Everybody back to Debus
As predicted by so many, Bob Debus was successful in taking the seat of Macquarie. He was the former state member of the Blue Mountains and well known there and in NSW more generally for his ministerial roles. He also benefited from the redrawing of the electoral boundaries and from the general swing to Labor.
And the much loathed PM John Howard looks to have lost his own seat - only the second Prime Minister ever to do so.
