A Bloodbath In Queensland

Australia held its local elections in one of its six states today - Queensland. The left wing and deeply green Labor Party has ruled that state for all but two years since 1989. But today, the drubbing they took at the hands of the conservatives was the equivalent of a massacre. Going into today, Labor held a majority, 51 of the 89 seats in the Queensland Parliament. At the end of the day, they held on to only seven seats. That's two seats shy of the nine seats they needed to hold just to retain their status as a major party in Queensland. Wow.

No one is as happy about this as the bloggers down under at the great site Crusader Rabbit. Do pay them a visit and say your congrats. The good guys won this one.

Update: Queensland Ethically Cleansed. Heh.

Many thanks for the link, GW. Much appreciated.
Let's hope this is part of a tide of revulsion across the West and it'll sweep away the socialists.
