In Australia Labor is the left wing party, and the Liberal National Party (the Liberals) is the right wing conservative party.

THANK EVERYTHING. Labor has won decisively

Eight years of Liberals nightmare over. I would have given up all hope for my state if they'd reelected that fuckwit as Premier again.

Even better, One Nation (which should really just call itself the Racist McRacist Party) looks like it's got nothing! Way to go, WA! One Nation and the Liberals screwed up doing a preferences deal - I don't think EITHER of their voting base were impressed with that *G*


So basically the Premier fucked over WA economy (which took talent cos we had a mining boom) and then planned to sell off state assets like Fremantle Port (FFS) and Western Power to reduce the debt. So there were massive protests about that, yay.

And then there was the the controversial Roe 8 project, which environmentalists have been fighting for years and finally the govt said fuck this shit and started tearing up the Beeliar Wetlands anyway, riding roughshod over regulations and not complying with their management plans. People have been chaining themselves to trees and getting arrested.
