I'm not going to bore everyone with my disection of the results, you can click here for the ABC's take.

This is just an historic event, the Greens outpolling a major party and winning a lower house seat in the West Australian Parliament. Are we on the cusp of breaking the Liberal/Labor duoply of the tweedle-dee tweedle-dum version of democracy and see some energy, vigour and accountability injected into Australian politics?

One can only hope so :)
