Oh that's right, cops can't afford to live anywhere. I'm thinking America will fix this problem by going full automation (robo-cop) before it considers paying them better. That's how we roll.

Get a load of this sooky idiot. Sophie Mirabella quits politics and says she'll be a commentator

Fact you lost couldn't possibly have had anything to do with being a shit local member and reprehensible human being.

Australia really needs another useless 'commentator'?

It's amazing how she keeps blaming other people for her loss, as if it were this huge conspiracy and she was a flawless member who ran an ideal campaign. Her disconnect from reality and lack of self-reflection really is extraordinary.

Can't wait for her to be another garbage writer in the Daily Tele.

I guess that leaves one still standing from that famous 'Ditch the Witch' photocall... our man Tone.

Sophie Mirabella just got unlucky to find herself up against a capable opponent. Australia has plenty of useless members who are, to quote a phrase, araldited to the seat... people who get returned decade after decade for no discernible reason.

That Mirabella wasn't found some other likely seat to stand in says to me that she didn't have much sway within the Liberal Party either. Another perpetual student politician.

I was stunned that she even got preselected to have another go this year - but not surprised at all when the Liberal hierarchy basically couldn't be fucked getting behind her campaign in any serious capacity.

I do wonder if her name is now sufficiently toxic that an attempt to parachute her in elsewhere would be doomed to failure. At least your bog standard useless member flies under the radar. Everybody knows how dreadful Sophie is, to the point that there was the whole "Kelly the new Sophie" thing about Kelly O'Dwyer in Higgins.

Yeah, she's done. Done like a turkey. If they wouldn't or couldn't find a spare seat for the great John Howard, Sophie is pretty much out of luck.

Partly I wish Barnaby had lost his seat just to see the mad scramble that would have followed.

I didn't see it, though it sounds unpleasant.

It would have been delightful if Joyce had lost, but I guess we overestimated Windsor's local support. I still... yeah, whatever... but if his voters wanted a Coalition member all those years, they should have voted for one. It goes with the territory that an independent might support either party (eg Labor in 2010).

What 4 Corners report?

...Actually no, my bad, I see there are some stories up on the Guardian... I've been having, shall we say, telecommunications issues the last few days.
