Were you surprised by the election results on the weekend and why?
Dan McMahon, Airlie Beach: I'm not surprised at all. I think everyone has had enough of Labor. I'd like to see Abbot Point go ahead to save Bowen and Collinsville. Cherelle Gormly, Airlie Beach: I'm happy the Liberals got in, Labor was an absolute joke. I am looking forward to the Liberals improving our border protection and correcting the budget. Tim Wooton, Cannonvale: Everyone knew that Tony Abbott was going to get in. I didn't vote Liberal and I think most people are sick of the major parties and are happy that it is all over. Sandra Deboer, Cannonvale: I'm happy that the Liberals got in and are going to get the country back in the black. I hope they stop the asylum seekers and look after the Australian people first. John Burdoe, Dingo Beach: I wasn't surprised, everyone knew that was going to happen but I think it is time for a complete change. Australia needs someone who has the guts to stand up for the people. Jill Moore, Shute Harbour: We voted Rudd in and he was kicked out so it makes you question how much power our votes have. I don't think either of the major parties are working for the people anymore. Paul Sheridan, Cannonvale: I voted Liberal and voted a minor party in the senate. I was happy to see Clive Palmer win a few seats. We need a third party to have balance in the government.
