Thanks Warringah? Kerryn Phelps Gets Her New Electorate Name Wrong

After a wild by-election campaign, one would forgive Kerryn Phelps for being tired.

But as the final votes were being tallied to confirm Phelps' victory, the incoming Member for Wentworth appeared to forget where she was.

"First of all, thank you for the people of Warringah... of Wentworth" she said in her victory address.

Phelps' 'Purple People' supporters, who had packed out the North Bondi Surf Life Saving Club to celebrate the history-making victory, still burst into wild applause.

But was it really a mistake?

Many on Twitter were quick to point out the seat of Warringah is currently held by former Prime Minster Tony Abbott.

"Love the Freudian slip from Kerryn Phelps. Warringah knows it too. #Tonesisnext," said one Tweeter.
