Despite a 5.2% swing against Labor on an evening where the Government was thrown out by electors in a landslide, the ALP's Carmel Tebbutt appears to have retained the NSW State seat of Marrickville.
If this holds true then Green's candidate and Mayor of Marrickville, Fiona Byrne will have lost the "unlosable election".
I suspect that in her municipality's sister city, the Hamas dominated Bethlehem Council is already taking some time off from persecuting its Christian minority and planning attacks on Israeli civilians to declare a day of mourning or a day of rage whichever way it's inclined.
A small triumph for the concept of democracy which was all but dead in Marrickville after Byrne's Greens supported by ALP members of Council voted to boycott Israel without any apparent mandate or consultation with its citizens.
Byrne who admitted she didn't know all that much about the conflict (but wanted a peaceful resolution) then compounded her problems with conflicting and confused comments about her intentions to raise the Israel/Palestine boycott in Parliament if elected.
It appears that she won't have any such problems because she won't be elected and I suppose this means she's now free to join her BDS mates in that planned singalong with the bigots and haters taking place next week.
