It’s the end of the world apparently.
Australia’s election saw conservatives soar to the top as voters rejected the liberals talking points on climate change and raising taxes. Gee, you mean people have more concerns about money in the pockets and providing for their families.
Just like in America, liberals cannot believe voters would do this and gone into a meltdown.
FASCISM IS COMING TO AUSTRALIA! EHRMAHGERD!!!
Australia’s become more fascist now after the election. Supporting innocent refugees in Manus and Nauru also means supporting Australian people damaged by this gov. When they destroy refugees they’ll knock on your doors. It is the reality of a right wing gov.

Three long years? Good Lord.

Another “woke” child? I highly doubt that. Holy cow the hyperbole.
My daughter’s reaction to the news of the Australian election: Goodbye ABC, goodbye Great Barrier Reef, goodbye public services, goodbye renewable energy, goodbye public health, goodbye public education and goodbye stunning river systems.

You reject climate change? You’re responsible for the deaths!
Scottie, give me maximum hyperbole!

How dare you think for yourself?
Election results like Australia, Brexit, the US, make it difficult to parse the world we live in. I’m not berated by people every time I walk down a street, in any country really, but then one wonders, what are those people thinking? #ausvotes

It’s Murdoch’s fault!
In all the election commentary last night, not a single word on the elephant in the room: Murdoch, with 70% control of Australia’s print media,ran the single most biased campaign in Australian political history. Reason for the silence? People are in fear of Murdoch’s power.

How dare you ignore climate change!
The Australian election results are horrifying. We're on the brink of climate catastrophe. Australia is one of the top carbon emitters per capita in the world. The new leader has no climate change policy, and walked into parliament waving a chunk of coal. Not even kidding. pic.twitter.com/IbAIF8X6vc

Oh look. The usual accusations against conservatives.
Its not the fact the LNP won that we are upset about.
Its the fact that this election the LNP were so proudly open about their cruelty, racism, bigotry, and hate.
And Australia embraced it with a smile.
And now we know for fact that we aren't safe.#Auspol

Australians are dumb, mean-spirited and greedy. Accept it.

You caused premiums to go up!
There you go Australia. One day after the election Medibank shares jump 11% because their ability to charge everybody higher premiums is not going to change.
And of course their shareholders celebrate because Medibank can make bigger profits.
So costs up, no changes to wages.
