Saturday night’s election result completely blew our collective asses off and we’re 100 per cent here for it. With all this in mind, here are all the best reactions to Labor’s historic victory. I think I can speak for most of us here when I say “holy fucking shit”.
Before we get properly stuck into this reactions rabbit hole, I think the shitposters of Australia deserve a big pat on the back. They really brought their A-game last night and as far as national heroes go, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better smattering of cooked reactions.
Without further ado, let’s get this reactions ball rolling.
Thank you Australia. pic.twitter.com/58ZHJCRIlO— Anthony Albanese (@AlboMP) May 21, 2022

The deep relief is overwhelming me.
We showed tonight we are stronger than fear.
Thinking about all the people seeking asylum & refugees who at least have hope now.

So there you have it, folks.
Those are your most *chef’s kiss* reactions from the 2022 federal election.
BUT WAIT there’s more! Just because election night is over and the reactions are shitposted across the internet doesn’t mean the election fallout is over.
The teal independents experienced a massive swing last night. You can read our quick explainer on who exactly they are right here.
For a big ol’ recap of the entire night’s events, you can read back through our live blog here.
