Mopping up operations

Late counting adds some extra grunt to the backlash against the Liberals in wealthy city seats, slightly reducing the size of their expected winning margin on the national two-party vote.

The Australian Electoral Commission is now conducting Coalition-versus-Labor preference counts in seats where its indicative preference counts included minor party or independent candidates – or, if you want to stay on top of the AEC’s own jargon in these matters, two-party preferred counts in non-classic contests.

Such counts are complete in the seven seats listed below; 94% complete in Warringah, where the current count records a 7.4% swing to Labor, 78% complete in New England, where there is a 1.2% swing to the Coalition; at a very early stage in Clark (formerly Denison, held by Andrew Wilkie); and have yet to commence in Farrer, Indi, Mayo and Melbourne. Labor have received unexpectedly large shares of preferences from the independent candidates in Kooyong, Warringah and Wentworth, to the extent that Kevin Bonham now reckons the final national two-party preferred vote will be more like 51.5-48.5 in favour of the Coalition than the 52-48 projected by most earlier estimates.

We also have the first completed Senate count, from the Northern Territory. This isn’t interesting in and of itself, since the result there was always going to be one seat each for Labor and the Country Liberals. However, since it comes with the publication of the full data file accounting for the preference order of every ballot paper, it does provide us with the first hard data we have on how each party’s preferences flowed. From this I can offer the seemingly surprising finding that 57% of United Australia Party voters gave Labor preferences ahead of the Country Liberals compared with only 37% for vice-versa, with the remainder going to neither.

Lest we be too quick to abandon earlier assessments of how UAP preferences were behaving, this was almost certainly a consequence of a ballot paper that had the UAP in column A, Labor in column B and the Country Liberals in column C. While not that many UAP votes would have been donkey votes as normally understood, there seems little doubt that they attracted a lot of support from blasé voters who weren’t much fussed how they dispensed with preferences two through six. There also appears to have been a surprisingly weak 72% flow of Greens preferences to Labor, compared with 25% to the Country Liberals. It remains to be seen if this will prove to be another territorian peculiarity – my money is on yes.

Note also that there’s a post below this one dealing with various matters in state politics in Western Australia.

  1. The ALP should institute party-wide Shorten aversion therapy sessions. I think something like out of A CLockwork Orange would do the trick. Any remaining Shortenites should be forced marched into the desert, Burke & Wills style.

  2. nath @ #1843 Sunday, June 16th, 2019 – 2:48 pm

    Asha is right to be optimistic. The election just enabled the status quo pretty much. They are in a much better position than after 2004 and now with the Shorten barnacle removed it should fare better. A big question will be though, will the Australian public want Shorten as a minister. Never underestimate the Australian publics’ dislike of the scheming Shorten. He should leave Parliament, but where else can he earn a quid? It’s not like he can go back to rorting mushroom pickers again.

    Someone put the broken record by Embittered nath, on again. 😐

  3. “The existence of such a Coalition and such close military support would presumably provide the framework within which to create a trigger for a general US military attack on Iran.”

    Trump is being pretty obvious really. He’s out to create skeer and fear in the run up to his re-election bid.

    Mexico (close to home), North Korea and Iran so that he can put his boy toys on display and be “shoulder to shoulder” with Netanyahu’s nuttbaggers in Israel. Its dangerous “trumped up” bullshit.

  4. There is nothing lefty about investing in public housing and opposing an increase in newstart is bad policy but neither major party is serious about raising it.

    Tighter financial and credit conditions will result in less economic activity.

    And looser will result in a spectacular crash just as soon as interest rates start going back up and everyone who went into a mortgage to buy some of Australia’s ludicrously overpriced real estate finds they can no longer afford their loan repayments.

    Every scenario results in guaranteed disaster! 🙂

  7. The news of reports of the Iranian attack on the US Reaper has now reached Australia.

    The SA7 attack just prior to the latest tanker attack, is supposed by the US to:

    (1) have been targetted at the Reaper and to have missed the Reaper by around a 1000 meters.
    (2) to have been intended to disrupt surveillance of the tanker.
    (3) to have been fired by someone acting under direct orders from the Iranian Government.

    There are thousands of these SA7-style manpads floating around on the black market – including lots freed up when government forces in Syria and Iraq lost control of weapons dumps. They are operable by one or two people. They can be carried around in your family sedan. They cost around $60-$80 thousand each on the black market. A Houthi rebel elsewhere in the Yemen recently shot down a $15 million Reaper with some SA7 equivalent.

    Bludgers with something of a memory will recall the proud role of the US in providing Stingers to Afghan freedom fighters. These proved to be quite important because the Stingers drastically reduced the military advantage of Russian air power in their failed decade long war to conquer Afghanistan. The US even made a hero movie about this. The sting in this tail? Stingers and SA7s are more or less equivalents.

    How cheap and how pleasing for Vlad to send, say, five thousand of the latest and most capable of these to Iran for free or on tick, against Iranian gas exports to Russia? Or for the Iranians to manufacture them themselves?

