0
13

Annastacia Palaszczuk is on track to win a historic third term as early results suggest Labor will hold in the regions and steal valuable seats from the TNL in the south-east

But her former deputy prime minister Jackie Trad was kicked out of parliament by a wave of Greens in south Brisbane, pushed by LNP preferences towards the minor party

Labor has the best of early returns, registering swings towards them in some of their key targets of Currumbin and Burleigh on the Gold Coast, Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast and Pumicestone and Hervey Bay, north of Brisbane

They were also defending well in some of their most vulnerable electorates in Barron River, Cairns, Mundingburra in Townsville and Mansfield and Aspley in Brisbane.

Two other fringe headquarters in Townsville – Thurungowa and Townsville – were still on the razor’s edge

And the LNP sees swings in the southeast corner that could end Deb Frecklington’s Tory leadership

Courier-Mail and Sky News to qualify winners first in must-have seat-by-seat coverage and provide in-depth analysis overnight

Coomera, like its neighboring headquarters of Theodore on the Gold Coast to the north, sees a shock turn to Labor

Michael Crandon, popular local LNP MP, holds short lead on primary vote

His Labor rival Chris Johnson polled 3,682%, M Johnson declined to participate in the Seat Bulletin forum

Labor vote up around 47 percent Seat cannot be called at this early stage

He said that although he has yet to speak to his daughter, he described the result to Inala as « spectacular, spectacular »

Labor Party Chairman John Battams said he believed the result would be ‘a little closer’, pointing to an ‘extraordinary’ shift to Labor at Pumicestone headquarters

“What we saw was that a lot of liberal voters walked into the stand and voted for us because of the strong leadership that Annastacia is showing,” he said.

Targeting the LNP’s pledge to make the four-lane Bruce Highway, calling it a « crook », Mr. Battams said Labor had improved their vote across the board

He described Pumicestone’s result so far, which currently has a 113 percent look to work, as « extraordinary »

When asked if Labor’s handling of the pandemic has helped them, Mr. Battams said he thought it was part of it
The party chairman said if the result had not been announced, he did not expect it to be so quick

« The Prime Minister has an incredible sense and understanding of what people think in the community, » he said

A senior LNP source told the Courier-Mail: « We were fortunate to change leaders and change the course of the election result four months ago. We wasted our time in opposition  »

The LNP is set to grab a bunch of seats in North Queensland and while it has eaten away at the Labor party’s lead, it has yet to translate into major wins

Work appears to be hanging on in Barron River and Cairns after seeing healthy primary fluctuations towards them

The only path to the TNL victory required them to take the three seats around Townsville

Labor appears to be keeping Mundingburra, but NLP still has some hope in Townsville and Thuringowa

Without those five seats for the LNP, it seems like a long night for their leaders trying to find a path to victory.

With 561% of the votes counted, M Minnikin has 506% of the vote, preference of both parties

Initially elected during the Campbell Newman landslide in 2012, Mr. Minnikin was one of the very few PNL members to occupy her seat when Prime Minister Annastacia Palaszczuk led a barn takeover

If M Minnikin is holding on, it will be thanks to a strong personal vote – he’s a ubiquitous figure in the electorate with strong community ties since his school years

Marty Hunt, MP for Nicklin, due to work for his second term, fears increasingly of being toppled

Party insiders tell News Corp it could have « serious problems » as it fights to retain the long-coveted LNP seat

It is understood that M Hunt may have lost the Nambour High School stand on early preferences, with Labor Party’s Robert Skelton reportedly edging him out by nearly 100 votes

Labor picked up a 49% swing across the state as the TNL vote is down 09% with about 25% of the total counted

But the swing has been far from uniform with the LNP vote holding up better in the north but struggling in the pockets of Brisbane and on the Gold and Sunshine coasts

The night’s biggest loser was One Nation, with a vote down 62 percent statewide

Greens recorded an 11% turn to them as Katter Australia Party vote is up 05 percent

TNL voting should get a boost when counting pre-ballot and postal votes

Former Queensland Premier Campbell Newman has been open about the LNP night so far, saying: « It’s dark »

« I don’t think it will be our night for sure, » he told Sky News live coverage of the election.

