Get in!

The Labor Party has won the Australian election. Although they were way ahead throughout the campaign, after 1992 I never assume anything is in the bag. Making the result even better is the fact that Howard looks like he has lost his seat. The Liberal government has systematically attacked the unions in Australia and workplace rights generally, so no surprise to see, for example, the TUC calling on expats to turf them out.

Good riddance.

Good news - but not great news. We'll have to wait to see how far Rudd can be pushed on restoring workers' rights...
