Tomorrow, the electorate of Swan will determine if my wife, Hannah Beazley, is to be their representative. She would be a wonderful voice for the community in our national parliament.

@canion Best of luck! I had no idea that she was Kim’s daughter!

@martinfeld Thanks mate. She has the family heritage but she is also brilliant in her own right!

@canion How did it come out?

@Ron Not the national result we wanted with our Conservative party winning. For my wife it is very tight but seems like it might just fall the wrong way.

@canion Okay, fingers crossed that she'll make it over the hump, but if not, I send her big thanks and congratulations for working so hard to make her country and the world better.

@martinfeld @joejenett @ron The result has been disappointing - the conservative government re-elected following a campaign based on fear-mongering. My wife, Hannah Beazley, appears to have just fallen short with 48.3% of the vote. This news article and photo sums up the mood.

@canion Fear-mongering is a great way to put it. I can’t believe the result, frankly; Australia just re-elected the most dysfunctional bunch. Good on her for giving it a go and sticking it to them.

@canion Sorry to hear that. Unfortunately, fear is still winning. Here's hoping that better sense prevails soon.

@canion Sorry to hear that. A reminder to all of us around the world that one good election result in one country (2018 US House) is not sufficient to break this dark trend worldwide :-(
