And no I'm not suggesting we send NZ'ers back. When nearly 2% of the population live in Australia and contribute as they do we couldn't afford to.

In the second series of go back to where you came from that featured "famous" Australians, including Peter Reith who was the one responsible for the Pacific Solution actually went to Afghanistan and met a man who he sent back from Nauru. The man didn't know who Peter Reith was and that he was ultimately behind the decision to send him home but what this afghan man said was that maybe out of the 14 (can't remember exact number) but I think he was the only survivor, all others who had been sent back were killed. So they weren't deemed to be genuine in Australia's eyes but they probably were.

So it looks like the Libs have it. It's taken so long I'm not sure I even care! My only hope is that the close result makes both major parties take stock and listen to us more. And that maybe, just maybe, we might see the real Malcolm return as a result. You know, the one who believes in climate change, no children in detention, same sex marriage and had compassion.

Um...I met Malcolm a few years ago at a function and I conversed with him for a good hour.
An articulate man who was easy to talk to, I also found him to be very ambitious and rather ruthless in his summations. He struck me as a man that didn't really stand for anything but loved the smell of power. This is not a criticism but an observation and one that served me well when voting.
