Almost there

It's not ready to call yet. Labor is getting closer to winning the election, but not yet. I still think John Howard is gone. Malcolm Turnbull appears safe. Peter Costello was looking shaky in Higgins for a short while. The incredibly bad Danna Vale has made it home in Hughes. I think Bob Baldwin has retained Paterson, but I know from past elections that this electorate can take days to decide.

No worries for Anthony Albanese in Grayndler. It looks, however, as if the Greens have slightly lost ground since 2004. Daniel Caffery will finish in second place for the Liberals before disappearing into obscurity again.

And the ABC computer is calling Longman as a win for the ALP. Mal Brough would be a huge loss for the Liberal Party.
