These are some of the best tweets I saw:
The Press Conference began at 3pm the following occurred as the clock ticked through to about 3:35pm
No sign of Windsor. For crying in a bucket. *head explodes*
Therese_Rein “watching” Presser on Twitter from London. Thank you
Odds are… We’re about to find out LABOR REMAINS IN POWER … Oakeshott about to speak <= If Tony ever wraps it up.
@bolshymum Tony Windsor obviously isn’t doing the school run today…
Did the school run, got the Maccas ice creams now waiting, waiting, waiting…
mr11 arrives home just in time to watch final decision. he has followed with more interest than others in my family!
Come on I’ve gotta get the kids from school
Where’s that orchestra they have at the Oscars?
Another election would have been quicker
Omg I’m sitting on the side of the hway with a tiny transistor radio which will die any second. Just. Say. It.
Am waiting for the #masterchef fireball!!!
Why is it that politicians have to ruin things by speaking?
There are going to be alot of kids hanging around school gates at 3.30pm
Oakeshott’s forgotten the question and is about to toast the bride & groom.
Someone THROW SOMETHING AT HIM
@TracyGrimshaw Just ducked out to read War and Peace. Has Oakeshott announced yet?
Fidel Castro gives shorter speeches than these.
Don’t hold your breath waiting for the outcome, Australia. Really. Don’t. It’d be dangerous.
Makes Katter seem mute.
I feel sorry for Oakeshotts kids. Must be a form of child abuse at that dinner table.
My 12yo is screaming OH MY GOD! at the tv. She is waiting for me to make a toasted sandwich.
Oakeshott’s future career as a hostage negotiator that bores terrorists to sleep is assured.
Won’t need a decision. By the time he finishes it will be time for the next election.
KevinRuddExPM MY POLITICAL ASSASSINATION WAS QUICKER THAN THIS
ok, my brother has driven to my house from orange in the time this speech is taking. remarkable.
This is like getting a lecture from your parents. You lost me at Hello.
LaurieOakes The way Oakeshott is going we could be here for another fortnight.
And the children of Australia go hungry for their after-school snacks while Mr Oakeshott goes on. And on. And on.
LaurieOakes It’s Labor.Official.At last.
We have a government. I can pee now 🙂
So what happened to the four-minute rule, Oakeshott?
Hmmm.. Barbra Streisand comes on with Send in the Clowns straight after the announcement, coincidence?