M Newman, who led the LNP to a stunning victory in 2012 before losing after just one term in office, is on Sky News’s election coverage panel tonight

When asked if he thinks the coronavirus pandemic has given Labor an advantage, Mr. Newman was adamant in rejecting the suggestion

« The LNP’s primary vote has been below 40 percent for quite a long time now, » said M Newman

« Yes, it was difficult, but as I have said on several occasions there are a lot of things that could have been criticized about the way the pandemic was handled here

He said opposition leader Deb Frecklington failed to capitalize on negative sentiment about Annastacia Palaszczuk’s tough border position in tourism dependent communities

Currumbin’s siege on the Gold Coast appears to be in jeopardy, Mr. Newman, « and he shouldn’t be »

« The people there should understand that this has been extremely bad for their livelihoods, and this is how you have to campaign. »

Labor Caloundra candidate Jason Hunt has been at a loss for his words after seeing the first results filter from this year’s state election

M Hunt is 42 in 6% percent of first preference votes, with around 7,500 so far for Caloundra electorate

Deputy Prime Minister Steven Miles is back in front in Murrumba with 509% of the vote Yvonne Barlow of LNP has only 27%

Attorney General Yvette D’Ath took the lead at Redcliffe HQ with 44% Kerri-anne Dooley of LNP not far behind with 3,696 percent Only 15% of the vote was counted

BREAKING: Former Deputy Prime Minister Jackie Trad lost South Brisbane seat, says Sky host Peter Gleeson

Former Labor chairman and QUT assistant associate professor John Mickel said the former deputy prime minister had lost his grip on the seat to the Greens

With seven stalls, Trad follows Amy MacMahon of the Greens by 41-58%, making it ‘very difficult to come back from’

« The happiest person in Queensland tonight is the Prime Minister because she lost Jackie Trad, » TNL Senator for Queensland James McGrath told Sky

LNP strategists very concerned about early count results in Gold Coast state poll

They admit party is unlikely to beat Gaven MP Meaghan Scanlon, if trend continues

Currumbin outfit by LNP’s Laura Gerber is on a knife-edge and she risks losing preferences, again if trends continue

ALP’s Ali King quickly took the lead in crucial Pumicestone headquarters with 4,791% of the vote LNP’s Fiona Gaske 30% of the vote

The two Labor Party incumbents in Brisbane’s most marginalized seats, Aspley and Mansfield, seats to which the LNP has devoted a great deal of time and resources, lead the first figures

Leanne Linard, ALP holder, took the head of Nudgee headquarters, with 5,094% of the vote

Bart Mellish of Labor has taken over the marginal seat of Aspley, with 4,549% of the vote to date

The Pine Rivers seat appears to be hotly contested, with the vote tight between ALP candidate Nikki Boyd with 5,150% and LNP candidate Kara Thomas with 3,681% of the vote

First-term MP Corrine McMillan, former school principal, has a 61% swing with 4% of the vote counted

PNL incumbent Tony Perrett took a significant lead as the vote count for Gympie’s seat began

M Perrett got 40% of the vote with 154% of the votes counted

Geoff Williams of the Labor Party sits behind M Perrett with 26% of the primary vote, Michael Blaxland of One Nation clearly behind with 13%

In Bundaberg where 725% of the vote was counted, Labor candidate Tom Smith has 425% of the vote, compared to incumbent PNL MP David Batt 386 percent

Labor have the best of early returns, seeing swings towards them in some of their key targets and defending well in some of their most vulnerable electorates

Multiple visits by Prime Minister Annastacia Palaszcuk to Caloundra and Currumbin appear to have paid off, with Labor seeing big fluctuations in their case

Emergency Services Minister Craig Crawford was considered vulnerable in the far north of Barron River, but holds nearly 55% of the two-party preferred vote with around 2,500 votes counted

Work is also in the lead in the must-have seat in the Brisbane suburban headquarters of Mansfield and Aspley

A bitter note for Labor, however, was the first comebacks in South Brisbane, where former Deputy Prime Minister Jackie Trad fell behind Greens challenger Amy MacMahon, who holds nearly 56% of the preferred vote of two parties with 7% of the votes counted

Police Minister and Morayfield MP Mark Ryan advance early with 5,386% of the vote TNL’s Theresa Craig at 189% and Green candidate Amy Smith 11%

These represent must-see seats for the LNP – three fringe Labor seats that leader Deb Frecklington has campaigned for, knowing that a victory here will make it virtually impossible for Labor to rule outright

