This must reflect the events of the WA election this weekend. But was what happened really ‘new’ information? The Barnett government was expected to return – except Darren Brown, but in fairness to him at least he had a good story to back up his prediction.
What is new information is that people have been happy to sheet home responsibility to Gillard’s policies.
Another thing that I thought quite interesting was Stephen Smith talking about swings and roundabouts during the Saturday night coverage. He said something along the lines that the ALP was able to form government at the federal level with only three seats from WA. I interpreted that as him saying that WA doesn’t really matter at a federal level. At least it doesn’t really matter to the ALP. I hope the footage of that statement reappears in election advertising come September.
