I was going to write "A little bit of sanity in the senate" but now I'm

Family First senator Steve Fielding seems certain to have lost his place.
But the Victorian may be replaced by a philosophically like-minded
newcomer in John Madigan from the socially and economically conservative
Democratic Labor Party.
Mr Madigan, a blacksmith from Ballarat in Victoria, is tipped to take
the final Senate seat even though he received only 2.2 per cent of the
vote. The Greens will now hold the balance of power in the Senate, with
new senators expected to be elected in Victoria, South Australia, NSW
