    So counting is early, but looks like probably will be very close to a hung parliament.

    I don't think Labor will have the numbers to push through any negative gearing changes if it comes down to other parties. Could mean values continue to grow strongly post election with the doubt off the table for the next few years at least.

    But those are state issues anyway, and Mike Baird won in convincing margin.

    I think the federal liberals doe not have the same authority as the NSW state liberals had.

    Medicare scare campaign has worked for labor more than anything specially in western Sydney - this is what everyone was talking about where I voted this morning.

    That is the problem Liberal created themselves. They won in last election and then first budget they try to destroy Medicare. Medicare is one of the most important things that Australians value. You cannot blame Labor running the Medicare scare campaign.

    You may or may not remember, but the libs seemed to have it on a plate when they did the switcheroo, but they stuffed too many things up.

    I say they will govern, but won't be able to do whatever they want, which is preferable anyway, not all this BS talk they always come up with of a mandate, no one votes on just one issue/factor, so there is never a mandate for one thing.

    It is looking like they will almost certainly lose ground in the Senate. Xenephon has done well in the Senate and Hanson may pick up 2 seats in the Senate. Ol' Malc has demonstrated he doesn't play nice with non LibNats in the Senate. Under the new Senate, he will either have to suck it up and work with them or we will be back to the polls within 12 months.

    Should have gone to the polls before Christmas before everyone got cynical. That joint sitting of parliament looks like a fizzer now.

    All I know is that when I wake up in the morning, one or another group of bumbling incompetent idiots will be running the country, and we can look forward to 3 years of broken promises, disappointments and squabbling.

    Sympathies with ScoMo on ABC coverage, he's doing a great job of holding the line.

    "Mr Turnbull's plans to privatise Medicare will take us down the road of no return. Time is running out to Save Medicare."

    I got this text message at 1015am and source is Medicare. My wife got same message too. I wonder anyone also received this message?
    I don't think Medicare official will text this type of message to my phone but someone used Medicare identity to spread this txt.

    It was a terrible scare campaign, and quite unfair. But if it bit hard, it's because of the tone of the 2014 budget that tried to set out a path where free universal health care should gradually be made only available to those on welfare. Turnbull was still fighting the ghosts of the tone that budget set, and unfortunately people go with their gut for better or worse. Given we're headed for a likely hung parliament, i'm making the best of it and looking forward to the ensuing melodrama.

    Questions for the Libs after this election:

    1. Has the Turnbull experiment worked?

    2. Was the DD election a good idea?

    Could we have a new PM within 12 months?

    The difference is whether there is still negative gearing of existing homes, and halving of CGT, right? ;)
