Garrett retains his seat; Rest of election too close to call

I didn't sleep well overnight, so it was relatively easy to wake up early to listen to AUSTRALIAN ELECTION coverage on 2GB 873 online.
Despite the right-leaning commentator ALAN JONES' protestations to the contrary, the result is too close to call, and might not be decided for a few days -- as both the LABOR PARTY and the LIBERAL/NATIONALS COALITION court recently elected independents. One Labor MP who did retain his seat was PETER GARRETT, the former lead singer of MIDNIGHT OIL.
Garrett retained his seat in the Kingsford Smith electoral division. Garrett took a swipe at Jones during his victory speech. Jones and other 2GB commentators have long targeted Garrett with their ire.
In a week, I can see for myself what all the fuss is about. For now, I'll listen to some Midnight Oil.

Alan Jones is "right-leaning"?!?! I had to stop listening to that station cause of his unending anti-labour claptrap!
