With the election over and the subsequent horse-trading now finished, it is time for the post mortem. Was it a good result for the Liberal Party and its supporters?

At the most basic level, clearly not. We set out to win government - and we did not get there. It is natural and appropriate to feel bitterly disappointed.

But it is no contradiction to say the Liberal Party ran a very successful campaign. Under Tony Abbott's disciplined and energetic leadership, we took a first-term government to the very brink. Labor lost 16 seats.

When I entered Parliament at a byelection in December - the same week that Tony Abbott became leader - predicting such an outcome at the next general election would have seemed impossibly optimistic.
