Aussies Call For Queensland To Secede From Australia

Aussies are calling for Queensland to be 'cut loose' after the Federal Election result that stunned a nation.

Labor needed a decent result in QLD to nab government -- but it seems that a lot of conservative politicians have actually increased their results from the 2016 election.

Very early, but Senate results in Queensland are giving LNP three seats (currently on 2.7 quotas). Malcolm Roberts is looking likely as well - almost one full quota. https://ab.co/2WcWMhU #ausvotes

35 people are talking about this
In a number of other Liberal seats, the Coalition increased its lead. In the Senate, Fraser Anning has been dumped as a QLD senator, and Clive Palmer's huge cash spend looks like it will be all for nothing as he polls just a trickle of votes -- but One Nation's Malcolm Roberts is in a good spot to be returned in his own right. The results from Queensland became a beacon for the post-election result anger for a lot of people, so much so #Quexit trended throughout election night and hundreds continue to call for it via Twitter.

 Many questions remain over the unexpected election result, with Labor left picking up the pieces of what was widely expected to be their greatest win.
