I campaigned harder than I ever have knowing that each election risks the East taking control of the West .
We won back our seat despite the odds against us in Corangamite The incompetence and ignorance of Labor about the two different cultures not helping their case ( Firefighters and Schools meddling )
Like Henry V's troops we true Nationals are tired of fighting and with the odds against us growing each for years to greater that 5 to 1 . i was inspired by those now too old to campaign for farmers and for our young people who are given degrees but no mentors ,
At this point we wait in hope .Its not clear if anyone will hold the balance of power .. We have done well to hold influence for so long .
Unlike Labor we have held that confidence of the people not by numbers but by competence . Our ability to act efficiently in keeping the economy productive hasn't changed .In 2004 when we first fought this battle i wrote about the risk of the children taking charge. As every year passes they gain more control . At some point soon judgement must come for both the parents and the children
