Predictable Election "Result"
It seems like we have been given the election result most fitting to the campaigns of both of major parties.
Labor and the Coalition spent most of their time and resources telling us not to vote for the other party. So it seems we followed advice from both of them and either voted for someone else (Greens or Independents) or didn't vote at all (highest informal vote on record).
Maybe when the next election comes around one or both of the parties might be able to give us reason to vote FOR THEM instead of reasons not to vote for the others.
Also, they might consider keeping true to those reasons by fulfilling their promises instead of backing out when the going gets a bit tough.
