Political Predictions Volume 1

Australia Election Close

I keep hearing from people connected from both sides of politics saying that we will have an election around November this year. According to these sources Kevin Rudd will use the next sitting of parliament try to push legislation doomed for blockage and then use the double dissolution trigger. It seams both sides of politics are committed to this course.

Who will lead what?

If Peter Costello doesn’t make a move in the next month, Malcolm Turnbull will unsuccessfully contest the election.Joe Hockey will maintain a number two role and I am sure that one day he will be Prime Minister. My prediction for the next Labor PM is Bill Shorten.

What do you think? Comments welcomed.
