So a minority government with a minority of the votes, but a working majority in the Parliament, has been returned in South Australia.
This is how an op-ed in The Australian describes what has happened:
[Independent MP Geoff] Brock has disregarded the views of his electorate, the majority of the stakeholder groups he consulted, and the views of regional South Australia in backing Labor.
In a representative democracy that is how things can work out.
Rural voters need to get with the program; if they want a Liberal government, they need to vote for Liberal candidates.
