NSW voters in despair
MASSIVE swings against Labor in elections in NSW over the weekend are a sign of voters' despair.
But Federal Liberals leader Malcolm Turnbull's comments could be a bit premature.
While Labor got a predicted bashing in Sydney the Nationals failed to win back Port Macquarie - a clear sign that voters just south of us prefer the independent view.
That said, Labor did suffer swings of about 20 per cent and lost the once blue ribbon seat of Ryde to the Liberals.
In Sydney voters were clearly angry with what they saw as years of incompetence and waste.
But before we start ushering a new government, let's stop and remind ourselves the next state election here in New South Wales is still two and a half years away.
And in politics anything more than a week is a long time.
