Brendan does good

The 7% swing against the government is good news for Brendan Nelson and the coalition. It should keep Nelson leader for a while longer. It appears the proposed fuel excise cut was a big winner for the opposition and there was considerable hostility to the alcopop tax and emission trading. However this was a safe National seat so a win is unsurprising. However Alexander Downer may resign soon bring an by-election in Mayo, a much more interesting seat. Nelson better win that if he wants to keep his job.

Update: Could the wheels be coming off the Rudd wagon already? According to this report the government's school computers policy is falling apart.