    This has now become grist to the mills of forming up the Coalition. About which Morrison and Payne and whoever the Defence Minister is these days have been totally silent. Our future is being decided behind closed doors, without parliamentary oversight, with a code of top secret classifications over the lot and jail for whistleblowers, journalists, commentators or editors who speak about anything at all about the deliberations. Are we being sucked into yet another war by way of joining yet another US Coalition of the willing? It is just as well that Prime Minister-in-waiting Di Natale is busy holding the Government to account as a priority.

    D’Oh!
    Dumb clucks abound.
    The Government is serious about doing nothing about Newstart except to sool Robocop onto a random series of Newstart victims.
    Hello? Mission control to planet earth: Labor is doing exactly the same about Newstart that the Greens are doing: nothing.
    When you are in opposition like Labor, or when you are like the Greens with 27 years of wandering about in the political wilderness and counting, counting, counting, nothing is ALL you can do. (I believe that Di Natale lied publicly when he stated that the Greens ARE stopping Climate Change.)
    So, pet, if you are truly upset about what is happening to Newstart recipients, Morrison is your man: attack HIM.

    No need to get defensive because i point out that neither major party was serious about raising newstart because i clearly including the LNP in that. We know the Liberals wont raise it and the ALP wont either. Looking at Linda Burney’s twitter feed, since the last election I cannot see any mention of newstart so its clearly not something she is interested in.

  13. Dr. Bandy Lee, who is a professor of psychiatry at the Yale School of Medicine and editor of the bestselling book “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump” convened a panel comprised of leading mental health experts to evaluate Donald Trump based upon his behavior as detailed in the Mueller report.

    Their definitive conclusion: Trump is mentally unfit, a threat to the United States and the world, and as such should have his powers severely restricted. At the invitation of several Democratic members of Congress, Lee and other mental health professionals will present their findings about Donald Trump’s mental health at what they hope will be a bipartisan congressional meeting in Washington next month.

    But i do attack the government’s policy failings on welfare policy but i also know that they are as thick as two planks on this issue. The only thing that will get through to them is good old fashion political pressure because they are a fairly soft bunch and the main pressure has to come from their main opposition.

  24. Only three years to go and the Greens will pick up the missing 41%2PP and form a government.
    Prime Minister Di Natale will ban poverty, sickness, old age, unemployment, cotton, coal, uranium, the ADF, droughts, floods, private education and ignorant people with religious convictions. Money will grow on trees, all the rivers will run free and wild, the seas will stop rising, the temperatures will stop rising, and a hundred native wildflowers will bloom.
    PLUS for Greens devotees with time on their hands in their job guarantee jobs, there will STILL be a Labor opposition to blame for everything that ails the world!

    You singled out Burney by name. Did you do the same for the Minister for Social Security? No?
    For some reason that must have something to with the lizard brain, the Greens attack Labor four times as often as they attack the people who hold the power to do something about the issues that cause angst for the Greens.
    You might have a rational explanation for this phenomenum.

  28. Mexican

    It’s irrelevant now, but my feeling is that Bowen was a little over-confident in believing that Labor would win (like most everyone) and thought that a complete review of all welfare (inc Newstart) could be done in their first term, when the extra funds from other policies had been collected.

    Politically speaking, I agree it would have been wiser and more popular to announce that Newstart would be raised.

    So you’d formulate your policy and then you hold a review as to what your policy should be.

    Seems a strange approach, also Labor made clear statements that they believed it should be increased.

    They’re just being deliberately mischievous and trying to create a black stain on the Labor Party going forward.

    People in the Liberal Party, the Nationals, The Greens and in Business, have done much worse but they never get the repetitive focus that Bill Shorten does, or the equivalent of the virulently anti union stance that nath takes. It may not be all unions in general, but blackguard one or another and it rubs off onto unions in general. Though I note that nath hasn’t had much to say in a negative way about the CFMMEU. I wonder why that is?

  33. See? It’s not the Potato’s fault. It’s America.

    The United States has rejected more than 300 refugees under the Australia-US refugee deal, leaving the men in Australia’s offshore processing centres on Manus Island and Nauru.

    Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton said the target of resettling 1250 refugees was not going to be met, hampering the Coalition’s goal of closing down the detention centres.

    “I don’t think we’ll get there,” he said. “There’s been over 300 that have been rejected by the United States for various reasons. They will make decisions about who they will bring under their migration program.”

    Mr Dutton said there were 95 people who have either withdrawn from consideration or rejected an offer, 295 who were in the pipeline for approval and 531 who had been re-settled.

  34. It’s complicated.

    New data reveals that in the past 18 months, the Loy Yang A power station in the Latrobe Valley has suffered more outages than any other power plant in the National Energy Market, followed closely by nearby Yallourn.

    Energy market analysts said the relative unreliability of those two stations had been exposed by the sudden closure of Hazelwood in 2017, which stripped most of Victoria’s spare capacity out of the grid.

    But they also pointed to a rush of wind and solar projects due to connect to the grid in the next two years that will replace the capacity that was lost when Hazelwood was shuttered.

