Voting places where I've lived. East Innisfail and Mareeba West, in Kennedy, both voted for Mad Bob, who I respect but disagree with. St Lucia and Toowong voted Lib, as did Indooroopilly West, in Ryan. What's going on, all of my old haunts voted conservative. This doesn't surprise me in the north, but in Ryan, I don't get it. It should be full of the liberal elites from whom Howard supposedly profits by bagging.

Not sure I get it either - Ryan includes areas like Upper Brookfield where I'd expect strong green/left support, but in fact Ryan is one of the safest seats for the Libs (in fact, in the State elections, the same area is the only Liberal seat in Brisbane!)

So, while it's depressing to live here, maybe its an opportunity to change the area.
