I should have posted this before the elections 😄

We just had the Western Australian State elections on the 13th March in which the Labor party's win was announced just 43 minutes after voting closed, with Mark McGowan returning as Premier for a second term.
He's become a bit of a super-hero to West Australians since our State has been spared from the Covid devastation that has swept over the world, by closing our borders to all the other states and to overseas visitors, which has allowed us to lead almost normal lives as well as having one of the best economies in Australia and the world. (We only had 9 deaths from Covid).
Some people think he went too far by doing all this, but his landslide victory proves West Australians are happy with the way he handled the pandemic.
