I don't know how I could have failed to note all this but, in the recent tradition of knife-edge elections, Labor was returned in Tasmania only through a power-sharing arrangement with the Greens.
This has meant, momentously, that their state leader Nick McKim has become the first Greens government minister in Australia.

Hopefully this means the state is a little less under the Gunn than it has been.

Since then Premier David Bartlett has resigned, citing family reasons, and Tassie also has joined another growing trend by having its first female premier Lara Giddings.
