Labor was in a minority government the last time they were in. Their hands were tied with many many things. They also dealt with the GFC and did it well.

I am always irritated when people declare "Oh my 1 vote won't make a difference...".
In this election, it seems absolutely possible that 1 vote could make a difference.
A South Australian, Liberal supporter, friend of mine just informed me: "Georganas' (Labor) lead over Matt Williams (Liberal) in Hindmarsh has been cut down from over 600 to just 8 votes today! Counting continues tomorrow."

Turnbull needs to stop making deals. He can't deliver stability with Katter. Katter is a strong Union supporter and the liberal party have been advised by Howard to go hard on the unions. Katter will walk from any deal.
Cowan is going back to labor tonight quite strongly.
There will be recounts galore. We won't know what the government looks like for another week I reckon. Meanwhile our credit rating goes down .......

As labor won't be getting enough seats to govern in their own right I think a labor/greens/independents coalition would be far worse for this county at the moment.

Anyway I don't need to make any arguments against labor to prove a point.. The landslide victory of the coalition in the last election speaks volumes about the disillusioned majority of voters in this country. How quickly people forget.. Now a lot of those voters are disillusioned with the liberals and I don't blame them at all, but I don't think they had enough of a chance to carry out long term policies, so it's hard to judge their performance.

And who's to say that those senators who leave won't be replaced with the same or worse. The fact that so many people voted for racists, bigots and morons means that there is a large chunk of Australian population that will continue voting in that way. And one of the worst things about discrimination is that it's infectious.
