I am sitting here crying, I am so, so fucking happy. My faith in this country has been restored beyond belief tonight; watching the election count, the results showing strong Labour preferences. Seeing electorates that were previous Liberal seats changing to Labour, hearing the cheers from the people outside the tally room, cheering for a new government. John Howard, our now FORMER Prime Minister may even lose his seat in the House of Representatives - his electorate is currently on the fence, swinging towards a possible Labour hold instead of Liberal for the first time EVER. This would be only the second time in Australia's history that a Prime Minister has not just lost government control, but also his own seat in the House of Representatives.
John Howard has been so cocky, arrogant, and dismissive of ordinary Australians, not just throughout this election campaign, but for the last several years. To see him lose government AND his own seat is sweet, sweet victory.
OMFG. I am so incredibly happy right now. I am so proud of this country, so proud for doing the right thing.
