A Conservative Win Down Under

| 1 Comment
The conservatives won Australia's election over the weekend.  The coalition of the Liberal and National Parties ousted the Labor Party.*

Crime was not the central issue, but I was curious what the new government's approach would be.  The coalition's crime policy is here.  The overall tone is a tough-on-crime one.
*The Liberal Party is the conservative party.  You have to look north, not south, for straightforwardly named parties.  The ousted party is Labor, not Labour.

I find point 3 interesting regarding gun crime, especially point 3(c).

Are the Liberals (or their coalition) colloquially refered to as "Tories"?
