A post-election piece at New Matilda

Having had apiece published at New Matilda just before election day, I thought I’d follow it up with a post-election one which you can also read at their site.  I’d be looking a lot smarter now if I’d just stuck with my original suggestion when the election was announced that Labor would lose about 9 seats, rather than assuming as the campaign went that all the pundits calls about a line-ball outcome were right.  However, unlike many of the people now treating the result as a disaster for the LNP, my general feeling is they did reasonably well overall, despite falling short in one or two seats they could reasonably have been expected to win. If the LNP manages to stay reasonably united behind a bearable leader, they are quite well placed for the next state election, especially if Labor makes any major mis-steps.