The LNP controversially introduced a youth curfew policy in Townsville to tackle an alleged wave of juvenile crime, a losing vote in more progressive parts of south-east Queensland, but a policy Ms Frecklington has bet will play well in the besieged city

94 percent counted at Townsville headquarters, 11 percent so far turn to Labor MP Scott Stewart; seven1 percent counted in Mundingburra, 47 percent so far turn to Labor candidate Les Walker; 43% counted in Thuringowa, a 01% moves away from Labor MP Aaron Harper

Sky News tellers say controversial former Deputy Prime Minister Jackie Trad is in deep trouble as first hints of tally arrive

Trad is lagging behind on the pits which it should have easily won and currently has 356% of the vote, behind Greens Amy MacMahon who has 4,204 percent

Tellers say ‘Trad is in real trouble’, but stressed things can change quickly as voting rolls out

Outgoing ALP President Chris Whiting leads the vote count with 54% of the vote Phil Carlson of LNP at 25 percent

Very early but LNP’s Yvonne Barlow up with 39 percent Deputy Prime Minister Steven Miles is right behind with 38%

Sources say there is a 9% swing to minor parties in Burleigh so far

Four stands have now been counted at Burleigh who showed a 1252% swing against LNP holder Michael Hart

LNP struggles early in two South East Queensland seats they were due to win

At Currumbin on the Gold Coast, there was a 46 percent swing to work, which would be enough to tip the seat

In the Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast, there was an even larger 11% shift towards Labor with nearly 2,500 votes counted

Labor had hopes of winning the seat, with Prime Minister Annastacia Palszczuk making several trips there during the campaign

Bundaberg also looked like a close competition and was one of the LNP insiders keeping a close watch

Outgoing TNL MP David Batt suffered a 25% swing at him but would hang on if it stayed like this

The Queensland Election Commission has early results available for 21 seats, no higher than the 242% counted in Gladstone

Seats with results arriving are: Buderim, Burdekin, Burnett, Cairns, Callide, Condamine, Cook, Everton, Gladstone, Gregory, Ipswich West, Lockyer, McConnel, Miller, Mount Ommaney, Nanango, Scenic Rim, Southern Downs, Toowoomba North, Traeger and Waterford

Hard to believe One Nation doesn’t present a candidate for Callide – Sharon Lohse, grazeuse from Biggenden, received 439% of the vote after preferences in 2017, one of the highest in the state

The dominant view is that One Nation will fail to achieve its result in 2017, with its only MP Stephen Andrew in Mirani fighting hard to keep the party’s only foot in parliament

Polls were closed on what was a chaotic and stormy day for the Queensland state election

Hail has hit much of the southeastern state, the Bureau of Meteorology warning of « life-threatening storms »

But political leaders were also forced to shield themselves from passionate volunteers in voting booths when Prime Minister Annastacia Palaszczuk took a spray from an TNL supporter.

Ms Palaszczuk hopes to become the first woman to be re-elected to a third term, as Opposition Leader Deb Frecklington fights to force a change of government in the Sunshine State

A smiling Ms Palaszczuk greeted locals as she left the Inala voting site before the volunteer started berating her as she walked away

« 209,000 people out of work Premier It’s time to stop Open the borders, » the man can be heard shouting at Ms Palaszczuk

Less than 40 minutes before the polls close, late betting money backs a Labor minority to lead Queensland after Saturday’s election

The sportsbet betting company at lunchtime on Saturday had a Labor minority at $ 1 95 days after the odds were only $ 1 73 for a Labor majority, compared to $ 4 for a Labor minority

The odds for a LNP minority are $ 2.75, while that of a LNP majority is $ 10

Bettors have Labor as their next government anyway, with odds of $ 1.20 compared to NL’s $ 4

Volunteers from polling stations in Crestmead, Kingston, Marsden and Burrowes tell voters to go elsewhere if possible after stations lost power in the storm

More than 30,000 homes across the southeast have lost power due to storms

The Greens are on track to register more than 40% of the primary vote in South Brisbane and at the Maiwar headquarters, based in Indooroopilly, said Max Chandler-Mather, party strategist in Queensland

The party is expected to win 39-43% in South Brisbane and up to 42% in Maiwar, based on campaign data on the ground

Annastacia Palaszczuk reminded drivers not to try to cross flooded roads as severe storms hit the southeast

An emergency alert has now been issued for Woodridge, Beenleigh, Southport and Coomera, in addition to a number of suburbs west of Brisbane which were the subject of an alert earlier this afternoon

Election volunteers were seriously injured inches away after a vehicle crashed into their gazebo outside the Baree polling station just north of Mount Morgan this afternoon

LNP campaign volunteer Lauren Clein said she arrived right after the accident at the Baree School of Arts on Razorback Rd at around 1 p.m.

