Number one son sitting on the bear-proof food safe at the Grayling Hole #Spatsizi I was wondering what the bear was supposed to eat if it couldn’t get your picnic basket.

Day whatever of our week dawns #Spatsizi and the pilots are already fuelling their floatplanes to take us out to catch (and release) some unwary trout. Hope springs eternal in the breast of this old trout hunter.

At the top of our hill climb today. Spot the float planes at the bottom of the shot. It was quite a hike #Spatsizi

 

Tough day ... hot chocolate and marshmallows in the snow.

The Black Family spent the day on the famous dry fly Firesteel River today. No room left for floatplanes.

Flying up front in the Cessna 185 and getting a goat's eye view of the ranges en route to the Spatsizi plateau. Timeless beauty of nature putting on a show.

We had an afternoon to spare in beautiful downturn Smithers and paused, en route to the off licence, for this stunning shot of a twilight soccer match. Qld doesn't have the snowy backdrop, but it could have twilight sport with daylight saving.

We're off on Air Canada to #Spatsizi finally, after 2.5 years of covid. No dramas at Sydney today if you're 3 hours plus early. As the signs says, we can relax (touch wood).

2022 Federal Election Swing Map

2022 Election Swing Map

Category:Election Profiles,Election Profiles 2022

The big winners and losers in the 2022 Election can be seen in our online interactive ADS 2022 Election Map.

The five big players in 2022 were the traditional majors: the ALP and the Coalition, but also the minor parties, like the Greens, the Teals and the Others (including One Nation and the UAP).

The influence of the minor parties in 2022 was wielded not so much through their preferences, but through the sheer size of their primary votes, as the support base for the major parties shrunk, with the ALP going backwards in some of its once-safest seats in Victoria to One Nation, the UAP and the Teals and the Liberal Party copping an absolute hiding in its wealthiest seats to Independents and in its former stronghold of Western Australia.  

Teal campaigns run by the Climate 200 group wiped out the Green primary vote when they both ran in safe Liberal like Kooyong, but where there was no Teal candidate, as we saw in three Brisbane River seats won by the Greens, the Liberal primary vote losses switched directly to the Greens.

The primary vote for the Others group exceeded 20 percent after ten percent plus swings to the minor parties in normally-solid Labor seats across Victoria, NSW and Tasmania.

While the Liberal Party has a problem in its safest seats with the higher-income Teals, the ALP has a problem in its safest, lower-income seats, with right wing minor parties.

The interactive Esri map also shows an innovative cube layer for two of the key demographic drivers for the Teal vote: Female Professionals and Top Quartile income earners, so you can see how these two variables interact.
