I'm content with the result.

    A narrow coalition win is better than a labor government, that's a given, but it is also better than a big coalition win.

    Had Turnbull been returned with a mandate he would have interpreted that as a PERSONAL mandate and we would have had the modern equivalent of an Emperor. What we have now is a liberal government that must walk the liberal path, not one of Turnbull's choosing.

    Too early to call but I'm hoping for a senate where the cross-bench is not as bloody minded as the last, so, for me at least, it's not all doom'n'gloom.
