First has passed the third Labor candidate, Family First's Steven Fielding then easily wining the final vacancy on Labor preferences.
