When GrantG sticks to facts and opinions based on those facts there is much that I agree with. It's his ouija board predictions that are his downfall. Here are more from the article.
- We will be going back to the polls in the fall ...guaranteed.
- The Liberals will be led by Kevin Falcon.
- For #1 to happen we have to assume that he predicts Courtney - Comox stays NDP.
- For #1 to happen Andrew Weaver will make no attempt to support the Liberals or the NDP.
If you have a couple of fingers to tap on a keyboard you are now qualified to make predictions here's mine.
Courtenay - Comox will stay NDP. I am not really sure about that as 9 votes isn't much of a lead but if it doesn't stay NDP then the other predictions are no longer relevant.
Andrew Weaver/Greens will not formally support the Liberals but they will allow the Liberals to introduce a throne speech. My guess is that the government will concede some things to the opposition at least through the spring when the Liberals introduce the budget which will doom them then.
Nobody wants an early election. The Liberals need time to get a new leader (and just for the hell of it I guess Todd Stone) and neither opposition party has money to run another campaign this soon.
I could probably make up more pointless predictions but my fingers are tired from tapping.
