"How Can We Dance When Our Earth Is Turning"?



"Peter Garrett has claimed victory in his Sydney-based seat of Kingsford-Smith.

The opposition environment minister spokesman received a rock star welcome from hundreds of supporters at the Randwick Labor club.

"This is an extremely, extremely proud moment for me to be representing the people of Kingsford-Smith again in the federal parliament," he told the crowd.

The former lead singer of Midnight Oil, who was wearing a navy suit and open-necked shirt, refused to speculate on the prospect of becoming environment minister.

"I will serve in any capacity, in any event. It is early still in this election," he said."

The Greens won about 8% in both the house and the senate. In the house, that didn't earn seats, but it did give them some influence (one example being Labor made former Midnight Oil singer and strong environmentalist Peter Garrett its lead spokesperson on environmental affairs and likely new environment minister. In the
senate, that lead to several seats because they use the choice voting
method of proportional voting.
