ScoMo (Prime Minister Scott Morison) won an outstanding victory on 18th May. The Australian Labor Party are shell-shocked, but they were totally out=played by ScoMo’s superb delivery of his strategy.

A Melbourne voter, to the Sydney Morning Herald, summed it up nicely, saying: “I’m young, I voted Liberal, and I’m not a bigot – So, to every Greens or Labor or other minor party supporter who feels saddened or disenfranchised by the Saturday election, these facts are for you. We who voted for the Coalition did not vote out of fear, nor naivety, bigotry or anger. Rather, we voted with our hearts for a party that will do the right thing on social issues, but which can also lead a country through a challenging time economically.”

This should be a wake-up call for Jacinda Ardern – promising envy taxes and unrealistic climate actions (her so-called “nuclear moments”) will ultimately burn your support base. Voters need confidence that you can manage the economy, because that is the only way that you can fund social and environmental change – not “fairy-dust”.
