The big risk is a bunch of politicians will win I guess.
OK ... lets get on with it.
are that the current government will win the election. But its not as
if it'll be a landslide and the Opposition is in with a chance.
It doesn't really matter for the AUD which side wins, there shouldn't be much of an impact.
real risk is if neither sides manages to suck enough of us in to get a
majority - a hung parliament. And another risk is a big decline in votes
for the 2 major parties and a string of minor parties getting in
(particularly to the Upper House) and holding the balance of power.
Brexit, Trump ... developments like these are showing we can't take for
granted a vote for the status quo (and by that in Australia I mean
either of the two major parites, Tweetledum and Tweetledumber).
We should have a clearish picture of the broad result by late evening on Saturday (Australia time).
I've been a bit dismissive of the leaders of the two major parties,
perhaps unfairly. They have both put up a good fight for their
respective sides and good luck to them.
