The election result is hardly an overwhelming endorsement of Labor. Not only was result close, but Labor's primary vote, while up by just under two per cent was barely 38 per cent.

Labor oppositions campaigning against the privatisation of assets by state and federal governments should think again. It's in their political and economic interests to allow them to proceed.

It is difficult for those of us who were the beneficiaries to pick those we endorse the most. Education must be high on the list.
