The Pencil Guy: Hourann's illogical blog

Yawn, another election over … almost

At the moment, Channel 7 says “still too early to call”, but the ABC is declaring a Gallop victory, and it looks to me like they’re right. Incumbent’s advantage stikes again.

In my district, Fran Logan is trouncing everyone else. Super-safe seats can be so boring sometimes … oh wait, make that all the time.

There’s not much TV coverage of the far more interesting matter of the referendum, but the very early results on the WAEC site say that it’s looking good for the no/no case. Perhaps the newspaper polls that reported a big swing from yes/yes opinions to no/no were right after all. Even I have to admit to having been swayed by advertising (and, alas, a bit of WA parochial sentiment) into voting yes/no.

Meanwhile, as cool as the ABC is, I have to say that seeing Kerry O’Brien host a program about WA is really weird, though it’s funny when he mis-pronounces names like Capel and Cheryl Edwardes (heh …). Reminds me of all the trouble that Easterners have reading out donations during 7’s Telethon.

P.S. Ricky, what are you doing randomly commenting on my friend’s blog? Crazy …

P.P.S. In case you were wondering, Host Day last Thursday was awesome. I ran into lots of cool peeps (including Kat and other-Cameron), and my group of first-years are all really cool as well. I even got thanked for not being as sucky as one of my mentees had been expecting. Woohoo!