When she pulled up to the polling station, she saw a utility that was « entirely under » a gazebo shared by volunteers from TNL and One Nation.

Witnesses described the accident to him, saying that a vehicle had come around the corner and the driver had experienced a « medical episode »

She said a parked ute was pushed into the gazebo by the impact of the crash

« He narrowly missed one of Tracie Newitt’s volunteers He was having a cup of tea and a sandwich for lunch, » Ms Clein said.

« He probably missed it by less than a yard He destroyed a gazebo and a table

She said the car was badly damaged by the crash and the driver was taken by paramedics to hospital

Due to the back pain experienced by the driver, paramedics had to transfer them to Rockhampton Hospital for x-rays as a « spine precaution »

Queensland Police said they were sending officers to hospital to question the driver about the crash

Michael Berkman, Maiwar Greens MP, with one of the golf ball-sized hailstones that fell in Fig Tree Pocket moments ago

A Toowong woman protested an anti-abortion sign affixed to a truck that told voters to « put the Greens last »

The sign on the truck has a picture of a baby and reads ‘Greens supported Labor abortion until birth laws’

Maiwar Green MP Michael Berkman shared an image on Twitter of a woman protesting the sign with her own handwritten sign

« Ignore this truck… The & Church must come out of my womb », she indicates

M Berkman applauded the young protester, writing: “A MASSIVE cry to this Toowong resident to counter the disgusting anti-abortion truck parked outside the voting booth with its own sign.

An aerial sign saying ‘Vote Labor Out Justice 4 Angus’ was spotted above Redcliffe today

The sign refers to Clontarf teenager Angus Beaumont who was murdered by two teenagers in Redcliffe earlier this year

Juvenile crime has been one of the biggest issues at Redcliffe headquarters this year

Labor pledged to establish two mobile police coups in the peninsula as well as 150 additional police officers for the region

Of five electorates visited in South and Brisbane Bay, only one, Stretton, reported a number of voters approaching what is considered the ‘norm’

Stretton MP Duncan Pegg, who won the Labor Party seat in 2015, said there were up to 100 people lined up early at Stretton State College to vote early, countering the trend that most booths yielded only 20 to 30 early risers lined up before 8 a.m.

M Pegg attributed this to several causes, the most prominent being the prevalence of dual citizenship in his electorate – usually many of them would vote by mail because of their time abroad, but since the COVID shutdown -19, they went home and do a casting their vote in person

At Mansfield State School, one of Brisbane’s two fringe seats, alongside Aspley, the LNP invested significant resources in bringing down a sitting member, with volunteers sometimes outnumbering voters by three to one.

Voters at this booth might expect to nudge Labor MP Corrine McMillan, former Labor MP Phil Reeves, Mayor Adrian Schrinner, MP Bonner Ross Vasta, LNP candidate Janet Wishart and the Greens candidate Rob Walter

In the early afternoon at Macgregor State School in Toohey headquarters, five discouraged volunteers strolled the leafy path to the school building housing the booths, as unique voters trickled down every few minutes.

Labor volunteer Trent Boyce, in his third Macgregor campaign, said it was the ‘quietest’ he had ever seen

Another volunteer, Ben Kelly, who was handing out cards for NLP, was asked if he was missing the atmosphere of the ‘democratic’ sausage sizzling

Brisbane’s hit children’s TV show, available on ABC iView, today launched a special episode called « Circus »

The episode comes at an opportune time for Queenslanders who today lined up in voting booths to vote on who will run the state, and a perfect time for parents to teach their children to vote

It featured the much loved lively blue heeled puppy Bluey, his sister Bingo, mum Chilli and daddy, Bandit walking through a field with the summit of Mt Coot-tha behind them and many candidate signs from different parts.

