With everybody talking about the election result and who campaigned well and who tanked, I thought I’d tell readers about my day on July 2nd as I thought it may interest some.

Well, what an election result we have seen so far.
Bill Shorten acting victorious without being able to claim victory. Malcolm Turnbull ranting and raving about being robbed despite looking like he will remain PM. Richard Di Natale trying to pretend that not gaining a single member in the House Of Representatives and losing one in the Senate is a positive thing, and the country is left scratching it’s collective head.
One of the most talked about seats in the Federal Election is the inner city seat of Higgins in Melbourne.
The seat is said to be a tight three-way contest between the Liberal, Labor and Green Parties. Currently however Kelly O’Dwyer holds the seat with a comfortable margin of 9.9%
If Labor is to take government in a couple of weeks it needs to win back some marginal seats and so far things are looking pretty positive in that regards.
One thing on Bill Shorten’s side is the fact that Labor is the only one of the main three Parties to have not had their leader knifed in a hostile takeover in the last three years.
I’m not usually one for hypotheticals but given the high chances of this happening I thought it warranted reminding people about who our possible future Deputy Prime Minister may be.
Despite the polls, despite the momentum, and despite the lack of direction and dud policies, there is still a reasonable chance that the Coalition will be returned to government.
The RSPCA Victoria yesterday raided two properties and seized approximately 120 dogs in shocking physical and emotional states.
The investigation and raid were carried out by the RSPCA’s new Special Investigations Unit, and is certainly a sign that the formation of this unit was a necessity.
On Friday I couldn’t help but spare a thought for Clare O’Neil.
Clare is of course the Labor member for Hotham, a tireless spokesperson and campaigner for her community, but also someone with a caring and compassionate heart.
