1192 - Something has gone terribly wrong...

"Something has gone terrible wrong" 
LNP Party spokesperson, election night.

There is some comfort in knowing
That fear and greed and hate
Does not have the capacity
To win our main debate.

It's sad
But it was all they had.
And a pity
That they could just condemn.
But the end result was showing—
We're more mature than them.

For the international readers:
In Australia, the LNP are the repository of
right-wing religious extremists
and use the colour blue. 
Largely Republican in outlook.

The ALP is the left-wing progressives,
sometimes called Socialists
but a badge worn with pride here,
and use the colour red. 
Largely Democratic in outlook.

  1. And, which surprises me, it seems to have come as a shock to them.

  2. It's such a good acknowledgment: "We're more mature than them."
    The fear and hatred spread like wildfire; it's always better when it is controlled from becoming a part of the national agenda or discourse.
    Well penned! :-)

  3. To use our vote wisely is half the battle won!

  4. Thank heaven saner heads prevail there than is happening in North America. We now have a trump twin in the province of Ontario. The rise of the right wing globally is concerning.

  5. Let us hope people vote wisely this time around.. sigh..

  6. *Huge grin*. (I already did the jumping up and down and cheering.)

  7. something has finally gone right (and i don't mean the right-wing). :)

  8. I started celebrating this morning (via my National Public Radio station). I'm hoping that the same proves true for some of the madness going on in the US. Fingers crossed!

  9. Hurrah for end results
    "But the end result was showing—
    We're more mature than them."

    Happy Sunday


  10. Maybe there is a limit for how much people want to walk backwards into the future :-)

  11. You are in better shape than we are--we need cool and sane heads in office right now

  12. Love the lines: "It was sad/But it was all they had"

  13. I am happy to see fear and hate are losing ground world wide.

Take your time, look around,
There is lots to see.