Chilli explains that it’s voting day and they have to choose one of the people on the signs to « be the boss »

When Bluey says not to choose someone because she “doesn’t like their smile,” Chilli says, “You don’t vote for someone based on their appearance, you vote for someone who will be the best boss  »

The episode shows queues to vote and, of course, the sizzle of the beloved democracy sausage – the best part of voting

Bluey became an international phenomenon, and was created in Brisbane by animator Joe Brumm, produced by Ludo Studio in Fortitude Valley

There were bigger queues in shopping center parking lots, but that didn’t stop Democratic sausages and garage sales across the West Brisbane headquarters today

The crowds were mostly in the malls, especially in Ashgrove and Paddington, where it took up to 20 minutes to get out of the parking lots

But the Bardon Girl guides always did a regular trade all morning with snags and crafts at their booth at the Lavalla Center polling station in Paddington.

Michael Berkman, Maiwar Greens candidate, who stopped to vote at Rainworth State School in Bardon, and Cooper Greens candidate Katinka Winston-Allom, appeared to be doing well judging by the number of voters holding their voting card

Party strategist Max Chandler-Mather announced a convincing victory in Maiwar, where he declared the main vote of M Berkman could reach more than 40%

The main rival of M Berkman, former Channel 10 reporter and LNP candidate Lauren Day, said there was great energy for her party

« We are receiving good feedback We will fight to the last to win Maiwar back, » she said.

« I feel so lucky and grateful for the team I have and just got a text from Deb Frecklington so I was very well supported.  »

The seat, formerly called Indooroopilly, was held by Scott Emerson of the LNP until the shock of M Berkman, a narrow victory in 2016

In Moggill’s Blue Ribbon headquarters, PNL holder Dr Christian Rowan said there was a noticeable drop in Labor Party support

He voted at Pullenvale State School, where he said there was a constant flow of voters but the numbers were down from previous years

At Macgregor State School in Toohey, run by Labor MP Peter Russo with a 10% safety margin, the few volunteers outnumber the voters even fewer

Labor volunteer Trent Boyce said it was his third election by handing out voting cards to Macgregor, and it’s the quietest ever

Even at 8 a.m., usually the busiest time, the queue barely made it through the leafy path to the pits, where they would usually reach the school gate and beyond.

Longtime LNP volunteer Ben Kelly said he expected even fewer voters as the storm blew

When asked if he had missed the atmosphere provided by the ‘democratic’ sausage sizzling, he replied that he could ‘feel that feeling in Bunnings’

Macalister Returning Officer David Gardner has granted Beenleigh volunteers a reprieve after the storm eases the 6m exclusion zone

As part of the easing, volunteers can enter the voting building while it is raining or hailing but do not have to hand out how to vote cards, cover their campaign shirts, and not talk about politics to the ‘interior

Macalister candidate Juid van Manen welcomed the move and said the safety of volunteers was of the utmost importance

It could be some time before election results in today’s Southern Downs State are confirmed, if voter turnout is something to be done At WIRAC, LNP party representatives and ALP, Jacque Kruger and Mathew Smith, said the numbers had been « slow but steady » this morning – which they attributed to early voting and postal votes

Over 100,000 Queenslanders are estimated to have voted before today due to coronavirus fears Those who ran had their priorities clear, however, with the coronavirus playing an important role in the decision-making of this election

Ryan Moore, resident of Warwick, said he would vote for anyone who could provide job security. « I don’t want anyone to lose their job, so that’s my main reason for voting, » he said declared « The coronavirus affects everything »

Teacher Shannon Sinnot said the pandemic had been a huge obstacle during the school year, with broken promises being a hindrance to the current state government

The tough border position could also influence local votes, with businesses in the region undoubtedly affected throughout the year

« Oh my God yeah If there are cases, I support closing the borders, but if there isn’t, I mean the country has to get back on track, » she said. declared

Ms Ware also represented those in the Southern Downs community having had enough of the two main parties

« If you don’t like one and you’re not concerned about the other, it’s hard to think who you’ll go

One Nation Rep Sharron Farnell hoped this would lead voters to other candidates like Rosemary Moulden, One Nation’s Southern Downs candidate

« Rosemary has been greeted positively and she appears to be a go-getter, which is what you need »

The man who could become the state’s power broker was handing out how to vote cards outside a Mount Isa school this morning, waiting to see if ten years of hard work was about to pay off

Robbie Katter may well emerge with the balancer of power after today’s poll, meaning he can nominate his own prize in return for helping a party form a government

Katter said his main goal was to hold his vast headquarters north-west of Traeger as well as Katter’s other two Australian party headquarters in the north.

