The writer should tighten up that first sentence.

Australians could go to bed on Saturday night without knowing the outcome of the federal election, with the nation facing its first hung parliament since World War II. with a hung parliament.

Oh well. At least they worked "gyrations" into the story.

I guess they don't need any mail-order enhancement ... oh, wait ... it says "election". Nevermind.

I'm sure they can't wait to pull their levers and vote for that.

Even Queensland? G0d shave the Queen!

No wonder Chad was dangling.

Well or until dead?

Bet a hung parliament could throw a helluva dinner party: 'Getcher nibbles ready: Everyone likes a good spread'

Have they counted the Florida votes yet?

I read that as erection. I need more coffee or sumthin.

Elections are what they have in Japan.

Harry Reid. 'Nuff said.

I firmly vote for hung.

I vote for hung, then drawn and quartered.

And then they can start on our Congress.

Hung parliament likely outcome of election

How does this tie in with the Australian Sex Party?

Hung implies well hung. This cannot be true, Australians have small weiners and are a bunch of wankers.

If your election lasts more than four days, consult your constitution. And if surging Greens persist, discontinue use of parliament immediately.

Now, now Mot. None of that Indian Ocean envy.

Years ago, I sat in the gallery of the Australian Senate listening to various Senators insulting or ignoring each other; it was all grandstanding, accomplishing nothing. A hung parliament would at least provide more entertaining histrionics.

"Indeed, it has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all those other forms that have been tried from time to time." -- Sir Winston Churchill, Hansard, November 11, 1947

I'm beginning to think Mot doesn't really care for Australia. I could be wrong.

@ Wes S. yepper. and the previous Congress and jus' for good measure the next one as well. maybe then we'll get one that doesn't suck. tho' the Ozzies might like that in a legislative body all things considerred.

Ozzies like Osborne? That would be a unique legislative body. Mumbling flashbacks with a bass line.
