What a shocking result for Australia.
We lose Jim - and in return we get this.
The AEC reports that 72% of Senate 1st preference votes have been counted.
I may be wrong, but I very much dislike the proportion of 677 : 1.378M Molan to LNP group.
I'm glad that there are people much more optimistic than me among us!
Patience Michael, the Senate counting will take weeks.— ClockUponTheWall (@ClockUponWall) May 23, 2019
The word is Jim's received the most first preference votes in the history of the Senate....hopefully it's enough.
