Update : The Tories won. In Fremantle, SA candidate Sanna Andrew currently has 1.1% of the vote; in Perth, Farida Iqbal got 0.9% of the vote (155 votes), a few hundred less but a better percentage than she gained in 2007 in Fraser; and in Willagee, Sam Wainwright has received 2.1%.
The Tories are gonna win.
SA are running three candidates: Sanna Andrew in Fremantle, Farida Iqbal in Perth and Sam Wainwright in Willagee.

Speaking of Brendon O’Connell, he ‘retired’ from politics late last year. As a result, a number of blogs — brendonoconnell.blogspot.com, brendonoconnellincarcerated.blogspot.com, www.brendonoconnellincarcerated2.blogspot.com — dedicated to supporting Brendon have been closed, though there are others documenting his titanic struggle.
