Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

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.
