Why the flurry over an October/November election? September 30, 2015

Could this sort of stuff be the reason? Hard to think it was, though no right of centre government such as our own would much like the rising tide of voices saying don’t go cut taxes, but what other reason could there be? All suggestions gratefully accepted.

Well I did try to tell ye that 19th November was the preferred date for the general election for fg. But no one took it up! Now everyone is placing bets!

There’s a host of reasons. Homelessness is going to get worse. The housing crisis means that it has started to percolate to the middle classes.
Winter and all the things that go with it.
A February or March election could be held amidst record numbers on hospital trolleys, towns and villages ravaged by storms etc
They haven’t made all these spending announcements for nothing either.

Maybe they just hate the idea of going all the way to the bumper and then having no choice just as something blows up?

How does anyone feel about fixed term Dails, as here in the UK?

I was thinking of that, but I really don’t think our electoral system is suited to it.

It’s becoming clear to me now that the key reason the govt are going for the week of the 19th November is that I’ll be on me holiers in the Canaries that week and so my killer posts on CLR won’t be there to derail their re-election campaign.

When I’m on me holiers, I’m on me holiers. I do however expect ye all to have instituted THE REVOLUTION by the time I get back :).

PS: Libertad para Las Islas Canarias. Down with the Spanish conquistadores. The Canaries are African.

If the revolution happens, you’ll doubtless be sent back in a sealed train plane.
