Apparently, the left of center in Queensland took a huge beating in a state election. Giving their Liberal party (right of center) a super majority of seats in their lower house.
I’m wondering if we can’t get one of our Aussie friends to explain the intricacies of this event for us? I know this will be perceived as a loss for Gillard and maybe a sort of referendum on her policies, but again, I’m ignorant of how things work down there.
Is the lower house they’re referring to the legislature of the state or of the national legislature of Australia?
