Hilarious how woman-hater David Leyonhjelm’s bio states “personal abusers blocked” when he has abused the electorate (not to mention certain phenomenal female Senators) for YEARS. Thank you NSW for blocking this weakminded misogynistic hypocrite POS. 🙌🏼#auspol #NSWVotes.

It would probably really upset David Leyonhjelm now if people kept referring to him as an MP, just saying. People should definitely not do this ... 😂 #auspol #NSWVotes.

of Mark Latham below-the-lines leaked immediately from the One Nation ticket. Another flowed to ON candidates other than #2, and may have leaked later. Very similar to Hanson and Lambie leak rates in 2016 Senate. #nswvotes.

Every election has its sliverlining of & #NSWVotes was no exception! It is official @DavidLeyonhjelm missed out on an 8 year upper house position! His lucky Federal election & subsequent politics of opportunism & division in Canberra had little traction in NSW.

Schadenfreude squad out in force for Leyonhjelm defeat but anti-abortion, anti-gay Christian Dems losing a seat has barely scored a mention. Had everyone forgotten they existed? #nswvotes.

Recently spoke to NSW Christian Democrat Paul Green, former Shoalhaven mayor who nervously awaits the count today. He wants to keep his job in the upper house, which is under threat, with Mark Latham elected and Keep Sydney Open and Animal Justice parties entering fray #nswvotes.

Because #nswvotes requires parties to run ridiculous numbers of candidates for an ATL box it will be a long time before anything meaningful happens in the election/exclusion process..

The lowest scoring candidate in #nswvotes was David Walter (Advance) with 1 vote. Everyone else got at least three. In 2015 three candidates polled zero votes..

NSW Legislative Council distribution of preferences about to start. Should take about 40 minutes to distribute votes. #nswvotes.
