Well I called it some months ago, but it doesn’t make the victory any less sweet. Thank you to all those who have contacted me tonight and kept me abridge of the news on the election and to all those who celebrated with me, the sweetest win of all. It’s been more than 20 years since I’ve been as confident of a victory to the ALP and it’s been about as long since I’ve been as optimistic about the policies for the future of our great country. Of course I hadn’t dared to hope that Bennelong would be won, but dear God – it looks like it is!
Congrats to Kevin Rudd and his team and let’s hope that Australia can move forward from this result and produce a better, fairer future for our country.
