10% swing, MAYO now a marginal seat

dammit, the Greens are 3000 votes short after the federal by-election was held in my seat of Mayo this weekend. Alexander Downers old seat, never lost by the Libeals since the creation of the electoral zone, has sufferred a huge swing of 10% now 11% against Liberal candidate Jamie Briggs, creator of 'workchoices' fame (but he's still claiming victory). Hes a born to rule arrogant twat who says the swing (unheard of in this blue ribbon electorate) is still a good result. Nobody in Mayo , even the die-hard Libs, were happy with the Liberal party handing this school boy a plum job for life. He drives a souped up Black Commodore with spoiler and mags and likes to play intimidating road games with The Green's party supporters. Not Happy Jan

Another nob in politics, just what we need. I hope the Greens gain some seats in the lower house next election, or the Senate for that matter. This two party system has gone on far too long.