Liberal and National, urban and rural, they all seem to agree on that. It is the glue that holds them together when most other issues have them running away from each other at light speed. Anyone focusing on “union misbehaviour” is just carrying spears for the Coalition.

    Wage stagnation, insecure employment, underemployed, climate catastrophe …

    Why talk about these issues when there’s one badly behaved union boss out of hundreds in Australia they can misdirect everyone’s gaze towards?

    Apologies to George Carlin for alternative facts and words :

    The Real Owners Of Australia

    “The real owners are the big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions. Forget the politicians, they’re an irrelevancy. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. And they own all the big media companies, so that they control just about all of the news and information you hear. They’ve got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying ­ lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want; they want more for themselves and less for everybody else.”

    “But I’ll tell you what they don’t want. They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well-informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. That’s against their interests. They don’t want people who are smart enough to sit around the kitchen table and figure out how badly they’re getting fucked by the system

    “You know what they want? Obedient workers ­ people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork but just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, reduced benefits, the end of overtime and the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it. And, now, they’re coming for your Pension and your fucking retirement money. They want it back, so they can give it to their criminal friends And you know something? They’ll get it. They’ll get it all, sooner or later, because they own this fucking place.

    It’s a big club, and you ain’t in it. You and I are not in the big club.”

    “This country is FUCKED.”

  37. There’s actually a simple reason much of the discussion here tends to be about Labor, the Greens, and their relative virtues and/or lack thereof, and comparatively little critique of the Coalition. It’s nothing sinister.

    It comes down to the fact that the vast majority of people here, to varying extents, agree that the Coalition sucks. And things that everyone agree on rarely lead to vigorous discussion on internet forums. It’s the points of difference that generate the most words.

    The irony is that if we had more conservative posters here, there would be more criticism of Coalition, since we’d actually have some more defenders of Coalition policy and politicians to argue with.

  38. I didn’t know this. Nothing is ever simple. 🙁

    They are the next ‘black gold’. Without them, all sorts of green technology from wind turbines to electric cars and solar panels would not work.

    The extraction and refinement of rare metals causes immense environmental damage. To employ these metals in green and digital technologies, enormous quantities of rock must be extracted using huge amounts of acids. Purifying one tonne of rare-earth elements requires 200 cubic metres of water. In the process, this water is contaminated with heavy metals and ends up untreated in rivers, soils, and aquifers.

    The extraction of rare metals has become one of China’s most polluting industries. A world leader in their production, China’s approximately 10 000 mines scattered all over the country have helped ruin its environment. Contamination incidents have been numerous and serious. In 2006, 60 companies producing indium, a metal used in the manufacturing of solar panels, poured tonnes of chemicals into the river Xiang, polluting the supply of drinking water for local people. In the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, where most of the rare-earth elements needed for new technologies are extracted, mining areas have become hellish places. Close to the city of Baotou lies the Weikuang Dam, an 85-million cubic metre artificial lake filled with toxic waste from surrounding refineries. In Dalahai, a small village on its banks, 54-year-old Li Xinxia starkly recounts its impact on local people: “Many of us are ill. Cancers, strokes, hypertension… We’ve performed tests and our village has become known as the “the cancer village”. We know that the air we breathe is toxic and that we haven’t got long to live.”

  39. Now there’s some interesting things.
    The current Strait of Hormuz shipping routes, one in and one out, each 3km wide and the two separated by 2km) at least partially travel within the 12 NM limit of Iranian national waters. Arguably they would be within their legal rights to mine their own sovereign coastal waters.
    The US has just lifted its Iran oil export sanctions waivers for China and India.
    Will they play ball? I can’t imagine the Chinese doing anything at all on behalf of the US’s perceived national interests right now.
    Oh, and it is not just that it is around a fifth of all oil that goes through the Straits. It is around a third of tradeable oil.
    It is just as well that Australia has followed Molan’s recommendation and developed a strategic oil reserve!

    It comes down to the fact that the Greens feel the need to criticize Labor at a rate around four times their criticisms of the Coalition.
    I am not sure why they feel this need, but they do.
    Today is an interesting example. Someone went out of their way to attack Labor on Newstart.
    But Labor has had nothing to do with Newstart for six years and will have nothing to do with Newstart for at least another three years.
    Has a single poster singled out the Coalition solely for an attack on Newstart? No.
    Has a single poster even named the Coalition Minister for Newstart? No.
    Has the Coalition even mentioned Newstart since the election? No.
    This is not isolated. It is the norm.
    Perhaps you could provide an explanation for this behaviour?
    Why attack the powerless for what they are not doing for the powerless when it is the powerful who are doing the damage?
    Does this make sense to you?

    It’s a big club, and you ain’t in it. You and I are not in the big club.”

    Agree. Howard’s secret of success was that he made ordinary people believe they were in the big club, or at least that they could one day aspire to be in the big club – so they voted for him.

    Of course, they were not in the big club at all. They were not even on the waiting list of the big club. They were – at best – temporary employees of the big club.

    The more I learn, the more astonished I am at just how easily Australians can be convinced to vote against their own best interests 🙁
