My tentative conclusions about the Assembly elections in the Australian Capital Territory are that people moved back to voting for one of the two major parties of neoliberalism, that the move was in the main to the Liberals in Opposition rather than to Labor in Government, that part of that move at least was because of concerns about cost of living pressures, that the Greens' support of a fairly modest and neoliberal Labor Government and their role as followers rather than leaders backfired on them and that a tax scare campaign full of lies can work.
