And the winner is…

…Oakeshott, in a landslide.

64.14% first preference, 74.38% TCP.

Now for the people of Lyne to get used to having, you know, representation in Parliament.

Vaile’s gone

July 19, 2008

Looks like Lyne will be going to the polls again.

But will Labor run a candidate? Seeing how they won’t in Mayo, where Downer has a smaller margin than Vaile, it seems unlikely.

I hope they do run, if only to provide a choice other than the Greens. If they could somehow convince Jamie Harrison to run for the ALP they’d have a good chance of getting a swing towards them – not that Harrison would do that, of course.