But the tantalizing prospect of redirecting political energy to the areas of Queensland was also very much on his mind.

« You are kind of wondering if all the hard work could start to come to fruition, » he said.

« It has been a difficult task for ten years trying to create a party, and now we could see some real rewards. »

Katter’s father, Bob, MP for Kennedy, had extensive experience playing a political version of « piggy in the middle » and kept the nation’s charm for several days as he and two independents negotiated. with the Coalition and the Labor Party after the 2010 federal government election

Katter junior is open about his long list of requests and would place an old-fashioned juvenile detention center in a secluded location near Kajabbi north of Mt Isa near the top of his list if he emerges as a broker power

This detention center has been specially designed to respond to juvenile crime in towns in northern Queensland, which is a key electoral issue, particularly in Townsville electorates

But the KAP will also force any party seeking power to make a series of pledges on water infrastructure projects in the Queensland region in order to spark a resurgence in agriculture.

And KAP will also ask the state to build the Galilee Basin railway line to open up mining rather than watch Indian coal miner Adani build and own it.

« The point is, a lot of what we want is about wealth creation, » said Katter, who gathered with her extended family at the Mount Isa Hotel last night for a family dinner.’

« We do not want to build big stadiums on Mount Isa or tunnels in Brisbane, but to generate income that will ultimately benefit the whole state
‘Brisbane people might find they get as much from it as we do’

Voters were scarce in voting booths across the southern Gold Coast in the early afternoon

Kaylee Campradt, Labor candidate for Currumbin, was in Elanora State High School and said she « feels good » in her battle to topple rookie LNP MP Laura Gerber

As the rainy weather drove some voters away, others told the Bulletin the numbers were down all day, with numbers showing more than 60% of voters had pre-voted

« I have never seen him so calm on polling day, » an experienced political activist told the Courier-Mail this afternoon.

« Labor vote was strong in some seats, there could be upheaval in Coomera

« The border has been the big deal – a lot of people who would normally vote Liberals are flirting with the Labor vote because they are happy with what happened

« Conversely, there are other voters who would normally vote for Labor who own businesses and who are planning to go liberal It’s really divided »
– Andrew Potts

Townsville man making ‘racist comments’ at voting booth taken away by police

In a heated exchange filmed by Sky News, the man is seen heckling Joshua Schwarz, Australia’s Katter party candidate in Townsville, calling him a Nazi

In last year’s federal election he was arrested and charged with multiple offenses after an incident at an early voting center

A spokeswoman for the Queensland Police Department confirmed that police were called to the Mundingburra State School booth earlier this morning to learn that a man made racist comments and was then taken away

Surfing legend Wayne ‘Rabbit’ Bartholomew says he treats election day like a professional surf tournament
Former world champion, famous Labor candidate for Burleigh against two-term LNP MP Michael Hart, admitted he had faced an uphill battle to overcome a 485% margin to claim the seat
« I have participated in many tournaments in my life, but never got stuck – I am still waiting for the result of the judges, » he said.
“I definitely came in as an underdog – the incumbent had a 5 percent margin and that’s a lot of votes But it’s a different election and I hope people want to see a little change and a new voice for the Gold Coast
« It’s just at the end of the day that I feel that my participation in this race made everyone work harder »
Previously, M Hart said Bartholomew was ‘amicable’ during the election campaign, but accused Labor of breaking its own rules by placing marquees and election signs inside voting booths

But Bartholomew activists posted photos they said showed employees at the M booth Hart were also breaking the rules
One of the volunteers of M Hart attempted to block one of Bartholomew’s surfboard-shaped election signs as the Courier-Mail snapped the tall surfer’s picture at Palm Beach State School
Bartholomew also revealed that he actually lived in the neighboring Currumbin headquarters and voted for Kaylee Campradt of the Labor Party.

BRISBANE PR Queen Kath Rose said her experience at the voting booth this morning had left her « furious »

Ms Rose took to Facebook to share her experience saying she was « so angry » that she was « actually shaking »

« I was in line and a Labor spruiker was talking to the person behind me, trying to get them to vote for Labor – nothing wrong with that, » she wrote

« BUT he said to that person, » how can you vote for the incumbent, they’re not even from here

« My response to the spruiker was that unless he is a traditional owner of the land, NONE OF US ARE HERE. »
