BREAKING NEWS

WRITS BEING PREPARED AS WE SPEAK.
ELECTIONS WILL BE ON JAN 17 th.
ANNOUNCEMENT DUE TODAY OR TOMORROW.
THANK GOD FINALLY WE GET TO VOTE TO REMOVE THIS PLAGUE FROM AROUND US!!!!!!

Dec 20, 2:17 PM (GMT)

The outgoing PM will be addressing the nation at 1.00 pm today to anounce the 17 th as the date.

OK, Wishing In Vain. We don’t have this date from any other of our sources, but at least one other source says the announcement is coming today.

Now… where are the details of the promised integrity legislation from the DLP?

Thompson isn’t going to bother with that now, is he?

… because he and DLP don’t really want effective integrity legislation.

A damned shame that they didn’t show any leadership in this area. More on this later, but Thompson’s failure to establish leadership in this area will probably cost him the election.
