Our predictions were right, it was a tight race between the fascists and the Greens. We lost by 0.3% of the vote in the race for that last place in the region.
If we'd been able to get just a few more votes instead of returning the most reactionary scumbag imaginable we could have sent a fantastic, clear socialist in Peter Cranie. That was the choice before the electorate and unfortunately we weren't able to prevent the absolutely worst happening. Sickening.
