So far, 9 seats have fallen from men to women: Goldstein, Wentwth, Kooyong, Mackellar, Nth Syd, Hasluck, Ryan, Swan, Pearce (though men had retired in latter two)
2 woman lost to men: Griffiths, Robertson

Already a huge improvement to the gender breakdown in the House #insiders
I guess we are seeing women rise on the basis of others doing worse 💁‍♀️
*Griffith but I'm tired
Menzies, Sturt and Macnamara could add to this at this stage.
Gilmore changing hands would be another step backwards.

🧵 An incomplete list of current & former journos who seemed embarrassed by today's press pack antics. No doubt heaps I've missed, no doubt many more unable to speak up.

I know it's the end of the campaign, but is the press pack listening yet? Is self-reflection possible here?

Press pack absolutely losing their minds over Albanese "ditching them" today (leaving them with his shadow treasurer), declaring it "not OK".

Why is it not OK? Do they have a question or twelve they need to ask him about dot points or costings due for release on another day?
It's a shame for those journos who are there trying to ask real policy questions, but many of them (and the loudest ones) have turned the pressers into a waste of time, for him and for us.
Just come to my attention that this decision has been reversed. Thank GOD, now we can finally find out whether Albanese has memorised every single figure in the costings
