    Almost a decade of conservative government in Australia has ended. Votes are still being counted, but it looks like the Liberal and National Party have suffered their worst result in decades. The Greens, independents and minor parties have had historic wins, and will wield significant power in the new parliament. But the government will be led by Anthony Albanese, Australia’s 31st Prime Minister – it’s something even he didn’t think was possible just a few years ago. So how did it all come together? How did Labor react on the night? And while they have won government, are there big lessons in this result that the party will have to take onboard? Today — we go inside the Labor party at the moment it won victory.  Guest: Chief political correspondent for The Saturday Paper, Karen Middleton. Stay in touch with us on Twitter and Instagram
